Bon Jovi played a surprise show Tuesday morning -- an acoustic performance at the commencement for New Jersey's Fairleigh Dickinson University at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The school was the winner in a nationwide contest to have the band perform at its graduation. Taking the stage, Jon Bon Jovi said, "Today marks the end of one chapter in your life and the start of another. Enjoy the book. You're the one writing it."
On Sunday, another Garden State musician, E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt, gave the commencement speech at New Jersey's Rutgers University.
Graduates must've LOVED it!
