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.
More bad news for Richie Sambora fans. Bon Jovi recently revealed that the guitarist will be sitting out the upcoming European and South African legs of their current ‘Because We Can’ tour, which kicks off on May 7.
You think you've got problems? Just be glad you weren't in Doc McGhee's shoes on April 25, 1988, when the famous manager -- whose clients at the time included Motley Crue and Bon Jovi -- was convicted of smuggling 40,000 pounds of marijuana into the United States from South America.
