This is kind of a "catch up on things I didn't have time to post about before" post before the resumption of the This House Is Not For Sale Tour.
First of all, Jon Bon Jovi did a solo Runaway Tours show at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on February 26, 2018. I know that was over a fortnight ago, but hey, I was busy. I don't always post about the Runaway Tours gigs but this one was worth mentioning because it included the live debuts of This House Is Not For Sale bonus tracks "I Will Drive You Home" and "Color Me In".
Here's "Living in Sin" and "Color Me In":
Jon also attempted "Silent Night" but couldn't remember any of it. 😁
He seemed to get emotional when talking about how hard he's working on his voice in response to a fan's question:
I didn't see a video of "I Will Drive You Home" from this show, but Jon did perform it again at a Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation benefit concert at New York's Tarrytown Music Hall on March 4. Here's a partial video of "I Will Drive Your Home" from that show:
JBJ & Friends played "Color Me In" again at the benefit show, which I'm going to post because it's a pretty good video:
Jon confirmed during the Vegas gig that there'd be no European tour this year (which we'd kind of figured out). He did casually mention going to Australia and Japan when interviewed by ExtraTV (on the red carpet for the recent iHeartRadio Music Awards) though:
Anyway, the Bon Jovi tour kicks off again tonight in Denver.
