Bon Jovi Infuriate Fans

Bon Jovi have been blasted for "ludicrous" ticket prices for their London residency.

The 'We Weren't Born to Follow' rockers are set to play a string of dates at the city's O2 Arena from June 7 2010, but fans are upset they will have to pay up to a staggering £1,300 to see their idols.

General admission to the shows costs £45 for the cheapest seats, rising to £200, while the price of the highest-banded premium tickets has led angry fans to call for a boycott of the concerts.

One wrote on the group's website: "I am going to stand up for what I believe in and use my earnings to feed my kids rather than lining some fat cat's pockets."

Another added: "After writing an album about the world's problems with the recession the prices are just a mockery."

Despite the complaints the band's initial five shows sold out in hours, and another nine dates in 'The Circle Tour' were subsequently added.

The high prices are in contrast to those sold by other stars for their dates at the venue.

Tickets for Michael Jackson's 'This Is It' 50-date residency cost £50 to £75, with a corporate package charged at £7900.

In June, unsold VIP Britney Spears tickets with a face value of £100 were sold off at £2 each to fill up the arena.

Meanwhile, Bon Jovi performed on UK TV talent show 'The X Factor' last night (01.11.09), where lead singer Jon Bon Jovi reportedly made some unusual backstage demands.

A source said: "Jon made a big deal about his loo seat. He wanted it to be a brand new seat and his people said he wanted to see it before it was fitted upon his arrival at the studios."

The band will complete a world tour in 2010, in support of their latest album 'The Circle'.
