Bon Jovi fans have the chance to star in the rock group's upcoming tour - including a date in the Midlands.

Bon Jovi

The group will close their headline UK tour at Coventry's Ricoh Arena on June 23, and fans of the band can submit their memories of the rockers for a chance to appear on the big screens during the show.

Submit your Bon Jovi memories using the hashtag #BonJoviMemories on social media to take part. Your profile must be set to public.

If you're going to a specific date, you can also include the hashtag #CityBonJovi - for example, #CoventryBonJovi - to increase your chances of appearing.

A statement from the band includes ideas for posts, including: Why you're 'the biggest Bon Jovi fan on the planet', how/why you became a Bon Jovi fan, the story of your favourite Bon Jovi memory, multiple generations of Bon Jovi fans, photos of you at a Bon Jovi concert, and what This House Is Not For Sale means to you.

Submissions will also be shared on the band's social media accounts and website.

Videos and photos will both be accepted.

Talking ahead of the shows, 56-year-old vocalist Jon Bon Jovi said: “Those huge shows, tens of thousands of people all together as one, that’s what we do".


Formed in 1983, Bon Jovi has released 13 studio albums, six compilations and three live albums.

The group was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2006, and into the US Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame this year.

They are best known for a variety of hit songs, such as Wanted Dead or Alive, Always, Bed of Roses, You Give Love a Bad Name, Livin' on a Prayer and It's My Life.
