Justin Hawkins Says He Would Ask Jon Bon Jovi To Cancel His Shows If He Worked For Him
The Darkness vocalist Justin Hawkins has been analyzing the stage performances of the musicians on his YouTube channel ‘Justin Hawkins Rides Again.’ He examined Jon Bon Jovi‘s live singing in a recent video he shared. Hawkins declared that he would suggest Bon Jovi cancel the shows if he was on his team.
Jon Bon Jovi headed on an extensive tour for his 2016 album ‘This House Is Not For Sale.’ He performed in many countries, including the United States, Asia, and Europe. After completing the tour, Bon Jovi announced the release of their fifteenth album named ‘2020.’ Also, he would hit the road to promote the album; however, it had to be rescheduled because of the pandemic.
The band canceled the tour because of the ongoing pandemic. It was later announced that they would hit the road for the ‘Bon Jovi 2022 Tour‘ between April 1, 2022, and April 30. They planned fifteen shows in North America, as they declared.
The Darkness’ Justin Hawkins recently interpreted Bon Jovi’s singing on tour on his YouTube channel. According to Hawkins, although Bon Jovi was a great singer, he did not look comfortable while singing, and he looked like having a medical problem. The Darkness singer mentioned that the problem was not about his voice but stage anxiety and needed therapy as he examined it.
Hawkins made these remarks according to his stage experiences and medical injuries about the voice the musicians could have. The vocalist stated that if he were among the people working for Bon Jovi, he would suggest canceling the shows and thinking about his health.
Justin Hawkins explained his analysis after watching Jon Bovi’s several performances:
“He’s a great singer — he always has been — but this sounds like something is eating away at him from the inside. And I don’t think it’s a voice injury; I think it’s more of something like a manifestation of performance anxiety that’s stopping him from delivering his trademark Gale Force 10 mega vocal that you need on these huge tracks these anthemic mega hits.
I think if I was working for Jon Bon Jovi and I cared about the ‘brand,’ I would ask him to consider canceling the tour and getting some medical attention.”
