The Bon Jovi Experience, the only tribute act to be endorsed by Jon Bon Jovi himself, will bring their tour to Morecambe on Saturday (August 17.)

The band are considered to be the world’s first and finest tribute to Bon Jovi and they are the only tribute to have been requested by and to have performed live on stage with Jon Bon Jovi himself.

Formed in 1994, the band started out as a group of friends from Crewe, Nantwich and Dudley playing as By Jovi.

Starting in small pubs, they worked through various challenges such as changes of band members as well as a switch of name to the Bon Jovi Experience.

2006 brought the band their big break and announced them to a much wider audience.

At London’s Hard Rock Café, Jon Bon Jovi himself asked the band personally to appear at the official Bon Jovi fan club event during his induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

During the evening Jon Bon Jovi requested to join The Bon Jovi Experience live on stage and performed “Who Says Ya Can’t Go Home” alongside frontman Tony Pearce to a sell-out crowd.

The event further enhanced The Bon Jovi Experience’s profile as they remain to this day the only tribute act to have performed alongside Jon Bon Jovi himself.

The show at The Platform will be a standing performance (with limited seating) and starts at 8pm on Saturday August 17.

Tickets are priced at £20 and are available from Lancaster and Morecambe Visitor Information Centres, online at www.lancaster.gov.uk/platform or by calling the box office on 01524 582803.
