Jon, Not Bruce, Will Open Stadium

On October 9th, the E Street Band played the last concert in Giants Stadium before its date with the wrecking ball at the end of the NFL season (story).  With the group expected to disband, at least temporarily, after the last date on the current tour, Bruce Springsteen was probably out of contention to open the stadium that replaces it.  That honor will go to another Jersey Rocker.  As Rock Insights previously reported, Jon Bon Jovi and his band have been tapped to open the the new stadium. The dates, announced today (10/22), are April 26 & 27. The $1.6 billion home for the Giants and the Jets, dubbed Meadowlands Stadium unless or until naming rights can be sold, is expected to be ready ahead of schedule in the spring.
