THE only Bon Jovi cover band in the world to have shared a stage with Jon Bon Jovi is playing at the Spa Theatre on Friday.

“Fans will have thought there were two Bon Jovis on stage that night, so much does lead singer Tony Pearce resemble Jon Bon Jovi”, says a spokesman.

Recreating Bon Jovi in concert, the Bon Jovi Experience perform all the band’s hits including Livin’ on a Prayer, Keep the Faith, Bad Medicine and You Give Love a Bad Name.

Formed in 1983, Bon Jovi is a US rock band from New Jersey, fronted by lead singer and namesake Jon Bon Jovi.

The band have sold 120 million albums worldwide and performed 2,600 concerts in 50 countries for 34 million fans.

In 2006 Bon Jovi were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame, and in 2004 they were ranked number 14 in Q magazine’s 50 greatest bands of all time.

Friday’s show is due to begin at 7.30pm.
