“We’ve gotten the chance to bookend what is the most successful tour in the world this year with a free concert for anyone in New York,” frontman Jon Bon Jovi said at a news conference alongside New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and other officials. “I just travelled the world again, and New York is still the greatest city in the world.”
Fans can start entering the Great Lawn area at 2 p.m. 60,000 tickets have been made available at the city’s ballparks. Though the event is free, concert go-ers must have tickets.
