Jon Bon Jovi has reassured fans his recent knee injury will not force him to scrap any impending tour dates, despite heading into surgery later this week (begs27Jun11).
The Bon Jovi rocker was on-stage in Helsinki, Finland earlier this month (Jun11) when he tore a ligament in his knee during a high-octane performance.
He is set to undergo minor surgery to fix the injury later this week (begs27Jun11), but the star is adamant the operation won't stop him from committing to his next show in Istanbul, Turkey on 8 July (11).
He tells Extra, "It was raining, we were outside. It was nothing that abrupt... it just sort of gave out and tore.
"Fortunately, we have a week off. So the doctor claims I'll be alright for Istanbul eight days later. I can't dance anyway, so it's not gonna hurt anybody."
