Bon Jovi Reschedules MSG Leg Of ‘Bon Jovi: The House Is Not For Sale’ Performances Due To Bronchitis
Bon Jovi will not be able to make it to Madison Square Garden this weekend because of bronchitis. The frontman has been suffering from bronchitis since last week and his doctors advise him against pushing through his two-day "Bon Jovi: This House Is Not for Sale" concert tour stop in New York. Organizers of the event have announced that the performances will be rescheduled for next week.
Spokesperson for the band announced that Bon Jovi will be rescheduling his Madison Square Garden stop for next week. The spokesman said that it was a difficult decision to make, Billboard reported, but it was necessary so that Bon Jovi could deliver the amazing performance he is known for.
Friday's performance will be moved to April 13. Saturday's show will be on April 15. Bon Jovi fans were also told to check the Madison Square Garden website and LiveNation.com for more information about the rescheduled shows, WZLX reported.
Bon Jovi has been sick with bronchitis for a week now and he may not be able to provide the same kind of show-stopping performances that he has done before if he does not rest. His previous stop was at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, April 5 Wednesday where the show was also cut short because of his illness. It was said that the singer wanted to power through the night so as not to disappoint his fans but his condition may have overcome him towards the end of the evening.
Bon Jovi told the crowd at Pittsburgh that he had been with the cold since April 1 which worsened after being soaked in the rain in Philadelphia the other night. The band had to stop their usual two and a half-hour long show but Bon Jovi was able to sing crowd favorites like "Keep the Faith," "Living' on a Prayer" and "Wanted Dead or Alive."
