Bon Jovi Injures Leg at NJ Concert

Bon Jovi continued performing after tearing a calf muscle

Maybe he had “Something For The Pain,” but New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi was able to finish a concert in his home state despite tearing a calf muscle toward the end of the show.

Bon Jovi injured himself toward the end of the band's 2 1/2-hour concert at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford on Friday night. He then limped back on the stage for an encore, “Livin’ On A Prayer.”

A spokeswoman says the band will be able to play the rest of its summer stadium tour and does not anticipate canceling any dates.

YouTube video shows the 48-year-old singer limping back and forth across the stage, occasionally flexing his foot as he assures the crowd he's OK.

“I'm old, what can I tell you?” he says.
