Rumours were swirling about who would be on stage at this year's Dicks' Sporting Goods Open August 14th through the 20th at the En-Joie Golf Course.

What type of music would it be from the mystery artist? Well, some got it right. Not sure how exactly, but you know secrets don't always keep secret. Never-the-less, we're excited to announce through Broome County Community Charities, Inc., that Bon Jovi will rock the McIntosh Sound Stage on Friday August 18th!

Tickets go on sale Friday January 20th at 10am through Ticketmaster and at Dick's Sporting Goods Stores. The Dick's Open website mentions that "the concert ticket will allow the holder to enjoy both Friday’s First Round of PGA TOUR Champions Golf and the Friday Night Concert on the McIntosh Soundstage."

The tease was that this could be the biggest act to come to the Dick's Sporting Good's Open in the 11 years of existence, and, not to discount the great performers of the past, I believe that statement will be correct.

Bon Jovi has a long history of great Rock-n-Roll and we're pumped to sing along to all those hits August 14th. Set the on-sale date and get your tickets before they sell out. I predict they will.
