Bon Jovi performed a free concert for snowed-in fans after last night’s world tour kick-off show in Uncasville, Connecticut was postponed due to a blizzard.
According to an article posted today at www.norwichbulletin.com, the New Jersey rock icons staged an impromptu show for about two thousand snowed-in fans, patrons and employees after their scheduled concert at Uncasville’s Mohegan Sun Arena was postponed, following a state of emergency declaration by Connecticut's governor.
Posting to their official website, the “Livin’ on a Prayer” hitmakers announced the postponed Uncasville show will be reschedule for Oct. 25 and explained that the free gig was staged because, “(Bon Jovi) recognizes how much preparation it takes for fans to attend a concert."
The concert at the casino in southeastern Connecticut was supposed to launch their Because We Can world tour in support of their upcoming studio album “What About Now,” which is scheduled to hit shelves in Canada and the U.S. on March 12.
The band’s Canadian tour leg kicks off on Feb. 13 in Montreal, QC at Bell Centre and finishes up on April 5 in Winnipeg, MB at MTS Centre.
