Bon Jovi’s keyboard man David Bryan has tested positive for Coronavirus.
“I just got my results back today and tested positive for Coronavirus. I’ve been sick for a week and feeling better each day. Please don’t be afraid!!! It’s the flu not the plague. I’ve have been quarantined for a week and will for another week. And when I feel better I’ll get tested again to make sure I’m free of this nasty virus. Please help out each other. This will be over soon. . . with the help of every American!!” he said on Instagram on Saturday.
A new Broadway musical co-written by David Bryan was in previews in New York before the pandemic shut down the city. Diana: A True Musical Story — based on the life of Princess Diana — was set to open on March 31st.
Also on Saturday, Chicago residents fought off Corona virus-mandated isolation by singing ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ from their windows and porches tonight, and Jon Bon Jovi was with them in spirit.
With the state of Illinois under a stay-at-home order in an effort to curb the spread of the potentially deadly virus, 8,300 Facebook users in the windy city pledged to attend the socially distant 7:00 PM event. Another 11,000 listed themselves as ‘interested.'”
Jon Bon Jovi posted a message of encouragement to the singers stating he would be singing along with them.
Bon Jovi will release its 15th album, titled, Bon Jovi 2020 on May 15th.
