Bon Jovi fans who missed the band's performance last night on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” can check out some newly streaming video footage. The Grammy winners dazzled the studio and TV audience with a blistering rendition of their hit single “You Give Love a Bad Name.”
The legendary New Jersey rocker's performance of the classic 1986 Slippery When Wet anthem was posted on Jan. 18 at the official YouTube channel of “The Late Show.” The appearance follows on the heels of the multi-platinum seller's recently announced 2018 spring tour of North America, which launches March 14 in Denver at Pepsi Center and wraps up March 14 in Washington at Capitol One Arena.
The Wednesday night performance was frontman Jon Bon Jovi's second appearance this week on the popular CBS late-night talk show. The charismatic rocker previously spoke with “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night's episode about the band's upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which will take place on April 14 in Cleveland at Public Auditorium.
Fans can check out the 4:24 minute “Late Show” performance of “You Give Love a Bad Name” above. Colbert's interview from the Tuesday night episode with Bon Jovi can be viewed here.
The “Livin' on a Prayer” hitmakers will be inducted into the Rock Hall by radio and television personality Howard Stern. The news was dropped during an interview with JBJ on Stern's Sirius XM radio show on Wednesday morning.
Bon Jovi will launch round two of their hugely successful This House Is Not For Sale Tour in support of a newly expanded version of their chart-topping 13th studio album, which has been re-dubbed "This House Is Not For Sale (When We Were Us)." The reissue contains two brand new tracks and will be available for streaming and digital download formats on Feb. 23.
