Bon Jovi concert chronology


"One Wild Night Tour" is a worldwide tour in support of band's seventh studio album Crush (2000). Originally, band planned to kick off the tour in Japan, but instead decided to headline the charity concert on Melbourne's Colonial Stadium on March 24, 2001, which purpose to raise funds for flood-stricken farmers. There were 34,000 attenders and the concert grossed $850,000. Because of the falling Australian dollar, production costs soared close $500,000 and it involved transporting 70 tons of Bon Jovi's equipment in a jumbo jet from the United States. Paul Krige, managing director of Universal Music Australia, said that A$300,000 were made from ticket sales alone. Approximately $50,000 were raised from telethon that was hold nationally on April 15, 2001. by Seven Network, which screened the concert on that day. Proceeds went to State Emergency Services and Volunteer Bushfire Service. Six tracks from Bon Jovi's set were included on Australian only bonus CD of the Bon Jovi's debut live album One Wild Night Live 1985-2001 (2001).[1]

Japanese leg of the tour kicked off in Yokohama with two concerts in Yokohama Arena on March 28 and 29 2001. Japanese leg of the tour lasted until April 5, 2001. Following five shows in Japan, band embarked on the first North American leg of the tour on April 18, 2001 playing concerts in arenas and amphitheaters. Through May 2001, band headed to Europe for a month of concerts before returning to United States for a series of concerts that culminated with July 27 show at Giants Stadium in New Jersey. A special pre-sale promotion was hold for the concerts in United States, where half of tickets in all price ranges were available through Ticketmaster's official website at least two days before the public on sale date. Fans who registered at the band's official website by February 21, 2001. had the opportunity to purchase a maximum of four tickets. Also as a bonus, those who registered automatically entered into a contest to win a guitar autographed by the band members.[2]
