Bon Jovi were joined by the legendary Eric Burdon for a performance of The Animals' "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place", on September 1, 1995 at the concert for the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Rare footage of the performance can be seen below:
Bon Jovi recently released an official video for their single, "Do What You Can". The song will be included on the band's upcoming 2020 album, set for release on October 2 via Island Records. Pre-order the album here, and watch the video below.
Originally set for release on May 15, the 2020 album was a completed album with a breadth and depth of songwriting, titled for a challenging and pivotal election year. Along with all of America, Jon found himself unexpectedly experiencing a world-altering coronavirus pandemic, followed quickly by the staggering events of George Floyd’s death and the ensuing national movement for racial equality. He knew there was even more to say about 2020. Writing from a home studio, two new songs were born: “American Reckoning” and “Do What You Can” encompass these events and made the album a complete body of work.
“I am a witness to history,” said Jon Bon Jovi. “I believe the greatest gift of an artist is the ability to use their voice to speak to issues that move us.”
The final version of “Do What You Can,” written by Jon Bon Jovi, was performed acoustically for the first time on the star-studded Jersey4Jersey benefit special, raising $6 million for the state which was hard hit during the pandemic. In the weeks that followed, the full band was able to record the song in the studio and add it to the forthcoming album.
