BALDWIN COUNTY, Alabama -- Long lines of fans waited Saturday for free tickets to the Bon Jovi concert being held in October to help boost tourism in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Some fans arrived Friday night and camped out for the tickets.


Bon Jovi will perform on Gulf Shores Beach on Friday, Oct. 15, followed by 
Brad Paisley on Sunday, Oct. 17. 

The free evening concerts are funded by part of the $15 million that BP PLC gave to Alabama to help promote tourism and offset the summer season-wrecking Gulf oil spill.

"It’s been phenomenal and overwhelming," said Sarah Kuzma of Meyer Real Estate in Gulf Shores. "The locals are renting like crazy. This is a shot-in-the-arm for a weekend in October that is not typically booked."
