|Bon Jovi to perform at Cheyenne Frontier Days
CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Bon Jovi, which has recently delved into the country genre, will perform at this summer’s Cheyenne Frontier Days.
Bon Jovi will perform July 20, the first night act at the 10-day Western celebration and rodeo, also known as the Daddy of ’em All.
Bon Jovi recently topped the U.S. country music charts with “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” a duet lead singer Jon Bon Jovi performs with Jennifer Nettles. The song won the 2007 Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocal.
“We’re very excited,” CFD contract arts chairman Joe Lopez said. “When we first addressed Bon Jovi, he said he wasn’t going to tour.”
In addition to Bon Jovi, Lopez announced Friday that rock band Def Leppard will also perform at Frontier Days on July 28.
This year’s Frontier Days concert lineup introduces more rock music to a traditionally Western event, but Lopez said that is good business.
