In 1995 I was in France on a school trip and I stayed with a girl who just happened to be the biggest Bon Jovi fanatic that I had met to date. Posters, t-shirts, branded novelty items, and busting out random lyrics at any time of day.
Ten years later, I met a remarkable woman (who would become my sister in law) and I think her Bon Jovi fandom rivaled that of my French friend (minus the lyrics and novelty items). It was in these moments that realized the timeless draw of this group and its dedicated global fan-base.
Bon Jovi will be coming to Rogers Arena for two shows this spring (March 25 and 26) and tickets are currently on sale.
I also have a pair of tickets to give away, here’s how you can enter to win:
I will draw one winner at random from all contest entries at 9:00am this Friday March 11, 2011. The winner will attend the show March 26, 2011.
Update The winner is Caroline (@carolinecalvert) – congratulations!
Update Caroline sent me some photos from the Bon Jovi concert.
It’s always nice to hear back from contest winners when they have enjoyed their prizes and I’m glad Caroline had such a good time.
