TV Tonight: The Return of "MTV Unplugged"

TV Tonight: The Return of "MTV Unplugged"

MTV's occasional "Unplugged" series is back — big time.

The series, which features rock stars performing in a more stripped-down style, returns tonight with Bon Jovi, the act most often credited with starting the series in the first place after an acoustic performance at the 1989 Video Music Awards. In all, three different versions of the set will air: one tonight on MTV, one Saturday on VH1 and one Sunday on CMT. Bon Jovi is expected to draw heavily from its new country-tinged album, Lost Highway, though each of the three versions of the performance will be tailored to the particular channel's audience.

Upcoming "Unplugged" concerts this summer include The Police, Kenny Chesney, Mary J. Blige and John Mayer. Though air dates for those shows haven't been announced, The Police are reportedly filming their special in mid-July in Miami.

Is MTV even relevant anymore? They stopped being a "music" channel ages ago.

Awesome news!!! I LOVED the Unplugged shows when they were more common in the 90's. I'm so glad to hear it's returning b/c MTV should be more about music than having one after the other reality TV show.
