Apparently recovered from his recent fight with COVID-19, Jon Bon Jovi made an appearance with The Wallflowers at Stone Pony in Asbury Park. November 12. He sang and played guitar on one of the show’s callbacks: a cover of “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding,” the song written by Nick Lowe and popularized by Elvis Costello & the Attractions.
You can watch the performance below, in a video shot by Marty Jablow and posted on YouTube.
The Wallflowers released their first album in nine years, Exit injuries, in July. Their current tour will last about a week longer, but they are expected to return to New Jersey next summer, opening for Matchbox Twenty at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, July 16; and the BB&T Pavilion in Camden on July 17th.
Jon Bon Jovi made an appearance with The Wallflowers in 1997, at Tradewinds in Sea Bright (as did Bruce Springsteen). And Wallflowers singer’s son, Jakob Dylan, Levi, appeared in Bon Jovi’s 2016 video for “Labor of Love,” a single from his. This house is not for sale album.
You can also watch that below, along with another video of the Stone Pony, from the Exit injuries single, “Roots and Wings”.
