Jon Bon Jovi: Living on a Prayer, Limping on a Stage

by at . Comments

When the union went on strike, did Tommy give up?

When tips at the diner were sparse, did Gina throw in her apron?

No and no. Therefore, legendary rocker Jon Bon Jovi - inspired by the characters he created for the iconic single "Livin on a Prayer" - continued with his concert in New Jersey over the weekend, despite a serious leg injury sustained during the set.

Said a spokesperson afterward: "Jon Bon Jovi sustained a torn calf muscle. [He] made light of the injury and went on to close the show... The band ended the night together, thanking the capacity hometown crowd, and assisting Jon off the stage."

The development won't stop Bon Jovi from playing every stop of its tour this summer. Watch the injured lead singer in action below:
