Jon Bon Jovi: Playing On a Prayer? Injured While On Stage
At 48, Jon Bon Jovi may not be the long-haired buck he was during Bon Jovi‘s heyday, but don’t start calling the rocker an old man just quite yet. Despite a leg injury while performing in the band’s native New Jersey, the singer continued the set until the very end.
The rocker’s spokesperson said of the his injury:
Jon Bon Jovi sustained a torn calf muscle. Jon made light of the injury and went on to close the show with their hit, ‘Living On a Prayer.’ The band ended the night together, thanking the capacity hometown crowd, and assisting Jon off the stage.
A torn calf muscle? OUCH! And, despite the pain, Bon Jovi only took the next day off, and was back on stage two days later. So if you have tickets for a Bon Jovi show, worry not. His rep said the band is still on schedule for all upcoming stadium dates this summer.
