I have a feeling they will be back to Mohegan, Alison, but I don't think it will be in February as they are in DC the next night and they are not going to play three nights in a row...especially when they are just starting.

Mohegan is always a hard one to get with the casino high rollers and the smaller venue. Add to mix that this is THE opening show on the tour. Lots of longtime fans travel for the the openers no matter where they are around the world.

I've never had a problem getting tickets there before. Sat in the front row for last 3 shows. Problem now is that ticket "brokers" aka scalpers bought the pkgs within 2 minutes of on sale. They are now on ticket sites for over $3000 a ticket

Alison - You can check on stubhub.com for tickets and prices if they don't add another show.

..and this venue has never been used for the opening show on a tour before. It's the norm for first shows.

I know there were a lot of bogus listings on the scalper sites. Some even mentioned up to seat 23 in the first row of the pit. NOPE...there are NO seats with those high seat numbers in pits even at the stadium shows.

I've been in that front row myself at the venue through BSWJBJ tickets. BTW...if it's VIP packages you are hoping for I've just pulled two front row seats for Mohegan on TM. Didn't check the other packages.

I think it is very ridiculous that there are more posts in the drug topic and on EVERY picture topic than on this concert one...says it all, doesn't it?

FRONT ROW!! Wow, i'm jealous... no other word for it, but i am happy for you! So, just through ticketmaster you got these tickets? Was it one of "the packages"?

I'm going but don't know when. Got a wonderful surprise check from my dad...first in years and I'm treating myself. Also, discovered I'd paid my second mortgage twice. Thank goodness I caught that mistake. What the pressure of holidays will do to you. I think I'll go to a city where tickets are cheaper and drive a little more. If they are playing in Oregon I'm there. But of course I need to catch up with my Ohio pals somewhere!!! They'll be about everywhere. I like to live vicariously through them.

Local radio station here in Cleveland, OH plays a commercial that says no opening act...show starts 7:30 so it's Bon Jovi all night. Sounds good to me!!

Matt has said no opener. Not sure if that's just for the arena shows or will also carry over to stadiums.

But then you would have missed the show!!:-)

Work hard & play harder. We all set our own priorities and how we spend our earnings is an individual decision. Mine has been to be front row at Bon Jovi shows a few times over the years and I've never regretted any of those decisions.

IF you want it...go for it!!!

A friend of mine that lives in Tampa has purchased tickets for the both of us for the Tampa show. I'm not sure where though. She told me they were near Richie.
