Forbes MOTM Bon Jovi Tribute Show

Sat 18 March

Get back to the 80’s, get your denim out and of course perm your hair because Bon Jovi is going rock Spooner Oval Forbes on March 18… well kind of. Glam Haven from Sydney will be delivering all Bon Jovi’s hits including Livin on a Prayer, Bed of Roses, You Give Love a Bad Name, I’ll be ther for you, Wanted Dead or Alive and It’s My Life.

This event is usually held in Eugowra but due to the flood disaster it is now being held in Forbes and all proceeds from the day will be going to ‘On the Burst to $500k’ charity campaign for the flood ravaged Eugowra community.

20 teams will be reliving their glory days with Over 35’s Rugby League being played on Spooner Oval
