Malaysians Rock...

Jon Bon Jovi: “Malaysians know how to rock!”

KUALA LUMPUR: More than a month ago, rock singer Jon Bon Jovi performed a cover of Teresa Teng's classic Mandarin hit Tian Mi Mi, and the video of his performance went viral on social media. 

Unfortunately, it isn't one of the songs the American legendary band would be performing at its upcoming concert here on Saturday at Stadium Merdeka. 

"Not a chance. That was one time. One line at a time," the singer said with an embarrassed smile when met at the concert's press conference at Shangri-La Hotel here yesterday. "I'm like a parrot. You can teach me, but you got to teach me slowly." 

It was his sister-in-law, Nina Yang Bongiovi, who suggested to make the cover. 

"I did my best. I was intimidated at first, because it's a language I don't speak. "I told her I would but only if she taught me how." 

At the concert, the band will be performing both old and new songs from its body of work that covers 32 years of its career. 

"Some of the songs were written way before some of you were even born. Others are current, like from our latest album Burning Bridges, which is like a fan record we put out for the series of concerts we're doing now," Jon said. 

The group last performed here 20 years ago in 1995, to a crowd who knew how to rock. Drummer Tico Torres said: "Like at every concert, we expect you to sing along with us, because we appreciate audience's participation." 

"Sorry it took us 20 years to come back, but we're here now. We appreciate all of your love and support. We look forward to a great night. "We're also glad that the rain came and cleared the skies. I heard that the air quality here wasn't very good," he added. 

He added that Bon Jovi has a catalogue of music that generations are familiar with. The band has held several concerts as part of this tour prior to coming to Malaysia. 

"So far the reception has been great, and things keep getting better every day," Jon said. 

Bon Jovi Live in Kuala Lumpur 2015 is organised by IMC Live.

I am and always have been a Bon Jovi fan. This blog is just my obsession taken a step further, my imagination in high gear if you will. I love to read and decided to see what would happen when I took that love of the written word and ramped it up a bit.
