Tech-savvy Bon Jovi star David Bryan made history onstage at the band’s recent hometown show in New Jersey when he filmed a segment using pioneer eyewear Google Glass.

The keyboard player shot the band performing “Wanted Dead or Alive” in front of him at the MetLife Stadium, using a camera embedded in his spectacles.

The footage has been posted on YouTube.

The video features Bryan trying out Google Glass before the show and then putting the lenses on while performing.

He tells Mashable.com he was more than impressed with the technology, stating, “Glass and wearable-technology is an example of another step in consumer-facing innovation that will change how we share the music experience with our fans in the future. This is relatively uncharted territory for the quick-moving developer community and I am excited to see what is created.”
