In January, Jon Bon Jovi announced on Facebook Live an exciting opening act contest to give bands the chance to open an arena date on Bon Jovi’s This House Is Not For Sale Tour. To enter the competition, thousands of bands uploaded audition videos at BonJovi.com or the Bon Jovi and Live Nation Facebook pages. To pick the winner for each tour date, Live Nation chose 10 finalists and Bon Jovi management selected the contest winner from the shortlist.

THIRD ROUND WINNERS
March 1 – San Jose, CA
“The band would like to thank Bon Jovi, Live Nation and most of all the artists, musicians, and fans that support the local arts and music communities here in the Bay Area,” said Thadeus Gonzalez. “We can’t wait to bring our brand of rock & roll to the SAP Center in San Jose.”
March 4 – Phoenix, AZ
“Music has always been a way for us to communicate beyond words,” said LUXXE. “We are immensely grateful for the opportunity to be heard, and to listen and learn from each other. Excited to be able to share this experience and thank you again for the chance! Cheers!”
March 5 – San Diego, CA
“Bon Jovi has been an inspiration to this band from its inception. It is more than an honor to get to share the stage with them. It will be an unforgettable night for us and we cannot thank Bon Jovi enough for this incredible opportunity.”
March 8 – Los Angeles, CA
“For us, this is the top of the mountain. No other band on earth has inspired us more than Bon Jovi. My first concert was Bon Jovi’s ‘Keep The Faith Tour.’ I was 9 years old and it changed my life. To be asked to share the stage with Jon and the boys at the Forum is absolutely surreal,” said drummer Andrew Koussevitzky. “As excited as we are, we plan on taking this gig extremely seriously and hope to deliver Los Angeles one of the greatest nights of rock it’s ever seen. We’re excited. We’re humbled. More than anything, we are ready to rock the Forum with Bon Jovi and give Los Angeles a night of rock music to remember.”
