Bon Jovi is giving local bands across the United States a unique opportunity to open for the band during their upcoming 2017 "This House Is Not For Sale" tour by entering an awesome new contest.
How your band could open for Bon Jovi
For those musically inclined, JBJ justed announced on Facebook Live that he is looking to give the opportunity to bands looking for a big break in show business to be heard. For millions of those would-be rock stars, here is your chance at what could potentially be the big break you have been waiting for.
The rules are simple enough, just get your band together and record a video jamming to your best original song and upload it on the band's official site. Ten finalists will be selected by Live Nation from all the best original entries, so give it your best shot! Not only will you have the opportunity to win the chance to open for the band, you will receive some major exposure. The videos will all be displayed on a live gallery for all interested eyes to view, and the five winners will be chosen by Bon Jovi management to be the opening act for five of the tour's biggest stops throughout the nation (according to a Live Nation statement).
Bon Jovi continues to give back
During a Facebook Live Q&A, the frontmant stated, "Every great band starts small and builds their rep one show at a time. That's the opportunity we were given and now we want to pay it forward. If you're ready for that arena stage, submit your audition tapes and join us in playing for the best audiences in rock #Music."
For the March 5th show in San Diego, the winner will be announced on February 8th. That is coming up fast, so all interested parties should get to work on that video ASAP.
This is just another cool concept developed by Jon, who is greatly known for his huge heart and willingness to give back to his fans and the communities that have loved and faithfully followed Bon Jovi for more than three decades. The guys officially kick off the 2017 #THINFS tour on February 8th in Greenville, South Carolina. For a complete list of tour dates and ticket sales, visit the band's official website.
