Bon Jovi Brave Lightning Storm For 'Everyday' Video

Song is first single from band's upcoming Bounce, due in October.

Bon Jovi just wrapped up a video for "Everyday," the first single off their

upcoming Bounce, with a performance that can only be called electric.

During the final take, an aerial shot filmed from a helicopter hovering

overhead, a lightning storm hit, forcing all "nonessential" personnel (i.e.

everyone but the producer, the cameraman and the band) to evacuate the set,

according to the band's spokesperson at Island Records.

The Jersey rockers were shooting in a remote region of Socorro, New Mexico,

surrounded by 27 massive satellite dishes at an installation called the Very

Large Array, one of the world's largest astronomical radio observatories.

The VLA was chosen for the "global feeling" it provided, as the satellite

dishes were intended to create the illusion of the band's music broadcast to

all corners of the world, the spokesperson said.

In order to further this universal sentiment, camera crews were sent to said

corners to capture footage later interspersed throughout the video. Bon Jovi

will release "Everyday" later this summer, priming fans for the October 8

release of Bounce, their eighth studio album.

Recorded in the band's home state of New Jersey, Bounce was

co-produced by Luke Ebbin, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, the same

production team that created 2000's smash album Crush, which went

double-platinum in the U.S. and sold 8 million copies worldwide. The band

plans an international tour next year.
