“I had tickets to see them in Edinburgh last year, but I broke my foot and couldn’t go,” said the 34-year-old carer, from Monkwearmouth.
“I was devastated because I’m a huge fan.
“I’m so excited he’s coming here.
“I feel like I haven’t eaten for a week.”
Anna’s friend Amy Hughes, of Ford Estate, will join her.
“I’m very excited because it’s going to my first concert,” said the 15-year-old, who was with mum Susan, 51.
“I’ve always loved Bon Jovi.”
