Bon Jovi fans pumped to catch the band on its highly anticipated North American tour can whet their appetites with video footage of the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee's latest single, “When We Were Us.” The legendary New Jersey rockers performed the live debut of the song on Feb. 22 during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
The Grammy winner's highly anticipated performance was posted on Feb. 23 via the official YouTube channel of “The Late Show.” “When We Were Us” is the lead single from the expanded reissue of This House Is Not For Sale, which dropped Friday via Island and features two brand new songs.
“The Late Show” stint was the third time Jon Bon Jovi has appeared on the popular CBS late-night talk show in the past two months. The charismatic frontman previously appeared for an interview with Colbert on Jan.16 to chat about the upcoming Rock Hall induction and returned on Jan. 17 with the band to rock through their 1986 single “You Give Love a Bad Name.”
The 4:04 minute video opens with dueling rhythms from Bon Jovi lead guitarist Phil X and touring guitarist John Shanks. The momentum of the anthem rocker slowly builds through the first verse, leading to an explosive chorus as Jon Bon Jovi sings, “Writing every page together/Those days were not to last forever/Diamonds in the rough/When we were us.”
The expanded edition of This House Is Not For Sale features 17 tracks, including two brand new songs “Where We Were Us” and “Walls.” It is available here in CD, digital, vinyl and streaming formats. Fans can check out Bon Jovi's performance on “The Late Show” above.
The “Livin' on a Prayer” hitmakers will be honored with the first-ever iHeartRadio Icon Award and will also perform at the the fifth annual iHeartRadio Music Awards, scheduled to take place March 11 in Los Angeles at The Forum and will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Howard Stern on April 14 in Cleveland at Public Auditorium.
