Working Class Heroes: Bon Jovi Takes Over Wembley

It’s impossible to listen to ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ by Bon Jovi and not sing along. And when that chord change hits? Forget it – chills down your spine and you suddenly believe in the American Dream all over again.

Bon Jovi took over Wembley Stadium in 1995 for their These Days Tour, and while they performed a few tracks from their album These Days, the real star of the show was working class anthem ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’.

‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ is a song everyone can identify with: doing the best you can with what you have, and living on the prayer that tomorrow will be better.

The guys in Bon Jovi are fantastic live! Jon Bon Jovi has an electric stage presence, and he actually lived what he writes about. Richie Sambora on guitar is always a magical thing to behold, and it’s awesome to see that he’s always Jon’s right hand man onstage.

This performance is featured on Bon Jovi’s first concert video, Live In London. 72,000 people were there!

‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ is my favorite way to start my day. Hopefully, it’s yours too now!

+ Livin’ On A Prayer lyrics +

Once upon a time not so long ago
Tommy used to work on the docks, union’s been on strike
He’s down on his luck, it’s tough, so tough
Gina works the diner all day working for her man
She brings home her pay, for love, for love

She says, we’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot for love
We’ll give it a shot

Woah, we’re half way there
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear
Woah, livin’ on a prayer

Tommy’s got his six-string in hock
Now he’s holding in what he used to make it talk
So tough, it’s tough
Gina dreams of running away
When she cries in the night, Tommy whispers
Baby, it’s okay, someday

We’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot for love
We’ll give it a shot

Woah, we’re half way there
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Livin’ on a prayer

Oh, we’ve got to hold on, ready or not
You live for the fight when it’s all that you’ve got
Woah, we’re half way there
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear
Woah, livin’ on a prayer

Woah, we’re half way there
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear
Woah, livin’ on a prayer

Woah, we’re half way there
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
