On playing shows with Bon Jovi front man Jon Forman said, “I remember hearing ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ at my elementary school Summer camp. One of the other kids played it to me from a mix that he had made. I remember thinking, ‘This is probably the best air-guitar song that has ever been written.’ Pretty sure I’m still right about that one. What a crazy dream to open for Bon Jovi in European football stadiums – we are so excited! After our set when Bon Jovi takes the stage, I’ll be the one side stage playing the air-guitar like I’m eleven again.”
