Patti Fiasco Opens for Bon Jovi, Finally
We were all ecstatic last year when it was announced that Wyoming band, Patti Fiasco, had been chosen to open up for Bon Jovi in Denver. But, when Jon Bon Jovi came down with a bad case of laryngitis and had to cancel the show, our hearts broke. Patti Fiasco put on a last-minute show for their fans that night to make up some of the heartbreak.
But now it's finally happened. Last night, to a packed arena crowd, Wyoming's darling alt rock-country band played their hearts out. Judging from their live videos, the Pepsi Center was filled to the brim. You can check out live videos from the band as they took the stage on their facebook page.
A message on the page as the band completed their press for the show said "We cant believe that this is happening..." Bon Jovi offered special presale tickets for those who bought tickets in 2017 before the show was cancelled.
Patti Fiasco, a band started right here in Laramie by former UW Basketball player, Alysia Kraft, has seen a lot of success in Wyoming and Colorado since their founding in 2008, with awards for their last album Small Town Lights. They frequently come through Laramie for shows at local bars and venues.
