Mark your calendars Bon Jovi fans, because Jon Bon Jovi is giving an intimate performance, and hosting a happy hour beforehand, and it's all for an important cause.
iHeartRadio ICONS with Jon Bon Jovi: A Special Benefit Concert for World Central Kitchen will live stream on Friday (August 14) at 7pm ET on Hampton Water’s Facebook page and can be heard on iHeartRadio stations. During the set, Bon Jovi and the Kings of Suburbia will perform select acoustic numbers, as well as chat for an interview with Q104.3's Jim Kerr. It’s all in honor of the star and his son Jesse Bongiovi's rosé wine company, Hampton Water, which will see them donate $1 per bottle of Hampton Water to World Central Kitchen to help combat hunger and poverty across the globe, especially as the world is still feeling the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. All proceeds will go to minority owned businesses.
And what's a little wine without happy hour? Jon and Jesse will appear during an exclusive pre-show virtual happy hour and wine tasting, hosted by Live Nation at 6:30pm ET via LiveNation.com. Fans can submit questions for Jon and Jesse (via Hampton Water's Facebook page) which they will answer during the happy hour, as well as talk about Hampton Water and their partnership with WCK and more.
In a statement, Bongiovi said of teaming up with World Central Kitchen, "When the pandemic started and people were struggling across the country, we knew we needed to do something to help. WCK has created an amazing pathway to not only help those in need, but also bring out of work restaurants much needed business. For us this partnership was a no brainer."
