Air Force One just arrived in New York City for three fundraisers this evening. Bon Jovi is performing at one of them, later tonight.

(UPDATE: As the pool report notes, "We caught a quick glimpse of Jon Bon Jovi disappearing around a hanger and learned only then that he had flown on Air Force One with us. (he is headlining the Waldorf gala tonight).")

As CNN reported, "A gala at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel will follow, featuring a performance by musician Jon Bon Jovi. Tickets started $2,500 for the 500 guests."

(UPDATE II: The White House confirms: "Bon Jovi flew on AF1 to NYC as a guest of the President's," a statement to the press via the pooler reads.)
