Coinciding with what would have been Les Paul's 99th birthday, Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora announced on Monday that he'll play a series of shows next month at The Iridium, the famous New York City jazz club where Paul regularly performed. The veteran rocker will play one concert on July 22 and two shows the following night.
Sambora's July 23 gigs will be taped for an upcoming episode of the public television series Front and Center. Fans currently can visit Richie's Twitter account, where they can grab a code to buy tickets to the July 22 performance, which will go on sale this Thursday. Tickets for the July 23 gigs will be available starting on Friday. VIP packages also will be sold.
All merchandise sold at the concerts will benefit the Les Paul Foundation, which supports music education, innovations in sound engineering and medical research.
