HAMILTON (CP) – New Jersey rockers Bon Jovi discovered the true meaning of slippery when wet early Saturday when their private plane skidded off the runway at Hamilton International Airport.

At about 1:30 a.m., a private plane carrying members of Bon Jovi and their touring staff overshot the runway after landing in severe weather conditions in Hamilton, said a spokeswoman for the band.

The Boeing 707 carried 14 passengers plus flight crew and was arriving from Buffalo, NY, where the band played show on Friday night.

The band, staff, and flight crew deplaned with no reports of injuries. Saturday, Monday and Tuesday’s shows at Toronto’s Air Canada Center will proceed as planned.
