Want China Times
By: CNA and Staff Reporter
Jon Bon Jovi apologized to his fans on Tuesday for the cancellation of Bon Jovi’s two
scheduled concerts in Taipei due to Typhoon Dujuan, saying the band members were heartbroken and hoped to return to Taiwan to perform next year.
“So we just want everybody to know how sorry we are. Because of the typhoon, the government called this a typhoon day. And we had to go on to Abu Dhabi,” Jon Bon Jovi told local reporters at Taipei Songshan Airport, before departing Taiwan for Abu Dhabi on a private jet. “But we’re brokenhearted. You know we came with the best of intentions to perform for our fans. And I hope that we can come back next year,” he said. The band last played in Taiwan in 1995.
Some 200 fans who went to the airport to see off the band sang the popular Chinese-language song The Moon Represents My Heart in farewell to Jon, pianist and keyboardist David Bryan and drummer Tico Torres. It was the song, made famous by the late Teresa Teng and learned by every student of Mandarin, that Jon sang in a video that was posted on the internet in August and dedicated to his Chinese fans.
