THE Bon Jovi Experience, a tribute band that’s rated by Jon Bon Jovi himself, will be rocking Evesham Arts Centre, early next month.

Bon Jovi is on record saying that they are “the best tribute I’ve ever seen”.

While DJ Chris Evans said: “They are just fantastic!”

A spokesman said: “Iconic 1980s band Bon Jovi had platinum selling albums and anthemic single hits around the world. The Bon Jovi Experience are the word’s first and finest tribute - and the fact that they have performed live with Jon Bon Jovi himself and are featured on the official Bon Jovi website tells you all you need to know.

“This five-piece band power their way through two hours of rocking tunes giving one hundred per cent. Front man Tony Pearce bears an uncanny resemblance to Jon Bon Jovi and his soaring vocals compliment the tight musicianship of the band. Audiences can rock ‘til they drop.”

The Bon Jovi Experience features Jon Bon Jovi clone frontman Tony (Jon) - and the great musicians accompanying him are also top look-alikes: Ed (Richie Sambora) – Guitars, Jon (Tico Torres) – Drums, Steve (Hugh McDonald) – Bass and Steve (Dave Bryan) – Keyboards. The spokesman added: “Individually and as a band they produce the looks and sounds of the real thing.

“Tony has been performing the music of Bon Jovi for nearly 20 years now and the band were the first to be asked to perform on the US New Jersey tribute album, “Garden State of Mind”. He is the only UK Bon Jovi tribute band frontman to actually be asked to appear on Channel 4’s Big Breakfast show with the real Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora.”

Evesham Arts Centre will start to rock at 7:30pm on Saturday June 2. Tickets are on sale now from Evesham Almonry (Abbey Road WR11 4BQ), from 01386 446944 and from
