Bon Jovi Fan Proposes During Concert

Bon Jovi‘s 2013 tour has been marred by the absence of Richie Sambora (and all the rumors and public feuding), but for the band’s true fans, it’s still all about the music — and at Wednesday night’s (June 19) concert in Gdansk, Poland, it provided the soundtrack to one Jovi-lovin’ couple’s engagement.
As captured in the fan-shot footage embedded above, the evening’s regular set list was interrupted when the band noticed a fan in the front row who was holding up a banner that said “I have the ring in my pocket, I brought our families, if you play ‘Never Say Goodbye’ then I’ll ask her to marry me.” Jon Bon Jovi obliged with an acoustic performance of the song, and the groom-to-be lived up to his end of the bargain, popping the question during the song.
Bon Jovi will remain in Europe through early July before heading back to the States for a brief run of shows, with the band’s summer tour currently set to conclude July 27 in East Rutherford, N.J. They’ll pick up again with a slate of North American dates in the fall. The band’s most recent album, ‘What About Now,’ became its third consecutive No. 1 record upon its release in March.
