Bon Jovi revealed on Tuesday that they are holding a contest to choose bands or singers to open for their upcoming tour. “Every great band starts small and builds their rep one show at a time,“ Jon Bon Jovi said in a statement on the band’s website. “That’s the opportunity we were given, and now we want to pay it forward.” Billboard reports that the band is asking artists to upload videos of themselves performing original music; concert promoters Live Nation will select 10 finalists and Bon Jovi will then pick the winners. Those selected will perform 20-minute sets on select dates of the band’s upcoming This House Is Not for Sale tour.
