Win the chance to join Bon Jovi on stage at the Ricoh; AEG LIVE ++ COMPETITION ++.

ARE you a Bon Jovi superfan who deserves the chance to join them on stage at Coventry's Ricoh Arena?

The group performs at the Ricoh on Tuesday, June 24, as part of their Lost Highway World Tour, and our superfan will not only win the money-can't-buy prize of an onstage pass, but will also get two Golden Circle tickets to see the show from the best place in the house, as well as copies of the Lost Highway DVD and CD.

It is nearly two years since the band's first appearance at the stadium in June 2006 when 40,000 fans from around the world saw a fantastic concert.

And now they are set to take the city by storm once again - and you could be there on stage.

The Coventry Telegraph is offering the fantastic prize for the person who proves their devotion to Bon Jovi. We want to hear from their army of fans around the area, so write in and tell us why you deserve the great prize.

Have you seen them countless times? Have you travelled to far-off concerts? Do you own their entire record collection? Or have you built up a fantastic array of memorabilia?

As well as the great prizes for the winner - as chosen by our judges - three runners up will each receive one general ticket for the show, organised by AEG, as well as the Lost Highway DVD and CD and a T-shirt.

They will join the crowd at the Ricoh for the latest top name concert after shows by artists such as Rod Stewart and the Red Hot Chili Peppers have put the venue on the international map.

Bon Jovi sell millions of albums around the world.

Their album Slippery When Wet, released in 1986, sold nine million copies in the US alone, with songs like You Give Love a Bad Name, Livin' on a Prayer and Wanted Dead or Alive establishing Bon Jovi as superstars. Hits such as Bad Medicine, I'll Be There for You and It's My Life have followed.

Lost Highway, which features duets with LeAnn Rimes and Big & Rich, arrived in summer 2007 and grabbed the band a healthy 'new country' music fan base, securing the band its third No 1 album in the US, as well as making it to No 1 in Japan, Australia, Europe, and Canada.

So to win this great prize, write in no more than 200 words why you deserve to join Bon Jovi on stage.

Send your entry to: Bon Jovi Fans, John West, Coventry Telegraph, Corporation Street, Coventry, CV1 1FP, or send an e-mail to
