‘The Bon Jovi Story’, coming to Drogheda at the weekend, is a show detailing the band’s history from their breakthrough ‘Slippery When Wet’ album up to their present day inclusion into Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame with video montages, set and costume changes and live music.

The Bon Jovi Story is a high-energy show, with powerful musical performances that get audience goers up off their seats, singing along to hits like ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’, ‘Bad Medicine’, ‘Bed of Roses’ and many more.
