Jon Bon Jovi acoustic concert, 1997

Posted on December 14, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi played an hourlong acoustic set on July 29, 1997, at the studios of Lexington radio station WLKT-FM, better known as 104.5 — The Cat. The founder and frontman of the rock band Bon Jovi, which recently led the 2018 class of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction announcement, was in town for a special acoustic show that was broadcast live on the station promoting his new album, “Destination Anywhere.” The radio station gave away passes for 48 fans to sit in on the hourlong session. The New Jersey native wore dark glasses until he was asked when he was going to take them off. He was also asked “boxers or briefs?” The answer was “I’m a briefs man.” Lexington was the second of three stops on his acoustic tour that day. He also played Louisville and Milwaukee.
