Bon Jovi had a big surprise in store for the graduating class of New Jersey’s Fairleigh Dickinson University on Tuesday.
The band made a surprise appearance at the school’s commencement ceremony, which was being held at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Thanks to an MTV contest with the band, students were asked to share their most memorable college moments with the hashtag #JBJReunionContest. Whichever school had the best posts won.
Not only did the band make a surprise appearance, they also performed the song “Reunion” off of their latest album, “This House is Not For Sale”.
“We are going to pop up and surprise the school that had the most votes to get us to come,” Jon Bon Jovi said on “Good Morning America” on Tuesday. “I can only give you a hint that it is a big locker room. I have played in many of buildings over the course of our career,” the singer teased.
The singer revealed his children, Stephanie and Jesse, were also graduating from college this week. “Daddy is going to two graduations,” he joked.
As expected, the graduating class took to social media to share some videos of the band performing:
