The world’s first and finest Bon Jovi tribute is coming to put on a show in Barking.

The Bon Jovi Experience, who have been touring for more than 20 years, will be playing all of the American rock bands biggest hits at the Broadway Theatre on Friday evening.

The band have even played alongside the group that have sold more than 130 million records worldwide and have a place in the UK Music Hall of Fame.

“The best memory is performing with the man himself,” said lead singer Tony Pearce.

“When we did the show with Jon Bon Jovi it was like being in a dream and he was very generous with his time.”

Playing hits like Livin On A Prayer, You Give Love A Bad Name, It’s My Life, Wanted Dead Or Alive and Bad Medicine to name a handful.

“Favourite part of show is the climax as you see everyone totally getting into the spirit and letting their feelings flow,” he admitted.

The band have been travelling up and down the UK for the last 20 years and have never had any plans on stopping since they first started.

“The band started as we were all pals and used to meet in the local pub,” he said.

Tony and the rest of the group are currently touring the country throughout the summer, going to places like Dorset, Skegness and Belfast to name a few destinations.

The Bon Jovi Experience starts at 7.30pm and runs until 10pm on the night.

Tickets cost £16.50 to £17.50 - visit to book your seats.
