Injury isn't stopping Jon Bon Jovi

During a hometown concert on Friday at New Meadowlands Stadium, Jon Bon Jovi somehow injured himself and ended up with a torn calf muscle (ouch!) near the end of the performance.

But the damaged leg didn’t slow the legendary rocker down - 'cause, you know, he was already halfway there - and rolled right on with the set, closing the two-and-a-half hour show with everyone’s favorite song to sing along with as loudly as possible,“Living on a Prayer.”

“The injury won’t prevent Bon Jovi from playing any of their upcoming stadium dates this summer,” a spokesperson for the band said. The tour's next stop will be in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, on Monday.

    I was there that night and it was an amazing concert. Jon was in a lot of pain but he didn't let it slow him down. It was a fine moment from a great performer. This man gained my respect forever.

    They were amazing and although he was in alot of pain, he didn't miss a beat and almost seemed mad at the fact that it happened. I think if it were not for the injury he would have kept on because as he said that night "He Had Nowhere To Go"...BON JOVI'S AMAZING.
