The stage is set for New Jersey band Bon Jovi to perform in front of thousands of fans at Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta on Friday.

Concert promoter Live Nation Indonesia has confirmed that the show is going to be big.

"We have prepared 40,000 tickets and they're sold out. There will be no tickets being sold at the venue; people will have to bring the printout of the ticket that we sent through email," said Live Nation Indonesia managing director Kimberley Frasser as quoted by on Thursday.

The Jakarta Police will allocate 3,300 personnel to guard the concert. With the concert scheduled to start at 8 p.m., the gates to the venue will open five hours before.

The police plan on using metal detectors and organising the traffic flow to avoid major traffic jams around the venue.

Bon Jovi arrived in Jakarta on Thursday according to their official Twitter account @BonJovi, with a post of a picture of vocalist Jon Bon Jovi and keyboardist David Bryan posing with an ondel-ondel [traditional Betawi effigy].
