The Cleveland Browns organization is remaining tight lipped as the the reason the Bon Jovi concert along with the Fan Fest pep rally has been canceled. Perhaps it had something to do with ticket sales. If you wanted good seats to see the New Jersey rocker it would set you back a pretty penny.
Tickets to the event anywhere on the floor or the VIP section ranged in price from $399.00 - $1375.00. Of course if you were willing to part ways with that kind of cash to attend Fan Fest, you would get to meet and great some of the Cleveland Browns players.
When the concert was first announced, team CEO Joe Banner was excited. He thought pulling off an event like this could help draw other big named acts to First Energy Stadium in the future. The Browns released a statement telling fans who bought tickets to return to their point of purchase to get a refund.
Browns spokesman Neal Gulkis said the entire event, which was to have included a Fan Fest and a huge pep rally between the performances by Michael Stanley and the Resonators and Bon Jovi, has been canceled.
Gulkis also said; the cancellation of this event won't sour the Browns on the possibility of future concerts and other events. "Back when this was announced, I know Joe and Alec were both very enthusiastic about attracting big events to the stadium," Gulkis wrote. "That commitment has not changed."
