CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have cancelled a concert at their stadium by rockers Bon Jovi.
The show had been scheduled for July 14 at FirstEnergy Stadium. The NFL team did not provide any reason today for the concert, which was to kick off the Browns’ 2013 season, being scrapped.
The Browns said ticket holders should return to their original point of purchase for refunds.
The event was to include a performance by local performers Michael Stanley and the Resonators and a pep rally for fans at the 70,000-seat stadium.
Last month, Browns CEO Joe Banner said the team was hoping the concert could attract bigger-named acts and events in the future.
