Bon Jovi released another music video from their recent album “This House Is Not For Sale”, which was released on November 4th, for “The Devil’s In The Temple”. On the specific video you won’t see the band playing the song, but watching the filming of a music video!

“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.

Ex-Bon Jovi guitarist, Richie Sambora, had his turn to have a go at “Livin’ On A Prayer” at a wedding. It was his nephew’s, Shane Ahern, wedding that took place in Los Angeles, while nothing was planned. The reception’s DJ provided the guitar who was accompanied by Orianthi on vocals (who actually was peeking at her cell phone for the lyrics). In contrast with Jon, Richie didn’t see that he needed to much persuading to sing the song!

The clock showed 8:25pm and everything began!The band was on stage.The first notes of “The house is not for sale” rushed through the speakers and the party had just begun!

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.

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.

While many continue lamenting the departure of Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi, the band

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.

Bon Jovi released a “making of” video from their recent music videoclip for “This House Is Not For Sale”, which was shared publicly last week. The album with the same title, which is the band’s 14th is going to be released on October 12th through Island/UMG. John Sanks produced “This House Is Not For Sale”, who also worked with the band in 2005 for “Have A Nice Day”.
