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 December 4. the

day before the Phoenix were to host Adelaide United.

With packing up after the show likely to take several days the Phoenix will now

play the Reds at AMI Stadium on December 5.

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