Rock'n'roll royalty Jon Bon Jovi decided he couldn't keep touring without paying homage to an Irish legend.

Following Bon Jovi's massive RDS gigs this weekend as part of their This House is Not for Sale tour frontman Jon Bon Jovi and the band took a little time out to relax and stroll around the capital.

The group even posed in front of the statue of famous Thin Lizzy frontman, Phil Lynott. Posting on Instagram, Jon Bon Jovi said:

"Thanks Dublin... for Phil Lynott."

 

The band posed with the statue on the same day Lynott's mother Philomena, an Irish legend herself, was laid to rest.

Philomena Lynott was remembered as a "force of nature" at her funeral mass in St Fintan's Church in Sutton on Monday afternoon.
