|Bon Jovi & Vanessa Carlton Tapped For NFL Thanksgiving Day Halftime Show
Bon Jovi and pop singer Vanessa Carlton will play the halftime show of the Detroit Lions' Thanksgiving Day (November 28) football game against the New England Patriots. The two acts will be joined by 1,000 volunteers from the United Way, which is sponsoring the halftime show.
It will be Bon Jovi's second gig for the NFL this year: The group helped the league kick off its new season with shows in Times Square and at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, in early September.
The NFL will announce a national anthem singer and other entertainment for the Thanksgiving Day game shortly.
