There are many ways to get your rock ‘n’ roll on and one of the most popular is by going to see Bon Jovi live. The band has been rocking arenas since the 1980s and has made a name for itself as one of the biggest names in the industry. The group has sold millions of tickets in their illustrious career and continues to put on a show that will leave the crowd breathless. If you are looking for a good time with friends or family members this is definitely the show to go see.
With a lineup that includes Jon Bon Jovi, his brothers, drummer Tico Torres and bassist Phil X, the band has been able to bridge the gap between metal and pop music with great success. The group has become famous for its anthems that are reminiscent of the heyday of stadium rock. Its 15th album, 2020, was released in October of its namesake year and has been a huge hit with fans.
The tour for the album is the first Bon Jovi has embarked on since the coronavirus pandemic halted many concerts. It will travel through the Midwest and South in April before wrapping up in Nashville. Fans should expect the classic hits such as Livin’ on a Prayer, Runaway and You Give Love a Bad Name to be performed in full force by a group that still has plenty of energy.
In addition to the classics, the band has also been releasing new material that fans will enjoy hearing in person. Some of the songs from this period include the sombre ballad American Reckoning, written after the murder of George Floyd and dedicated to his daughter Gianna. It also includes a cover of The Who’s Won’t Get Fooled Again, which was recorded in honor of the victims of the Las Vegas shooting.
A concert film was also released in 2017 of the band’s This House is Not for Sale Tour that was performed at the Paramount Theatre in New Jersey and was aired in movie theaters around the country. The production was stripped down of the pyrotechnics and other visuals that usually accompany a concert to make it more like an actual in-person experience.
While the band has had some ups and downs over the years, it is hard to deny that Bon Jovi remains a top-notch act that can still pack a punch in arenas and stadiums around the world. The band has a long list of hits that will please any fan and will leave them wanting more. The only downside is that singer Jon Bon Jovi has lost some of his former vocal power and may not be able to belt out all of the anthems that are known and loved by fans. He still has his Hollywood smile and charisma that is sure to entertain fans though.
