Five unsigned U.K. bands are about to get the chance of a lifetime – opening for [lastfm]Bon Jovi [/lastfm]during their upcoming run at London’s O2 Arena. The New Jersey rockers are holding a contest to fill the opening slots at their O2 shows.
The contest calls for bands to upload videos of their music, which will then be reviewed by Bon Jovi’s management, gig promoters and talent agents. The winners will get to play 30-minute sets before one of Bon Jovi’s five London shows this June.
“If you want to open one of our O2 shows and think you’ve got the chops to win, upload a track via http://www.openforbonjovi.com and we’ll be seeing you on tour!” says guitarist [lastfm]Richie Sambora [/lastfm]in an official statement.
The shows will take place on June 7, 8, 10, 11 and 13 and bands must upload their videos no later than May 31.
