Jon Bon Jovi and his band have become the first act to perform live on the roof of the O2 Arena in London.
The rock group kicked off their 12-date residency at the Greenwich venue with the rooftop performance, which was beamed live onto Peninsula Square's High Definition Screen for fans in front of the Arena.
The musicians were helped by trained mountaineers to reach the top of the roof, which stands as high as Nelson's Column at 58 metres above the ground.
Bon Jovi opened the O2 Arena in 2007 and the band have now returned for their first residency at the venue. They will be supported tonight by The Side, an unsigned band from the Highlands who won a competition to appear on stage with the US rock group.
The frontman disclosed before the rooftop show on Monday that he dislikes being away from home because he misses his family.
"It's horrible when you are away touring, it's terrible - you are away from everyone and it can be for long periods, but so are travelling salesmen and soldiers," he told the English Daily Mirror.
Bon Jovi has been married to his high-school sweetheart Dorothea for 20 years, and they have four children together.
