Bruce Springsteen may have closed down Giants Stadium, but it will be Bon Jovi who will open its replacement.

The $1.6 billion Meadowlands football stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., is set to open next spring and Bon Jovi is expected to be the first concert, according to The Record.

Favorable weather conditions and a well-run timetable has put the stadium months ahead of its original completion date, the paper said.
