You Give Love a Bad Name

Remember when the price of a concert ticket was dependent on seat location? Closer to the stage = more $$. Now you'll find packages that have a variety of perks--an opportunity to rub elbows with members of the band, seats in the front, preferred parking--and that all translates into a premium price.

Let's look at what's included in "The Diamond Circle VIP Experience" for Bon Jovi:

  • One Incredible Front Row* Ticket inside the Exclusive Circle!* Or in the First Three Rows in the following markets: East Rutherford, Chicago, Foxboro, Regina, Toronto, Winnipeg & Edmonton.** Please note there is NO CIRCLE SECTION IN CALGARY - the Diamond VIP Package will be based on the First Row
  • One Exclusive Collectable Bon Jovi VIP Concert Chair (You sit in it, you watch the show, and then you take it home with you!)
  • Special VIP Cocktail Upon Arrival
  • Deluxe Catered VIP Preshow Hospitality
  • Deluxe VIP Open Bar*
  • Dedicated On-Site VIP Host
  • VIP Preferred Parking* (Where available)
  • VIP Priority Check-In
  • Separate VIP Entrance at Venue (Where available)
  • One Autographed Bon Jovi Souvenir Tour Program!
  • One Premium Bon Jovi Leather Messenger Bag (Created Exclusively For Circle VIP Packages Only!)
  • $150.00 Gift Card to the On-Line Bon Jovi Store
  • One Limited Edition Circle VIP Laminate*** & Matching Lanyard
  • One Commemorative Souvenir Concert Ticket***
    ***Commemorative VIP Laminates and Souvenir Concert Ticket are for commemorative purposes only. The VIP Laminate or Souvenir Concert Ticket does not gain or authorize access into the venue, VIP or any backstage areas.

The price for this exclusive experience? $1,875. Per person. And TM only sells these tickets in multiples of TWO.

That must be one super-fantastic chair. I wonder how fans are supposed to get them home--certainly they're not fold-up or inflatable (heaven forbid), not for that price.

BTW, did you notice what's missing in this package? The list of bene's doesn't include a meet and greet with the band. LOL. That's hilarious!

I have no doubt that someone somewhere will buy these tickets. Maybe they'll write them off as a business expense or something.



  • I'd rather watch videos of Jon Bovi, the Bon Jovi opposite band.
