New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi didn't even need "Something For The Pain" to finish a concert in his home state, despite tearing a calf muscle toward the end of the show.

Bon Jovi injured himself toward the end of the band's 2 1/2-hour concert at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford on Friday night, then limped back and forth across the stage for an encore, "Livin' On A Prayer."

The singer, who grew up in Sayreville, N.J., injured his leg during a cover of the Dave Clark Five hit "Glad All Over." About halfway through the song, he leaned heavily on his microphone stand to support his injured leg.

"My calf muscle just blew out! Whoa!," he said from the stage. "I got another leg. I don't need this one."

A video posted on YouTube shows the 48-year-old singer limping back and forth across the stage, flexing his foot as he assures the crowd he's OK.

"Don't you worry, folks," he said. "I ain't got nowhere to go. I'm old. What can I tell you? But I'm still good-lookin'!"

After taking a final bow at the front of the stage with fellow band members, Bon Jovi hobbled off with the help of keyboard player David Bryan, who wrapped his arm around Bon Jovi's back.

A spokeswoman says the band will be able to play the rest of its summer stadium tour and does not anticipate canceling any dates.

The band was to play the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, on Monday night.

Friday night's concert was Bon Jovi's fourth at the New Meadowlands Stadium. The band played the first concert there in May.
