Bon Jovi rocks MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas March 19, 2011 (photos) -- The band Bon Jovi, still as popular with this generation's rockers as it is with their parents, rocked the MGM Grand Garden Arena Saturday night in Las Vegas. The Arena has a seating capacity of nearly 17,000.
The band is currently on its Live 2011 Tour, heading next to Salt Lake City Utah; Vancouver, British Columbia; then down to New Orleans in late April with several more dates after that.
Known for such hits as "It's My Life," "Livin' on a Prayer," "You Give Love a Bad Name," "Wanted Dead or Alive," and "Blaze of Glory," Bon Jovi was established in the early 1980s and recently became eligible for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Though the band was nominated in late 2010, it has yet to receive the honor.
The band began 28 years ago, but Bon Jovi has stayed popular with younger audiences partly through its participation on the Rock Band video games as well as the success of its concert tours. Just this week, rocker contestant on the popular TV show American Idol, James Durbin, covered a Bon Jovi song, "I'll Be There for You." James Durbin is 22; the song came out the year he was born.
