The New York Daily News said the July 12 event is to be part of the preface to the upcoming Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
"I like baseball, but the world knows I'm a football guy," the newspaper quoted front-man Jon Bon Jovi as saying at a City Hall announcement Monday. "I own an arena team. I live and love football."
The band and Major League Baseball are to hand out 60,000 ducats across the city for the free show, the newspaper reported.
