Bon Jovi was forced to postpone the first concert of their North American tour after a blizzard hit New England.

The band was set to kick off the tour on Saturday night in Connecticut but after the governor declared a state of emergency and issued a mandatory statewide travel ban, the group was forced to postpone the show.

But fans and employees who were at the Mohegan Sun Arena were treated to a free impromptu concert on Saturday night, according to the band's website.

They said of the surprise set, "Bon Jovi recognizes how much preparation it takes for fans to attend a concert and they wanted to honor that the best way that they know how."

The band has already announced that the make up date for the show will take place on October 25th and tickets from the original concert will be honored on the new date.
