Stanley Park’s biggest ever rock concert will feature none other than Bon Jovi.
Yesterday, rumours abound that Bon Jovi was set to play Stanley Park’s Brockton Point for an August concert event called An Urban Forest Concert: An Evening With A Rock Legend. The headliner was unconfirmed, but The Vancouver Sun Blog speculated it to be Bon Jovi by connecting an image used in the event’s promotional poster with a classic still of the rocker.
Now, we are able to confirm the performer is indeed Bon Jovi after coming across a tour company webpage, Runaway Tours, that plans trips to Bon Jovi concerts around the world.
The company is promoting a Vancouver trip to see Bon Jovi and The Kings of Suburbia at Brockton Point on August 22, 2015 – the same location and date of the Urban Forest Concert. They are also offering a two-night stay at the Westin Bayshore, a pre-show Q&A with Jon Bon Jovi, a boat cruise, photos with the band and other exclusive items.
The Runaway Tours trip goes on sale Friday, June 12 at noon, just after the official concert announcement will be made by Paper Rain Productions, a Vancouver company that “presents the world’s greatest artists in the world’s grandest outdoor venues”, during a press conference.
At this point it is unknown how much tickets to the show will be or when they will go on sale. For that information, we will have to wait until tomorrow.
