More times than not, headlining acts are not overly supportive of their opening acts. But Jon Bon Jovi went above and beyond to support an opening act on the Bon Jovi tour last week in Dallas.
The Texas trio, Contagious, are high school sophomores so Jon wrote a note to their school asking that they be excused in order to be able to perform.
It said, "To whom it may concern, Please excuse the members of The Contagious (Mac Johnson, Cayden Diebold and Jake Douglas) for being absent from school on Monday, March 26th, 2018. They were busy being my opening act -- and kicking butt -- in Dallas, Texas at American Airline Center. Sincerely, Jon Bon Jovi"
Jon is not the first New Jersey singer to do such a thing. In 2016, Bruce Springsteensigned a note written by a young fan's father explaining why his son would be late for school the day after a Bruce concert. Later that year, Bruce signed off on a letter written by a parent who took his son to a Springsteen book signing.
Kevin in the Morning!
