ESTONIA          

To get as many fans to Bon Jovi’s 2 June concert from neighbouring Finland, promoters Live Nation Finland and Live Nation Baltics have arranged a special ferry from Helsinki with Estonian shipping company Tallink.

The region’s largest ferry, Silja Europa, can take over 3,000 people and as the journey from Helsinki to Tallinn takes about three hours, arriving at 6.30pm, fans will have plenty of time to make the short trip to the venue Lauluväljak for the 9pm show start.

Tickets are priced for locals for this first ever in the Baltics concert as part of the band’s ‘This House Is Not For Sale’ tour.

With concert tickets from €74-104 ($84-118), package rates for entrance, return ferry and cabin start at €99 ($113).

“We are expecting lots of concert-goers and sales look promising,” says Silja Line’s Jani Mäkelä, stressing the sailing is open to all on a first-come first-served basis – for the concert or travellers.

Live Nation Finland’s Piia Lindroos adds, “What a great way to spend the night after the concert aboard the boat that takes you home the next day.”

The concert is being held at Lauluväljak, which used a capacity of 60,000 for last year’s Guns N’Roses show, although it went to 80,000 for a Madonna concert some years ago.
