Bon Jovi Waive Madrid Gig Fee to Help Spain's Economy
Bon Jovi are waiving their performance fee for their upcoming show in Spain because of the current economic crisis.

As NME reports, tickets to the show, which takes place on June 27th, were sold at reduced prices of 18 and 39 euros. Ticket sales will go towards the costs for the venue, operating costs and show staff.

As Jon Bon Jovi told Spain's El Mundo newspaper, Madrid had originally been left off the tour map because of Economic uncertainties.

"When we started planning our tour for our album, 'What About Now', we did a study and found that, due to the economic situation, Spain wouldnt be on the roadmap," he said. "However, we didn't want to ditch the fans of a country I love and has treated me so well for 30 years."

Full price tickets to a stadium gig in Spain would normally cost around 75 euros.
