The Bon Jovi Tour

Since their debut album in 1984 Bon Jovi have played countless arenas and stadiums throughout the world. Their concert shows are always packed with excitement and energy with a healthy dose of classic hits like “Livin’ On A Prayer”. Throughout the years Bon Jovi have amped up their tours with new material and also with a few special guest performances from other artists.

Jon Bon Jovi has made it his life’s work to take his band all over the world to play rock music and give fans an unforgettable experience at a live show. The New Jersey natives have sold millions of albums and have earned a reputation as one of the most popular bands in history. Their success has come from following a simple strategy: write well-crafted rock songs with a pop sheen, tour relentlessly, and always exceed the expectations of their fans.

As the band grew in popularity it was obvious that they would need to tour constantly to keep up with demand. It was a lifestyle which physically took its toll on the members of the group who had come to be known as ‘The Jersey Syndicate’. The endless schedule burned them out and by the end of 1990 they had reached a point where they needed to pause for breath.

The spring of 2002 saw the recording process start for the next Bon Jovi studio album ‘Bounce’ but it would not be without its setbacks. Bass player Alec John Such announced that he was leaving the band and it was at this time that Bon Jovi recruited session bassist Hugh McDonald to join them. It was not long before the first demo tracks were recorded at Bearsville studios in upstate New York.

During these sessions the band also wrote songs that were to be included on their latest tour called ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’. The final track to be recorded was a version of the old BJ hit ‘Runaway’ which featured a guest appearance by singer/songwriter KT Tunstall. KT is no stranger to Bon Jovi and has been a friend of the band for many years.

It is not known yet what songs will be included on the next tour and which cities are to be visited. One thing that is for sure though is that the band will be announcing the dates soon so make sure you check back regularly for updates.

As the new year starts the band will be hard at work on their 2024 tour. With the recent criticism of the quality of their live performances, Jon has been trying to improve the standard at each show. It will be interesting to see if they can raise the bar even higher for their fans in the future.
