MILWAUKEE -- The BMO Harris Bradley Center went out with a bang with Bon Jovi hitting the stage Sunday night to a sell out crowd.
This will likely be the final major concert at the soon to be demolished arena.
“We were the third band to play here, but the first to sell it out," said Michael Rew. Bon Jovi’s Back Line Crew Chief. “We’ve sold it out every time since and this is our sixth time at the Bradley Center.”
Bon Jovi was just inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They’re one of the original hair bands from the 80’s and on Sunday night, Bon Jovi proved nearly four decades in the business is not draining their energy.
“We saw Bon Jovi once with our friends, once together so this is the third show here at the Bradley,” said Dawn Wendell-Helnore.
Fans promise they will never say goodbye to Bon Jovi or forget the Bradley Center.
“It’s a beautiful place," said Mike Orlando with the band "Stereo Satellite." "We could not be more proud to be a part of history. The last horah here."
The Bradley Center is being replaced by a $500 million arena under construction next door.
