Bon Jovi go green in Mexico - 23 Jul 2007
Bon Jovi recently played a concert in Mexico with an environmentally-friendly edge.
While 20 years ago the rockers might have enjoyed a holiday in Mexico for its nightlife, the band are now more concerned with the fate of the country's green spaces, it has emerged.
Proceeds from their recent concert in the country, at which Latin America pop stars Fito Paex and Mexican musician Aleks Syntek also performed, went to the Chapultepec forest, reports ITV.
The gig took place in the 14th century Chapultepec Castle, the former residence of French emperor Maximilian of Hapsburg that is now a museum.
Fito Paez told the news provider: "We are going to recover the Chapultepec forest. Money will also be donated to the Restrepo foundation in Colombia, it's fabulous, it's a noble cause, so here we are to support this."
Holidays in Mexico are always surprising and the country is renowned as a place where a diverse blend of cultural influences thrives.
In related news, US archaeologists recently found evidence that Mexicans cooked with at least ten different spices as long as 1,500 years ago.
