Visitor Tips and News About Sacred Shrine to Jon Bon Jovi
We were very excited to see the shrine, but upon arrival we found that it is no longer there.[CGM, 11/28/2012]
The International Special Sacred Shrine of Jon Bon Jovi is an altar on and in front of a woman's porch on Maurepas Street in New Orleans, near the entrance to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
The shrine includes an old doll house filled with Bon Jovi memorabilia, a wig and some Aqua Net hairspray, a cowboy hat and a steel horse, photographs of Bon Jovi, and a guest book with notes from visitors from past years, and lipstick to use to kiss a photograph of Jon Bon Jovi. There are a lot of handmade Bon Jovi-themed arts and trinkets. The shrine was started in 2009 and is bigger than ever, in anticipation of Bon Jovi's April 30 performance.
The shrine welcomes visitors to sign the guest book and use free Aqua Net hair spray.The owner of the shrine is usually there, and the little Chihuahua does not bite.[Tara Jill, 04/18/2011]
