Bon Jovi to Buffalo; Rock on the Roar voting begins

Bon Jovi has added a late addition to its winter tour — a Feb. 24 concert at Buffalo’s First Niagara Center. Tickets will go on sale Jan. 25 at www.tickets.com and by phone at (888) 223-6000.

Also just in: Clutch will play Pittsburgh’s Stage AE on April 19 with special guests Orange Goblin and Lionize. Tickets go on sale Jan. 25 at Ticketmaster.

Voting for local bands to play Roar on the Shore begins today at the Roar’s official Facebook page. More than 30 groups entered the contest; the three winners will get to open for Roar main stage acts during the event from July 18-20 in Perry Square. A year ago, Chrome, Leader of Men and Drunk in Memphis won the honors.
To vote, all you need to do is “like” the band’s photo of your favorite group on the Roar’s Facebook page. The top three vote-getters will win. To ensure that a local band wins, entrants had to be from within a 150-mile radius of Erie.
Voting will conclude on Feb. 18 at 10 a.m.

The Lumineers will be the music guest on Saturday for “Saturday Night Live.” Guest host is Jennifer Lawrence, so expect a “Hunger Games” parody. Or “Silver Linings Playbook.” Or both.
