UNDATED (AP) — Fans who had plans to check out Jon Bon Jovi this weekend in New York will have to make other arrangements. He won't be doing the shows because of illness. He decided last night to put off the shows at Madison Square Garden tonight and tomorrow night — to give him more time to recover from bronchitis. Bon Jovi has been struggling for more than a week now. Both fans and critics have noted he has had trouble singing and hitting some high notes during his shows. And he cut short his concert in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, telling the audience he wasn't feeling well. He even jokingly asked if there was anyone from a bar band knew all the words to Bon Jovi songs — and could fill in for him. Tickets for tonight's New York shows will be honored next Thursday and tomorrow's show tickets are good for a week from tomorrow.
