Jon Bon Jovi – America the Beautiful
Bon Jovi have taped a stirring performance of America The Beautiful at a New York City fire station for an upcoming TV tribute to the victims of 9/11. The footage is part of the Nfl Kickoff 2011: Back to Football special, which will air on Saturday night (10Sep11) in America. Kid Rock, Maroon 5 and Lady Antebellum will also appear as part of the hour-long show, aimed at marking both the new American football season and the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But while Rock, Maroon 5 and country trio Lady Antebellum taped live performances outside Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin before Thursday’s (08Sep11) Green Bay Packers home opener against the New Orleans Saints, Bon Jovi filmed a much more low-key set. The rock band’s rendition of America the Beautiful at Engine 8, Ladder 2, Battalion 8 recreated a performance by the group 10 years ago, following 9/11.
