Roadies for a Day
A select group of Canisius students played ‘roadie for a day’ when the Bon Jovi “Because We Can” tour came to town. Students learned the ins and outs of the touring industry and worked alongside the band’s production crew to help put together one of the largest live shows in entertainment. Later that night, they watched it all come together from the audience, as guests of the band.
The students’ backstage pass was part of Bon Jovi’s Community Service College Campaign, which rewards college students who work to make positive changes in their communities. The Canisius students were the only local college students chosen to participate.
