A handful of fans have already gotten to hear all of Bon Jovi‘s new album in concert, but next year a whole lot more will also get their chance to see the band onstage.
Bon Jovi have announced 20 concerts in support of their upcoming album, This House Is Not for Sale, starting on Feb. 8 in Greenville, S.C., and wrapping up six weeks later in Indianapolis. In between, they’ll play shows in Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Cleveland.
This House Is Not for Sale, originally scheduled for release on Oct. 21, has been pushed back a couple of weeks to Nov. 4. It marks Bon Jovi’s first album with longtime guitarist Richie Sambora, who left in 2013, during the band’s Because We Can World Tour.

Bon Jovi‘s tour in support of their This House Is Not for Sale album is officially under way.
The group played the first of its 2017 tour dates last night in Greenville, S.C., unveiling a set list that managed to deliver a hefty selection of hits while still making room for a number of cuts from the new LP. After opening with a one-two punch of Sale tracks, the band segued into signature anthem “You Give Love a Bad Name,” as you can see in the fan-shot footage above.

Desmond Child

Published in Interviews

Desmond Child must be the most...sung “unsung hero” of the music industry! You see, it is almost certain that the majority of the composers will always be standing in the shadow of the artists that usually take full credit (although someone else has written the song for them). “Desmond Child has saved my career”, Alice Cooper revealed to us back in 2004 and please trust us when we are saying: there are far too many bands whose careers were saved thanks to Desmond Child’s skills.

The new Bon Jovi album, the first one without longtime guitarist Richie Sambora, will be released in September, said Jon Bon Jovi during a solo show Sunday, April 30 in Austin, Texas.See you in September.

"The record is done. The record is just being mixed now. I’m ecstatic with it if for nothing else, out of pain comes great songs. And I’m really, really happy with the record," said Bon Jovi.

20 years have passed since the release of “These Days”; 20 years since the release of the darkest, most introspective and why not best Bon Jovi record in the past two decades.

YouTube user AmericanJackassI continues to post rare live bootleg footage online, this time releasing video of Bon Jovi's show on Oklahoma City, OK at the Myriad Convention Center on April 11th, 1989. Check out the complete show here:
"Lay Your Hands On Me"
"I'd Die For You"
"Wild in the Streets"
"You Give Love A Bad Name"

"Born To Be My Baby"
"Let It Rock"
"I'll Be There For You"
"Blood On Blood"
"Livin' On A Prayer"
"Ride Cowboy Ride"
"Wanted Dead or Alive"
"Bad Medicine"

The new Bon Jovi video for "Knockout" will premiere tonight at midnight (CET) exclusively on "Tidal". Until then you can watch the teaser here...

“When We Were Beautiful” was initially released in the fall of 2009 but it’s never too late to discover a good book filled with photos especially when it focuses on a band that it’s not famous for opening up in the press all these years. If I’m not mistaken, this must be the first official Bon Jovi book ever.

This book is essentially the companion to the documentary of the same name that was supervised by filmmaker/photographer Phil Griffin. In an unprecedented and surprising for all the Jovi fans, the New Jersey band gave unlimited access to Griffin during the “Lost Highway Tour” in 2008. Naturally, Griffin took advantage of this gesture and managed to capture Bon Jovi on tour, on the stage, backstage, in the hotel...all in all, captured everything (or almost everything) that went on during that tour. The lengthy and absolutely characteristic excerpts and comments by the four members reveal a fact that every hard core Bon Jovi fan knew yet some deliberately or not had chosen to ignore. The fact is that Bon Jovi is Jon’s vision with Tico, Dave & Richie following along on the ride and helping him realize his dream (which at a certain point became their dream, too).Jon Bon Jovi’s phrase: “this might not be a democracy but it’s definitely a team effort”, I think says it all. One more thing that becomes obvious right from the very begining is that Bon Jovi is not simply a band but a family with its members being right there when one needs the other.

So, don’t expect to find in this book many “call-in” posed photos and a tell-all autobiography. Bon Jovi opened up for the first time and they do it cautiously. This book is forwarded towards the avid, die-hard Bon Jovi fan that always needs more from his favorite band. Those who enjoyed the documentary will most likely embrace the book.
