Bon Jovi’s “Because We Can” tour was scheduled to launch Saturday at Mohegan Sun, but a blizzard dropped more than 2 feet of snow on the state, and the "official" concert was postponed.

The band didn't disappoint some fans however.  Bon Jovi took the stage at Mohegan Sun for a free concert at 5 p.m. Saturday, according to a casino spokesperson.

"I wanted to confirm that they did in fact perform a special, free concert for hotel guests and fans that had made the trek in advance to see the show," Cathy Soper said.   The boys from Jersey performed their full concert for the 2,000 people who attended the show, she said.

The "offical" show has been rescheduled to Friday, Oct. 25.
