Watch Bon Jovi Lead New England Patriots Fans in Massive Sing-Along
Patriots Nation got an extra dose of adrenaline when football superfan Jon Bon Jovi lead the crowd in a massive sing-along of the Bon Jovi hit, "Livin' on a Prayer" this weekend.
Jon Bon Jovi -- who once owned the Arena Football League team Philadelphia Soul and also made a bid to buy the Buffalo Bills -- was on hand for the New England Patriots victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night (Jan. 22), and took in the action alongside die-hard Patriots fan Donnie Wahlberg of New Kids on the Block and injured Pats tight end Rob Gronkowski from a private box.
An avowed New York Giants fan, Jon Bon Jovi goes way back with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick when he was still the defensive coordinator for the team.
Speaking on a conference call to reporters, Belichick said the moment at Gillette Stadium was a "special" moment for the fans.
"I’ve heard him play that song dozens of times, but he had the place rocking, maybe a little more than we did. Yeah, pretty impressive. He’s a great friend, been a great friend for a long time all the way back into the '80s," the record-breaking coach said. "We’ve shared a lot of great moments together, including the 1990 Super Bowl [with the Giants] in Tampa where he was in the locker room after the game still taking crazy pictures and stuff like that; great memories from there. It was great to have Jon here and I always appreciate his great support. It was quite a moment, one that you usually don’t see at a professional football game."
The New England Patriots take on the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI on Sunday, Feb. 5. Lady Gaga will perform the halftime show.
