Rockers force Phoenix from home ground

7:56 pm on 23 June 2010

The Bon Jovi concert in Wellington in December has forced the Wellington Phoenix FC to move their A-League match with Adelaide United to Christchurch.

The American rockers will play at Westpac Stadium on 4 December - the day before the Phoenix were to host Adelaide United.

Since packing up after the show is likely to take several days, the Phoenix will play the Reds at AMI Stadium on 5 December.

The match originally scheduled in Christchurch on 18 December against the Newcastle Jets will now be played in Wellington.
