On Aug. 18, 1986, Bon Jovi released 'Slippery When Wet,' the album that would make them international superstars -- but not before needing three wildly different attempts to get the album artwork finished.
Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora isn't currently working with the band, but that doesn't mean he isn't working. Sambora surprised everyone by dropping the link to a new song on Twitter recently. 'Come Back as Me' came on Monday, during a conversation with his followers.
If you're planning to hire a babysitter so that you can attend Bon Jovi's concert at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. on July 20, be prepared to give them a little extra that night. The Foxboro Board of Selectman has extended the band's curfew from 11:15 to midnight.
In addition to barbecues, vacations and oppressive humidity, July always brings with it a spell of best-of-the-year-so-far lists. The newest one of interest to classic rock fans reveals that Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen and the Rolling Stones have taken win, place and show in the list of the Top Grossing Concert Acts for the first half of 2013.
Bon Jovi's 2013 tour has been marred by the absence of Richie Sambora (and all the rumors and public feuding), but for the band's true fans, it's still all about the music -- and at Wednesday night's (June 19) concert in Gdansk, Poland, it provided the soundtrack to one Jovi-lovin' couple's engagement.
Things are pretty bad for the Spanish economy right now, but rather than avoid playing there altogether, the guys in Bon Jovi have opted to give their dinero-strapped fans a break by giving up their own fees for an upcoming Madrid concert.
The boys in Bon Jovi sure are keeping busy this year. Fresh from a string of European concerts, the Jersey-based rockers have announced a run of North American tour dates this fall. These dates will comprise the second leg of the North American shows that began in February and ran through April before the group headed overseas.
After laying low for a few weeks, Richie Sambora has decided to speak up about his recent departure from the Bon Jovi lineup -- and it sounds like fans may need to start preparing for the possibility that he may never return.
