Is 6 yrs old to young for a Bon Jovi concert?

My sister is taking my 6 yr old nephew to a Bon Jovi concert. i think he's to young to go. He will probably drive other people nuts, and I think it's tooooo loud for him. Just wondering what you people think?
The kid runs around sining "you give love a bad name"... poor kid.. he needs to listen to some Iron Maiden!!

I say yes. Bad for their hearing, and you do not want them to end up like this.

Personally I think it is way too young but I've seen younger kids at worse concerts... Never understood the parents who bring their kids to metal shows.

Too Young and to top it off one might be too 'into' the show to keep a good enough eye on him. Bon Jovi concerts are not packed with the most upstanding citizens... Too many chances for something bad to happen especially w/ a little one.

They are fools. Plain and simple. They put their own desires over what is best for the child.

As a person who suffers from PERMANANT hearing loss, yes 6 is too young.

Outdoor festivals, okay, thats cool, the kids can run around and you don't have to sit too close. Indoor show? Forget it. Not cool.

I had to wait until I was 13 to go to any concerts - (2) weeks after my 13th B-Day, I rocked it with The Kinks "Give The People What They Want" tour - And I turned out to be a pretty fucked up kid so if I had started earlier, I would prolly be in prison now

I think I was 14 at my first real concert, of course that was Ozzy and we were high as hell.

Yeah, 6 is too damn young for hearing loss to start. Let him wait until he's old enough to decide if he wants to subject himself to that.
