“Little did we know at the time that there would be global enthusiasm for these concert experiences! We can’t wait to bring fans all over the world Bon Jovi like they’ve never seen ’em before for this one-night-only event. Grab some friends and get some popcorn because it’s going to be a great time!”

Kymberli Frueh, SVP of Content Acquisitions at Trafalgar Releasing, added: “Bon Jovi has always been supportive of reaching fans through event cinema since the early 2000’s.

“With most concert tours still halted, and fans missing live concerts, we are thrilled that Bon Jovi fans will have an opportunity to come together and share this experience as a community in their local cinemas across the globe.”

The Encore Nights saw bands performing a series of safe drive-in shows at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, with Metallica, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani and Kane Brown among the other acts to have performed.
