Steen Presents Bon Jovi with Blues Guitar
Blues forward Alex Steen and Blues CEO Mike McCarthy presented Bon Jovi with a St. Louis Blues themed guitar on Sunday to commemorate the band's first performance in St. Louis in more than a decade.

The guitar was autographed by Blues Hall-of-Famers Al MacInnis, Bernie Federko and Brett Hull and featured a plaque that reads:

Bon Jovi Live 2011
Welcome to the Home of the Blues
Scottrade Center, St. Louis, MO
May 22, 2011

The guitar was donated on behalf of the Amadeus Steen Foundation, a non-profit organization that benefits underprivileged children in Manitoba. The organization was established in 2007 in memory of Steen's brother, who died of a heart condition at a young age. The foundation has raised more than $1 million to improve the lives of children and will be auctioning off more NHL-themed guitars in July.

Bon Jovi, who is responsible for 1980s smash-hits like You Give Love a Bad Name, Livin' on a Prayer and Wanted Dead or Alive, played a sold-out show at Scottrade Center on Sunday night.
