Bon Jovi adds Taiwan show following China tour cancellation

Posted:

BEIJING (AP) -- Bon Jovi is adding a second concert in Taiwan this month, after the rock group's concert tour in China was abruptly canceled.
  
The event promoter Live Nation Taiwan announced Thursday night on Facebook the second performance would be on Sept. 29, the day after the previously scheduled concert.
  
AEG Live Asia has declined to say why performances Sept. 14 in Shanghai and Sept. 17 in Beijing were canceled.
  
The Financial Times reported that China's 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 has denounced the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader as a separatist.
