Live From London is a live concert video from the American rock band Bon Jovi. It was the band's first concert video and was shot at Wembley Stadium on June 25, 1995 in front of 72,000 fans on the These Days Tour. Directed by David Mallet and produced by Andy Picheta, the release shows Bon Jovi performing some of their staple live hits, and also some songs from their album These Days. The approximate running time is 90 minutes, as some songs from the concert were cut from this release. For the production, Mallett and Picheta earned a nomination for Best Long Form Music Video at the 39th Annual Grammy Awards.[1]

The last track "These Days" is a music video featuring concert clips rather than a live performance.

Additional information[edit]

  • The concert was originally released on VHS in 1995, then worldwide on DVD in 2003. It was also later included in the Cross Road: Deluxe Sound & Vision box set in 2005, although for some reason, despite appearing on the disc, the song Lay Your Hands On Me is not credited as featuring on this release.
  • The DVD version contained no additional material or extra features, nor was the existing material remastered. The concert is in letterboxed widescreen and in 2.0 stereo. The material itself is therefore, identical to the VHS version.
  • The "These Days" bonus video was compiled from footage from the Live From London concert, using the full studio track, and is not the same as the "These Days" promo video.
