Jon Bon Jovi & Mr. Will-W.
The Pride of New Jersey, Bon Jovi, have officially arrived in Toronto for the second leg of their The Circle Tour - now known as Bon Jovi Live. The Tour which saw them at Rogers Centre just last July, was listed by Billboard Magazine as the most profitable tour of 2010. The Tour is now in support of their Greatest Hits set released last October, which went on to reach number one in Canada and number five in the U.S.  To date, Bon Jovi have sold over 130 million albums worldwide.

The Band flew in this afternoon with Lead Vocalist Jon Bon Jovi and Keyboardist Dave Bryan heading out with their Entourage in Yorkville for Dinner at Ciao Wine Bar. Other band members chose to remain low key. 

Despite being a bit of a Joker, Jon stopped and posed for Photos and signed some Autographs for Fans. "You bunch of Lowlifes! I don't want to see you the rest of this week! Now go on and make lots of money of these...." he kidded, as he finished a round of Signatures. Despite the crass sense of humour, Jon was kind and more than obliging to Fan requests.

I am thrilled to have gotten a chance to meet Jon and Dave, having been a Kid who was obsessed with Bon Jovi. Despite not having many Grammys to their name, the fact that they are still filling Arenas is a true testament of their legacy and impact even to this day.

Check out this Video I got of Jon interacting below:

Bon Jovi Live plays at Air Canada Centre tomorrow night, Valentine's Day and also the following night. Tickets still are available here!

Look below for more Photos I got of Jon:
