Celebrated New Jersey rockers Bon Jovi, with actor and heartthrob frontman Jon Bon Jovi, brought their “Because We Can” tour to MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night, and contributing photographer Tom Donoghue was onsite for this photo gallery.
We didn’t send a reviewer, so, in this case, the pictures will speak our thousand words. Bon Jovi performed during Night 1 of the 2012 iHeartRadio Music Festival at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sept. 21, 2011, the same night singer and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day had his onstage meltdown and dissed Usher and Justin Bieber.
Bon Jovi didn’t diss anyone Saturday night, as far as we know. Because they don’t give love a bad name.
