A lucky group of Staten Islanders came away with free Bon Jovi tickets early this morning.The rest are out of luck.The Bon Jovi concert is part of the All-Star Game festivities. I'm assuming that the game itself is sold out already, but if they are having trouble selling tickets for some reason, they can simply tell people in Staten Island that Dave Winfield, Hubie Brooks, and Teddy Higuera will be playing. The tickets would be gone in a jiffy.
By 9:46 a.m., all 1,500 tickets to the free July 15 concert in Central Park that were available at Richmond County Bank Ballpark in St. George had been given away. The ticket frenzy meant only the most devoted were rewarded in a crowd that had begun
lining up before sundown last night.
That is, assuming the Islanders didn't spend all of their money on McDLTs and Swatch watches.
