The show goes on

New Meadowlands Stadium won’t have the Jets and Giants for a few months, but it’s already carving out a spot on the summer concert circuit. Bon Jovi, which played three shows there in May, is returning in July, not long after a stop by the Eagles.

Stadiums and ballparks looking to pick up some revenue by booking summer concerts took a double hit this year, when country superstar Kenny Chesney decided to take the season off and front man Bono’s back problems forced rock juggernaut U2 to postpone North American dates in June and July. But the party will go on at a few big league outdoor facilities. Here’s a quick look at their dates for this summer.
