Phil X Says Bon Jovi Will Perform ‘Deep Cuts’ Live On Upcoming Tour


Phil X, the lead guitarist of Bon Jovi, recently appeared on The Mitch Lafon and Jeremy White Show. He reflected on the band’s upcoming tour and what fans should expect from them on stage this time.

Bon Jovi released their fifteenth studio album, titled ‘2020,’ on October 2, 2020. It was initially set to be released on May 15, but the band postponed it due to the pandemic. The album stood out with its emphasis on social issues like the pandemic, the murder of George Floyd, and the subsequent political turmoil. Although it wasn’t considered as the best Bon Jovi album, it was still praised for its successful reflection of the world we’re living in.

The band had announced ‘Bon Jovi: 2020 Tour‘ with Bryan Adams on January 15, 2020, which would take place in the summer of that year. However, they decided to cancel the entire show rather than postpone it after the pandemic. The band recently announced a US arena tour for 2022, which will begin on April 1 and end on April 30.

Before the band’s upcoming long-awaited tour, Phil X recently reflected on their new surprises for the fans during an interview. The guitarist stated that they’ve been rehearsing some deep cuts besides their popular songs. Thus, it looks like there will be some changes in the setlist, which has excited their fans. Phil X revealed that although he’s done many shows before, he is still excited to see the audience’s reactions to their new setlist. He said he couldn’t give too many details at this point, but the fans will be amazed by what they will see on the stage.

Phil X speaking on the upcoming Bon Jovi tour:

“We’ve been digging deep; we’ve been doing digging into the deep cuts at rehearsal. It’s funny because I’ve done so many shows over the years, and I can’t wait to see some of the faces when we hit one of these songs. People are gonna be like, ‘What?!’ It’s pretty exciting in that respect, but I can’t divulge much. That’s all I’m saying.”
