BON JOVI THWARTED BY BLIZZARD

Bon Jovi
Bon Jovi have had to postpone the very first show of the 'Because We Can' tour because they can't. The tour was due to kick off at the Mohegan Sun resort casino in southeast Connecticut on Saturday night but the blizzard in the area made it impossible for fans to get to the venue.

The Governor of Connecticut declared a state of emergency as the region was covered with 3 feet of snow. The Bon Jovi Connecticut show has been rescheduled for the warmer date of October 25. The first show of the tour will now be Sunday night in Washington, DC.

Meanwhile, Jon Bon Jovi worries young people aren't 'paying attention' to music.Despite the wealth of new artists, the 50-year-old worries people are no longer as interested in good songs. 'The young boy band thing has its place,' he told British magazine Star. 'But you can't compare One Direction to the likes of Adele or Mumford & Sons. Their talent is invigorating. I'm glad to see talent continuing because I worry this generation isn't paying that much attention to music.'

These days, many artists find their way into the spotlight thanks to talent shows such as The X Factor and The Voice. Jon isn't sure his band Bon Jovi would have succeeded under these circumstances: 'No, I had 21 years to write my first record,' he explained. 'It's hard because they're thrust into a huge spotlight and they're expected to have a record on a par with the greats six weeks later.'

Personal relationships can also be challenging when living the life of the rich and famous. The star married his high school sweetheart Dorothea Hurley in 1989 and believes he just has good fortune when it comes to love: 'I just got very lucky,' he smiled.
