NEW YORK (AP) — Bon Jovi’s first shows in China have been canceled. AEG Live Asia says the September 14 show in Shanghai and the September 17 show in Beijing have been called off for “unforeseen reasons.” Bon Jovi’s representative did not respond to a request for comment. The Financial Times newspaper reports the shows were called off because the Culture Ministry had discovered that the band once included a picture of the Dalai Lama in a video backdrop during a concert in Taiwan in 2010. The ruling Communist Party is sensitive to any perceived support from foreign governments and celebrities for the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader.
