Bon Jovi Plane Mishap Can't Spoil 'Nice Day'

Published: 2006-01-23
The boys from Bon Jovi and their tour staff had a bit of a rocky start in Canada when their plane touched down at Hamilton International Airport on January 21st.

The band's Boeing 707 was flying from Buffalo to Hamilton when it skidded off the runway after the plane overshot the landing strip while travelling in Saturday's bad weather. All 14 passengers on the aircraft escaped unscathed. The band is currently touring behind its 2005 release, Have a Nice Day.

Bon Jovi shot to fame in the 1980s with its breakthrough album, Slippery When Wet. The boys' "hair metal" style made them popular with the ladies, but it was tunes like "Bad Medicine." "You Give Love a Bad Name," and "Livin' on a Prayer" that made them rock stars.

Despite the accident, the show that same night at the Air Canada Centre went on, and the band's upcoming sold-out shows in Toronto on January 23 and 24 are still a go. Then the band will head down to St. Paul, Minnesota, Friday and then to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Saturday before return to the ACC for a fourth sold-out show on January 30th.

The Bon Jovi boys will be touring North America until March, when they will take a short break before heading to Europe in May to continue their Have a Nice Day tour.
