Bon Jovi Biography
Second only to Bruce Springsteen as New Jersey’s biggest musical export, Bon Jovi transcended the 80s hair metal scene to become one of the most successful rock groups of all time. After performing together in various local bands, John Bongiovi and keyboardist David Bryan first hooked up with guitarist Richie Sambora, bassist Alec John Such and drummer Tico Torres in 1983 and after signing to Mercury Records, issued their self-titled debut a year later. Following support slots with Kiss and Scorpions, the quintet released 1985’s 7800° Fahrenheit and Bon Jovi tickets for their first series of headline shows. But their commercial breakthrough arrived in 1986 with Slippery When Wet, a blockbuster of a record which spent eight weeks at the top of the album charts, spawned two number ones (“Livin’ On A Prayer,” “You Give Love A Bad Name”) and helped the band to gross over $28m in Bon Jovi tickets sales for its accompanying tour. 1988’s New Jersey produced the most top ten hits from a hard rock album in Billboard history, including a further two chart-toppers (“Bad Medicine,” “I’ll Be There For You”), while Bon Jovi tickets sold out completely for their homecoming show at Giants Stadium. Following a short break to focus on their solo careers, the band returned in 1992 with the more mature Keep The Faith before achieving their biggest-selling hit with “Always,” the lead single from 1994 compilation, Cross Road. After replacing Such with Hugh McDonald and releasing 1995’s These Days, the band took a lengthy self-imposed hiatus, eventually reuniting in 2000 with Crush. Buoyed by anthemic lead single, “It’s My Life,” the album introduced the group to a whole new generation, resulting in over 1.1 million fans buying Bon Jovi tickets for its accompanying tour. The band continued to diversify their sound throughout the decade, tackling 9/11 on 2002’s harder-edged Bounce, reworking their back catalogue on 2003’s acoustic-based This Left Feels Right and venturing into country with 2005’s Have A Nice Day. A collaboration with Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles also earned the group their first ever Grammy Award and became the first song by a rock act to top the country charts, while in 2007, they played ten consecutive nights at the newly-opened Newark Prudential Center in support of their tenth album, Lost Highway. 2009’s The Circle saw them revisit their rock n roll roots, while in 2013, they released both What About Now and Bon Jovi tickets for a 94-date Because We Can world tour.
