All-Star rocker Bon Jovi will be performing a free concert at New York’s Central Park on July 12th at 8PM to kick off Major League Baseball’s 2008 All-Star game celebrations taking place at Yankee Stadium on July 15th.
“All-Star Summer is set to hit New York City in a few weeks, and the lineup of festivities just added another future Hall-of-Famer in Bon Jovi,” said New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
“The free concert in Central Park is going to help make this year’s All-Star Summer a celebration to remember. The 2008 All-Star Game will pay tribute to the storied history of Yankee Stadium, and Bon Jovi will help us ensure it goes out in a blaze of glory — hopefully a blaze in late October.”
Tickets for this free event become available on Wednesday July 2nd at MLB.com.
