RED BANK, N.J. (AP) — Jon Bon Jovi wants his fans to know he’s alive and well.

Rumors of the musician’s death spread online after a fake news release surfaced on social media sites Monday. However, Bon Jovi was performing at a charity concert at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank.

Bon Jovi is shown in a picture on his Facebook page holding a sign that reads: “Heaven looks a lot like New Jersey.”

His publicist said Bon Jovi was alive and well and playing the show in Red Bank.
