It has been announced that hometown heroes the J. Geils Band will open for Bon Jovi this July 20 at Gillette Stadium. The rock veterans and ZLX 26th Anniversary Concert headliners certainly give fans in Foxboro one hell of an opener.
Bon Jovi’s “Because We Can” world tour has already begun, and will head to Europe in May before returning to the states for shows in July. The concert with the J. Geils Band is the only classic rock concert scheduled for this summer at Gillette Stadium so far – looks like no Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney or U2 this year.
Tickets are on sale starting at $19.50 via Ticketmaster online, or calling 1-800-745-3000.
