AceShowbiz - Jon Bon Jovi was forced to pull out of a gig in Florida on Saturday night (30Oct21) following a last-minute positive COVID-19 test.
The Bon Jovi frontman, who is fully vaccinated, scrapped his performance in Miami Beach, hours before he was due to take to the stage after learning of his diagnosis.
His spokesperson confirmed, "Jon is fully vaccinated and feeling fine."
According to reports, fans had already been admitted to Loews South Beach for the Runaway with JBJ event before they were informed Jon would be unable to perform.
The singer's backing band, the Kings of Suburbia, also opted not to perform out of "an abundance of caution."
The spokesperson added, "This was a Runaway concert, which means it is a smaller more intimate type acoustic show for the top levels of his fan club, so he is backed by on these by a group of musicians called the kings of suburbia (sic) , not by Bon Jovi - and out of an abundance of caution they did not perform without Jon."
Bon Jovi's brother, Matt Bongiovi, told the Asbury Park Press the rocker "feels great" but would be going to bed instead of performing.
Jon experienced a COVID-19 scare last year (20), when his 18-year-old son Jacob tested positive for the virus, along with Bon Jovi keyboard player David Bryan and percussionist Everett Bradley.
During pandemic, the musician also suffered from a "pretty bad" umbilical hernia and needed surgery to fix the issue.
He couldn't sing or work out during his recovery. "It's so bad...," he said in an interview. "I'm in day two, and I couldn't sing and I couldn't shower and I'm like, 'This is not gonna be fun.' "
