Forget government bailouts! Former first lady Hillary Clinton is hoping Jon Bon Jovi can help with her financial crisis.

The 46-year-old musician is performing at a fundraiser to pay down the remaining $6.3 million Clinton paid out-of-pocket to support her 2008 presidential bid. In all, the former New York senator coughed up $13.1 million in personal loans.

This isn't the first time Bon Jovi, a democrat, has been involved with the 2008 campign Back in October, he held a fundraiser for Obama at his New Jersey home and he also lashed out at the Republican ticket for using a Bon Jovi song without authorization. 

Tickets for the event on Jan. 15 at Manhattan's Town Hall range from $75 to $1,000.

It's being called "a final evening in support of Hillary Clinton for President Debt Relief." If confirmed as President-elect Barack Obama's secretary of state, she's prohibited from seeking campaign contributions.
