Nowadays I’d rather see these guys than the real Bon Jovi.

Here’s a clip of the band with Jon on stage with them;

And here's a 2016 Prayer performance by them:

Uncanny - the singer really is more like Jon than Jon himself. "Richie" and especially "Hugh" look like total doppelgangers as well!

TBJE did give me a rather eary feeling!

The Metallica tribute band I saw in 2012, "Mentallica", didn't creep me out so much.

I'll never forget being at the Manchester show in 2011 and in GC, that fella from BJE was walking around wearing ****ing sunglasses and doing the cheesy JBJ smile when people asked for selfies! It was pissing down rain but he had sunglasses on He was proper loving the attention, though. Fair enough I guess.

Pretty sure it was the same in Milton Keynes 2006. I remember seeing photos from the pit with someone looking like Jon (even the same shirt as the original wore) and sneaking onto like every second picture.

I don’t know about other people’s opinion, but personally I think that sounds pretty twisted and arrogant. The guy can obviously impersonate JBJ as well as anyone, but for f*ck’s sake, cut the act and leave the character on stage...

This guy does a GREAT 2008-esque Jon in terms of look and mannerisms, and the band are very tight. However, as far as the vocals go, for the most part I think he'd be better off doing the current JBJ...

Hahaha, the audience shots are terrific. Playing to one quarter of an old folks home.

Btw, I just watched a Bon Jovi Forever gig and am not impressed. The drummer is all over the place (pushing the tempo all the time) and the singer/frontman reminds me more of Sammy Hagar than Jon. Also, what's Rob Halford doing as the bass player?

The guitar player really looks like Richie, though, and plays well - props to him
