Bon Jovi and Vanessa Carlton are the halftime performers for the match-up between the Detroit Lions and defending Super Bowl champions the New England Patriots on Thanksgiving Day (November 28).
New Jersey natives Bon Jovi are huge New York Giants fans, and they helped usher in the football season with a performance in Times Square attended by close to 500,000 people.
LAUNCH asked guitarist Richie Sambora about the band's budding relationship with sports. "I'm a football fan. I'm a baseball fan. I'm a basketball fan. This is a band that is very much into athletics. We'll go see cockfights, bullfights, boxing matches. Wherever we are, if you've got a day off and you have a chance to see a sporting event, you're going to go do it."
