Just because Philip Anschutz has a reputation for being one of the most secretive billionaire moguls in the world doesn’t mean he’s a quiet man. There’s no telling for sure, but he apparently likes his rock and roll. I’m only guessing that, of course, because mega-rockers Bon Jovi will play an unusual benefit show January 21 for the University of Colorado Hospital’s Center for Dependency, Addiction, and Rehabilitation, which is celebrating its fifth anniversary, writes the Denver Business Journal.
Anschutz, who has already donated millions to the medical complex, has scored the band through his entertainment company, AEG. “Getting this band is amazing because they’re coming out for a one-off show, and they sold out the Pepsi Center the last two times they came through,” AEG Live Rocky Mountain Region president Chuck Morris, the show’s producer, tells The Denver Post.

But these aren’t Pepsi Center seats. They’re chairs around intimate tables in a ballroom. So expect to dish out some big bucks if you want to see the show. Tables for 10 guests sold at the “Blaze of Glory” level will set you back $50,000, but you’ll get some perks, like passes to a pre-concert elbow-rubber and tickets to see Bon Jovi again on tour in 2011, according to a news release. On the less pricey end, an “I’ll Be There For You” table will cost $2,500.
