And You're to Blame

Have you always wanted to see Bon Jovi in concert but just haven’t been able to make the time in the past, oh, 20 years? Or have you already seen Bon Jovi and loved the experience so much that you want to be able to relive it over and over? Chances are you fall into one of those two camps, and as a result, consider this a PSA to you, lovely Chicagoist readers: THE BON JOVI CONCERT MOVIE COMES OUT NEXT WEEK!

Yes, a new CD, DVD, and world tour were not quite enough for this super group that for reasons unknown to us has maintained a strong fan base since we were in elementary school. No, the band also felt it necessary to launch a “concert event” to further affirm the band’s grasp on, um, whoever still listens to Bon Jovi.

You, too, can take part in this curious event next week when Lost Highway (not to be confused with the David Lynch film of the same name … although we hope some people do make that mistake when they’re purchasing tickets) is released.

PS: If you can't wait until Tuesday, download the Bon Jovi widget and let Jon and the crew make sweet love to your eyes and ears 24/7.

Lost Highway by Bon Jovi plays at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 6, at Village Crossing 18 in Skokie.
