Default When / where was the live Debut of Livin on a Prayer?

Does anybody have a recording of the first time this was played?

Somebody said they played it in Dec 1985, but I can't find confirmation anywhere?

anybody know? thanks

According to setlistfm it was first played on November 7, 1986 at St George's Hall, Bradford, England which would fit in with being released as a single on 30th October.

That's bullshit, the song most likely wasn't even written in 1985 yet.

This most likely was the first one:

The first show it was performed at was in Bradford, UK on Nov 7 1986, but they actually played it in Newcastle for a TV show (The Tube) a few hours before the Bradford gig, so technically that's the first.
