Jon Bon Jovi goes undercover for Omaze campaign

Rock icon and Chairman of the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, Jon Bon Jovi has announced a once-in-a-lifetime chance for fans to earn “band member status” at an upcoming show through a charitable partnership with Omaze. Launching a viral video that gave unsuspecting karaoke singers the surprise of their lives, Omaze is helping fans around the world make donations to the JBJ Soul Foundation and be entered to win a true rock star experience.

One winner and a guest will be flown to an upcoming tour stop and get to have dinner with the band, stay at the same hotel, attend (and sing with Jon!) at a sound check, get VIP seating for the show, and attend the after-party.

The chance to win is available to all those who donate even $10 to the JBJ Soul Foundation, a nonprofit that works to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness. The organization has created a number of programs that provide food and affordable housing while supporting social services and job training programs.

The campaign was kicks off today (Oct 5th) with a viral video of one of the world’s biggest, most recognizable rock stars going deep undercover to surprise unsuspecting karaoke singers as they rock out to Bon Jovi arsenal of hits.

“Jon Bon Jovi is one of rock music’s all-time greats,” says Ryan Cummins, Omaze Co-founder and Co-CEO. “This campaign is a testament to Jon’s commitment to his fans, and to giving those in need a hand up. We’re so excited to offer fans the chance to live out a true rock experience, all in support of the Soul Foundation.”

The campaign closes on November 17th at 11:59 pm PST.

Bon Jovi also announced on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that a tour kicks off in February 2017. The trek is in support of the band’s 14th studio LP, This House Is Not For Sale, now available on October 21st. Tour details available here.
