THE UK’s leading Bon Jovi tribute act is making its way to Halstead for a night of rock heaven.

Wrong Jovi have been described as the “best tribute band in the world” by tribute band expert and presenter of Channel 4’s The Convention Crasher Justin Lee Collins.

Fronted by X Factor hopeful Ally Ward, the five-piece are said to guarantee ‘One Wild Night’ of Bon Jovi’s greatest hits and stadium rocking anthems.

Founding member Mark Harding pays homage to guitar legend Richie Sambora, who has personally thanked the band for their hard work and unforgettable performances.

Simon James is the oldest band member and plays keyboard player David Bryan, Jim Houghton is on bass guitar and backing vocals as Hugh McDonald after formerly playing in a Kiss tribute band, and on the drums paying tribute to Tico Torres is Jon Sturgeon.

The last year has seen Wrong Jovi perform more than 100 shows around the world, selling out music venues and theatres across the UK and headlining festivals in Abu Dhabi and Bahrain, as well as back home in the UK.

In their five years of touring, they have performed across the world and featured on BBC prime-time TV show Even Better Than The Real Thing.

Performing a set of greatest hits, live favourites and rarities, the band ensure that there is something for everyone, from the casual follower to even the most die-hard of Bon Jovi fans.

Wrong Jovi take to the stage at the Empire Theatre on Friday, May 31. Doors will open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

Tickets are on sale now, priced £15, from 07778 025490.
