Bon Jovi Autographed Poster Giveaway


My husband and I don’t have one of those agreements that states should either party have an opportunity to have sexual relations with a famous person, these are the three people, AND THE ONLY THREE PEOPLE ON EARTH, we are permitted to … well … do.

This post is already fun!

I’ve never really thought about it, but now that I’m sitting here doing nothing but thinking about it, I’d have to say for certain my list would look like this, in no particular order of desirableness to … well … do.

  1. Adam Levine, of course. 
  2. Ryan Gosling, of course.
  3. One Direction.

HAHAHAH! You should see the look on your face.

Actually, my last pick? Easily Jon Bon Jovi.

Not Jon Bon Jovi back in the 80s:


No. No to the frizzed out hair. No to the eyeliner. No to the “come do me” look. Which isn’t it ironic that he’s BEGGING me to go and have sex with him and “lay my hands on him” and I’m like, “Um. EW?”

No, I never really loved Jon Bon Jovi until he became this:

good bon jovi

And then I was like, “I will lay my hands on you in a blaze of glory on a bed of roses, HOT STUFF.”

When he became THIS, I took notice and started buying his CDs and listening to them nonstop.

It was then that I loved him. Every song. Every note. Every “lay your hands on me” look. Maybe I was too young in the 80s to appreciate the hair and the tight jeans and the yell-iness. I preferred the smooth locks and faint wrinkles and deep soul that came with maturity. That’s when he became … well … doable.


I was contacted by AEG telling me that in honor of the Bon Jovi: Because We Can concert happening at the CONSOL tomorrow, Thursday, they’d like to offer my readers a gift. And boy, if you’re a Bon Jovi fan, this is a fantastic gift.

What: The entire Bon Jovi band, including Jon, will autograph two of these tour posters in silver or gold Sharpie and two lucky readers will be chosen at random to receive them.


AEG will mail the posters to the winners.

Concert info: If you’re wanting to see Jon’s “come lay your hands on me” face in person, you’ll want to get your tickets through Ticketmaster via this link.  The concert is tomorrow at CONSOL Energy Center. The show begins at 7:30 p.m.  

How to enter: Well, you can just shout out your favorite Bon Jovi Song, or you can be brave and tell me the three people that are on YOUR list. Or do both.  You have until noon tomorrow to enter, at which time will pick the two lucky winners. Imagine one of these autographed posters framed and hanging in your office or man-cave!

Go enter and good luck.

Fine print that’s the same size as all the other print: In exchange for posting this, AEG has provided me with two tickets to this concert. I was going to give them away to one of you, because I feel super awkward at concerts, but my husband indicated that it would be solid grounds for divorce. SORRY! Also, I’m pretty sure this is what I look like during rock concerts:

    1) Emmy Rossum
    2) Zoey Deschanel
    3) Cobie Smulders

    But, if I fourth happened to creep in, this list isn’t legally binding, is it??

    And during that *ahem* congress of any of the above, playing in the background (at least once) would have to be “Lay Your Hands On Me”

    My favorite Bon Jovi song was always Never Say Goodbye until I realized that singing “This Ain’t a Love Song” to my 3 month old shushes him up immediately :)

    My 3 would be

    1) Kris Letang
    2) Jon Bon Jovi
    3) Sean Ferris

  32. Patrick

    Favorite song: I’ll Be There For You

    My doable list (in no particular order):
    Maksim Chmerkovskiy
    Adam Levine
    And someone too local for my husband to agree too, so technically not doable, but totally at the top of my list.

  34. Jenn
    February 21, 2013 9:18 am

    1. James Marsters
    2. Tabrett Bethell
    3. Nick Cave

    Awwww, yeah. Also, my inner middle schooler is really pushing for “It’s My Life” as the favored tune. Haters can form a line to the left. :)

  35. Dan
    February 21, 2013 9:42 am

    Virginia, all I can possibly say is congratulations first of all to you on this great honor of having AEG contact you and allow you this opportunity to choose two people to each win one of these signed posters and giving you tickets to the show. Bon Jovi has written the soundtrack to my life. I’ve traveled the road going all the way back to the Runaway days to present. I’ve lost track of the number of concerts I’ve attended, but one thing is for sure I was never left disappointed.

  38. Lisa
    February 21, 2013 10:27 am

    1.) Justin Timberlake
    2.) Channing Tatum
    3.) Bradley Cooper

    My one girlfriend and I also seem to have a weird thing for Justin Bieber, making us cougars!

    I don’t know if I have a favorite Bon Jovi song, BUT my 76 year old grandmother LOVES HIM. 2 years ago she got Bon Jovi concert tickets for Christmas along with a lighter and some bail money (just in case). We also taught her to fist pump for Livin’ On a Prayer and I see her commemorative Bon Jovi Concert Key chair every time she has me move her car. So if I won. I’d give it to her.

    Also my 3 would be ( in no order)
    Bradley James (Arthur in BBC’s Merlin)
    Sean Biggerstaff (Oliver Wood in Harry Potter)
    James Marsden
