  1. Question for aspiring applicants: do we have to stay and listen to Bon Jovi?

  2. LiLi says:

    Blotto should!

  3. Mike says:

    Is Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes opening for Bon Jovi @ Saratoga on July 11th?

  4. Greg says:

    Hey Mike –

    Yeah, I read that in Metroland, too, but I don’t know where they got that info. I don’t think it’s gonna happen. According to Southside Johnny’s website, the band is slated to open for Bon Jovi on Monday night at the Blossom Music Center near Cleveland, but that’s the ONLY Bon Jovi date on their tour schedule. (Also, Southside Johnny’s schedule has them playing at a festival in the Netherlands today (Sat.).

    So as far as we know here in Nippertown, local Albany band Ten Year Vamp is doing the opening act honors at Saratoga at 8pm.
