Official press release:

US rock band BON JOVI and Jimmy Barnes have accepted the invitation from Universal Music Managing Director Paul Krige and promoter Michael Chugg to perform in Australia as part of The Universal Appeal at Colonial Stadium in Melbourne on March 24.

"We are extremely fortunate that Bon Jovi have accepted our invitation to come to Australia for this event. The Universal Appeal aims to collect monies for the families recently devastated by floods in rural Australia. It is a credit to everyone on the bill that Bon Jovi will donate their time for this cause."

"We have not been to Australia for 6 years and are coming this time to Rock Melbourne and Roll in the money for these great charities," Jon Bon Jovi said on the confirmation of the show.

The band will fly into Australia as part of their world tour to perform this one-off-event in Melbourne. The concert will raise money for The State Emergency Services who assist victims of Flood, Fire and Drought that constantly ravage the rural areas of Australia.

Promoter Michael Chugg said today, "This is a typically generous gesture by these major artists who have always been very supportive of charities." Bon Jovi are known supporters of the Special Olympics, as well as
performing Christmas Benefit concerts in their hometown New Jersey to support local charities.
