Fans are getting worried for Jon Bon Jovi‘s vocals as his recent performances are going viral for the wrong reasons.
The iconic singer got back on the road in early April and spend the entire month on his North American arena tour. However, the reviews about the singer’s live vocals are not good.
A lot of fan footage resurfaced on TikTok and YouTube and the comments reached the Asbury Park Press, Jon Bon Jovi’s local paper, which run a story speculating on why Jon Bon Jovi’s vocal performances have been, as one TwinCities.com review described it, “shockingly poor.”
The Asbury Park Press quoted voice pedagogy associate professor Matt Edwards, who said:
“Bon Jovi should check in with a laryngologist and get his vocal folds looked at. There’s all kinds of things that can creep up and cause problems, many of which we have no control over.”
Edwards noted that Jon Bon Jovi had to stop singing for two weeks last October when he got COVID-19 and explained that his vocal issues could have something to do with prolonged COVID effects. The Darkness’ Justin Hawkins also posted a YouTube video telling his insights about Bon Jovi’s voice and suggests that the singer might need to take more time to rest before playing more shows.
You can watch the videos below taken from Bon Jovi’s recent performances. There’s one where he was criticized when he sang his classic “You Give Love A Bad Name” in Houston on April 26 and didn’t reach the high notes. Another one was when he sang “Wanted Dead Or Alive” in Raleigh a few weeks earlier.
