Bon Jovi blew us away at Hard Rock Calling in London on June 25. I don't know if there's any chance of an official live release, but it'd sure be nice.
Absolute Radio has a photo gallery from the show. They are also streaming Blaze of Glory, Born to Be My Baby, It's My Life, Livin' on a Prayer and Always until July 26, 2011.
There's also a fan recording of the full audio stream here. Various other fan recordings are floating around for download.
And finally, here are some fan videos. :)
Considering this is the opening track of my favourite album, I recognised the intro of the song when I heard it coming through my headphones during the live stream, but I don't think I really believed what I was hearing until Jon started singing.
Bad Medicine / Oh, Pretty Woman
Jon squeezing Richie Sambora's butt at about 3:27.
Some people bag it for being too slow or over-emoted but I don't care; I love Bon Jovi's version of Hallelujah. I never really appreciated the song until Bon Jovi started doing this in 2007... now I love the original as well as many of the cover versions. Though I have to admit, Jon looks rather pained here.
If you follow the blog, you'll probably already know I'm a sucker for this song.
Livin' on a Prayer / Always
