The only authorized Bon Jovi tribute in the world, which can include the pre-game show of Super Bowl XLVIII among its hundreds of headlining appearances, will join the Spazmatics as co-headliners of the 2018 Jesuit Homecoming Concert on Saturday, Nov. 3, at Gilley's Dallas. We have learned that LOCASH is unable to fulfill its commitment, but excited to add Slippery When Wet to the bill. The band has garnered a huge reputation for replicating the exact live arrangements from Bon Jovi's most famous world tours. Buy your tickets today for what may be our most raucous party yet!
