SAFC fans make the most of priority booking.

Sunderland’s Stadium of Light will welcome US rock gods Bon Jovi in the summer of 2013, as the band hits the road on its worldwide Bon Jovi: Because We Can – The Tour.

A special pre-sale of tickets took place today for Bon Jovi fan club members and Sunderland fans and sales have been unprecedented. There has been exceptional demand for tickets across all venues, with Sunderland leading the way.

The band last performed in the North East in 2000.
