The American rock band Bon Jovi formed in Sayreville, New Jersey, in 1983. The band consists of the singer Jon Bon Jovi, keyboardist David Bryan, drummer Tico Torres, guitarist Phil X and bassist Hugh McDonald. Their music has been played by millions of people worldwide.
In 2002, Bon Jovi released their eighth studio album, Bounce, and toured extensively to promote it. The group also re-recorded several of their most popular songs for the acoustic release This Left Feels Right, which was released in 2003 and accompanied by a DVD.
The band was almost as successful as they had been in the previous two years, and arguably topped their success in the early 1990s. However, their biggest commercial success came from their third studio album, Slippery When Wet, which sold more than 20 million copies worldwide. It featured three hit singles, two of which reached the top of the charts. The band continued to achieve great success with their subsequent albums.
The band released a new album in 2007 called ‘Lost Highway’. The album incorporated country music influences into the songs. After the release of the album, Bon Jovi continued their world tour, which became one of their most successful tours in history. The band earned over $227 million in ticket sales alone.
The band has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide and continues to tour as a successful band. They have released 16 studio albums, five compilation albums and three live albums. They have also released 58 music videos. The band has been together for more than three decades and has a vast catalog of music.
The group’s lineup has remained relatively stable throughout the years. Jon Bon Jovi was born in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, on March 2, 1962. He was the son of John Bongiovi, Sr. and Carol Sharkey. He attended Sayreville War Memorial High School. His third album, “Slippery When Wet”, became an international hit and earned the band a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Performance.
The band’s success and longevity helped the band enter the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in December 2017. The band won the fan vote by a margin of nearly one million votes. However, no details were available about the cause of death. Bon Jovi’s publicist did not respond to messages seeking comment.
Bon Jovi’s new album was partially successful. They toured Japan and Europe and gained mainstream press attention. Their name is now known worldwide and they have a legion of fans. Their next tour was in 2020, but the band delayed its release due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Before Bon Jovi rose to fame, the band members were plagued by personal problems. Richie Sambora married actress Heather Locklear in 1994 and the couple welcomed their daughter, Ava. However, the couple separated in the year 2006, and their marriage ended in 2007. After separating, the members of the band focused on their careers.
