How cool is it when your band gets the opening slot for a Bon jovi concert? But you gotta go to school.
A band called The Contagious was picked to open for BON JOVI in Dallas last Monday . . . but there was one problem. The members are sophomores in HIGH SCHOOL . . . and they had classes that day.
So, JON BON JOVI wrote them a permission slip to get them the day off. It said, quote, "To whom it may concern, please excuse the members of The Contagious for being absent from school . . .
"They were busy being my opening act and kicking butt."
Here's the note.
