Bon Jovi waives Madrid concert fee to make tickets cheaper
Jon Bon Jovi has revealed that his band have waived their fee at a concert in Madrid next month, given the country’s economic crisis.
The unusually cheap tickets have already sold out. They were on sale for between 18 and 39 euros.
This compares to the equivalent of 76 euros – the average ticket cost for a Bon Jovi concert in Manchester, UK, next week.
There were fears many fans would not be able to afford the full price.
Jon Bon Jovi, 51, told Spain’s El Mundo newspaper that when the band were planning this summer’s European tour, Madrid had originally been left-off the list of venues over fears that the event might not sell out because of Spain’s economic crisis.
Not wanting to let the Spanish fans down, Bon Jovi decided they would perform in Madrid on June 27 for free.
