I've checked and the prices are $17.50, $27.50, $47.50, $57.50, $77.50 and $137.50 plus the venue fee. The seating chart shows that it's again a 360 degree end stage set up. Bon Jovi has six ticket packages that get real expensive and it looks like a similar stage to the Circle tour.
I paid $17.50 plus fees and it came to $28.00 for upper level behind the stage tickets. I went to their show in Des Moines, IA in May 2011. No opening act also.

Is heroin included with the ticket price....

Richie Sambora is going to be the "house band" for Craig Fergusion next week... that should be pretty funny.... but of course one needs a sense of humor for that.

Not really a Bon Jovi fan but for the pure cheese factor and the fact that I've never seen them live, for only $20 at the box office, I might actually be inclined to consider this. If only I knew it was going to be an entire show of Slippery/New Jersey-era hits as opposed to that countrified crap he's been spewing out in recent years. Bonus if some of the soccer moms breakout their old torn jeans or fishnets.

I'm wondering if they're going back out with the same staging as last time, and if anyone can confirm it..
Amazing show. Hugest and most extravagant video production I've ever seen with the exception of The Wall and the larger U2 shows.
It's worth seeing again, I'll go.
They're a great band IMO and I just love a spectacle/production!

BTW, did any of you regulars make it over to Record Bar on Sunday?
Some really great efforts on the DEVO tribute. There's a band that I believe is called 'Ufft' that rocks.
Their last set, the tribute to The Ramones was the best of the night & thei DEVO set kicked ass too.
Mucho thanks to Robert Moore. I hope to meet him, and pass along my future tribute request list!
(like, maybe Todd Rundgren?)

The seating chart shows a stage that looks like a circle such as, the 2010-2011 Circle Tour. I agree that they had an amazing video system. It would split into separate pieces and there would be 8 by 8 so, that's 64 smaller video screens. The only thing better was the Genesis When In Rome 2007 DVD and it had the largest LED video wall used on tour. I never did see it live though.
The Wall Tour was white blocks that had projection images put on it. It wasn't an LED video system. It looks like Bon Jovi with their new tour will be more elaborate then, the Circle tour.

Corkey, thanks for the props. UFT! is what we were called '87-'90. We got back together two years ago to learn some Husker Du songs and have since done Replacements, Soul Asylum, Minutemen, Ramones and now Devo tracks. Building up a solid repertoire of obscure alt-rock cover songs. Thanks for your continued support of the tribute series. It's one of my favorite things we do at recordBar.

I bought a membership to get tickets for this fiasco, I got these for friends of my wifes, Bon Jovi is not a R&R Band, They are a Garage Band that is popular with Chicks. But I was blown away by what they wanted for the Tickets during the Pre-Sale. They have really bad seats available for under $100 bucks. Nothing is available under that if you are inclined to see the show. I cut my losses, they would not return the Fan Club Membership, but I am not going to be buying Vastly overpriced tickets from these Guys. Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen tickets are a real bargain compared to this. Oh and Yes those are REAL R&R Bands.

I just wanted to say a quick 'thanks' to Steve & Mr Moore for their responses.
These shows have been a real pleasure!
I'm an aging music fan, likely the oldest fart in the room, and I wish the shows attracted more folks.
It can't be easy working these tunes up, especially with day jobs & all the rest of the distractions that a regular life brings.
So, many thanks to all the bands. I appreciate hearing these shows. As a DEVO fan, I really never thought I'd hear any of these songs again.
Spread the word. Let's support them.
