Bon Jovi Waives Concert Fee In Spain

MADRD, Spain (VIP NEWS) — US rock star Jon Bon Jovi says he will perform in Madrid for no fee, after realising many fans in crisis-hit Spain could not otherwise afford to attend.

The unusually cheap tickets for the gig have already sold out.

They were on sale for between 18 and 39 euros, compared to the equivalent of 76 euros which the average ticket cost for a concert in Manchester, UK next week.

Bon Jovi said he feared many fans would not be able to afford the full price.

The 51-year-old told Spain's El Mundo newspaper that when he was 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.

But not wanting to let his Spanish fans down, he said he decided that he would perform in Madrid on 27 June for free. –According to BBC
