Sound Concerns Arise With Bon Jovi to play Hyde Park This Summer

 

Bon Jovi will play London's Hyde Park on 5 July as part of Barclaycard British Summer Time, a 10-day event featuring six concerts across two weekends, from 28 June to 7 July.

Good news for fans of the legendary rocker, no doubt, but, following complaints last year about noise restrictions and curfew times, concerns that the gig won't be loud enough have surfaced. "With the new plans we've put in, we think it's going to be louder while still respecting what's going on in the community," AEG Live and Event director Jim King said, during a press conference in London. "I've absolutely no doubt that Bon Jovi will be exactly the same if not louder than last time they played. We've had independent reports on this, and the new orientation of the stage gives us at least 3dB onsite increase. For those who know about sound that's a significant increase."

Jon Bon Jovi said his band had been offered to headline shows at the Olympic Park in Stratford, east London, but had declined. "We love Hyde Park for nostalgia and loyalty reasons," he said, adding: "We'll make sure we play as loud as 11, we'll turn it right up and let them deal with that."

Here are Bon Jovi performing Hallelujah:
