With their trademark mix of hard rock, pop, and glam metal, along with classics like “Livin’ on a Prayer” and “It’s My Life,” Bon Jovi has gone down as one of the most recognized rock bands of all time. Since the early 1980s, the group has released 13 studio albums, won numerous awards, and sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands in history. Proving their versatility, Bon Jovi worked with country star Jennifer Nettles on “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” which earned the Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals. In 2009, lead singer Jon Bon Jovi and former guitarist Richie Sambora were inducted in the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the band as a whole was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018. Both longtime and new fans alike can’t wait to get their hands on tickets to see this legendary group live.
Lead singer Jon Bon Jovi got his start in music at the age of 13 playing piano for his first band, Raze. He continued performing live music with various other bands and began recording demos in his early 20s. After a gig singing jingles for a local radio station, Bon Jovi was given the chance to sing the song “Runaway,” which was included on a compilation album of homegrown talent. The song soon began getting airplay in the New York area and Bon Jovi started looking for musicians to fill out his band. They released their self-titled debut album in 1984 and began opening shows for the likes of Scorpions and Kiss. They saw moderate success with their first 2 albums, but were thrust into the international spotlight with Slippery When Wet in 1986. The album spent 8 weeks on top of the Billboard 200 and the first 2 singles, “Livin’ on a Prayer” and “You Give Love a Bad Name,” both hit number 1 on the Hot 100. Over more than 30 years, the band has proved their staying power, releasing album after album and touring every couple of years. Throughout 2018, the band is back on the road with the North American leg of the This House Is Not for Sale Tour.
