Jon Bon Jovi Injured, Finishes Concert

7/10/2010 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Bon Jovi really was "Livin' on a Prayer" last night after he injured his calf during a concert at the New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey, but finished the show like a champ.



In the video above, you can clearly see Jon struggling to walk around on stage -- but he sings the ironic closing song, "Living On a Prayer" as if nothing is wrong. In the video below, you can see Jon thanking the crowd before being carried off by the rest of the band.



A rep for Bon Jovi tells TMZ: "Near the end of Bon Jovi's two-and-a-half hour show at New Meadowlands Stadium on Friday night, Jon Bon Jovi sustained a torn calf muscle ... The injury will not prevent Bon Jovi from playing any of their upcoming stadium dates this summer."

simply dehydration.

Some fluids and some rest today and he'll be fine.

Doesn't look too painful. He gets a lot of money for it so he should be able to finish the concert properly. What a milksop he has become, but that's the way it goes when your career goes down the drain.

Hey Jon, we're still waiting for our free concert up in Philly. Remember your promise, if the Phila Souls won the championship you'd celebrate with a free Philly concert? Well they won. Just because you no longer own the Soul's doesn't mean you get to welch. What's up with that?
We have long memories here in Philly.

I was at the concert and his comment to us in the audience when it was obvious that he was injured was hilarious. He said what do you want I am getting old.... but i'm still really good looking.

It seems to me that the real issue here is that he didn't wimp out and end the concert prematurely, even though you can see the pain in his eyes. Whether you are young or old, when you're "live", sh-t happens. Kudos to Jon for being an old-school pro!!

I read the headline and thought he might've fallen off the stage or something drastic. But, a calf injury right before the final song of the show!?! Oh yeah... you're a real trooper there, Jon.

I hope Jon is better. May God bless you. I love you so much. He was injured in the previous song. Here is the moment when the injury happened: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRtLpMMjIsQ

We are all getting old, Jon. And you are still damn good looking, hope the calf feels better soon. Those types of injuries hurt like hell, I hope it is not torn or too serious. The Jon Bon Jovi band members are old school pros. I enjoyed the video much.
