Bon Jovi: Sandy benefit 'like a barn raising’

  • Jon Bon Jovi was one of the many superstar singers who took the stage for benefit concert at Madison Square Garden

The crowd at New York’s Madison Square Garden could hardly contain their excitement when rocker Jon Bon Jovi took the stage at “12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief” and Bon Jovi felt the same. The New Jersey native said the vibe in the famed arena was “barn raising.”

Showbiz Tonight’s A.J. Hammer caught up with Bon Jovi in New York City and asked how last night’s benefit differed from ones he had participated in the past.  

“This was a kind of a night where we said, okay we all came through. This is something we can fix. Let’s all join hands and do something. Both governors were there in a celebratory mood and able to relax. All the artists came together and there was no great sadness as there was in 9/11,” explained Bon Jovi. “This felt a little bit more like, we are going to fix this. We are going to be better for it. We are going to meet our neighbors, we are going to create communities again.”
