Jon Bon Jovi – A special message to Mr. Larry Gogan Irish music legend as he celebrates 40 years on radio. Listen below.
‘THIS HOUSE IS NOT FOR SALE TOUR’
First tour in 6 years
Second show added due to phenomenal demand, Sunday 16th June
One of the world’s great rock bands hits stadiums in 2019
Back in their Irish home from home:
Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 June , 2019 | R.D.S Stadium, Dublin
After thousands of sold out shows, it’s clear – Bon Jovi = One Wild Night.
One of the planet’s biggest rock bands, Bon Jovi announce their return to Ireland, continuing a triumphant world tour that has visited the USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina and Chile and will hit Japan and Australia later in 2018. A huge year of 80 shows and counting has also seen them inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Their This House Is Not For Sale European Tour is set to be another blockbuster.
Bon Jovi will play the R.D.S. Stadium, Dublin on Saturday 15 June, 2019 (subject to licence). Something of a spiritual home for the band in Ireland, they sold out two consecutive nights at the R.D.S. in June 2011 and played there 3 times before that.
“Those huge shows, tens of thousands of people all together as one, that’s what we do,” says Jon Bon Jovi.
The success of latest album This House Is Not For Sale, which debuted at the top of charts around the world, was the culmination of a tempestuous period in the band’s 3-decade history. A defiant statement, launched in a series of intimate shows in 2016, the album became the jumping off point for a new era for Jon Bon Jovi and his band.
And that band has evolved since their last global trip. 2013’s Because We Can World Tour, was their third tour in six years to be ranked the #1 top-grossing tour in the world (a feat accomplished by only The Rolling Stones previously).
This will be their first Irish show since 2013 when the band played at Slane Castle.
The band has evolved since their last global trip, 2013’s Because We Can Tour, and features Bon Jovi originals David Bryan and Tico Torres alongside Jon, plus long time bassist Hugh McDonald, co-producer and co-songwriter John Shanks, multi-instrumentalist Everett Bradley, and lead guitarist Phil X, who joined the band on that 2013 tour.
“We’ve become a new, rejuvenated Bon Jovi,” says Jon, “A refreshed line up that kills every night. We sound better than ever and we’re enjoying every minute. We are out there as a band, feeding off each other and the fans, having the time of our lives all over again.”
This tour places the spotlight firmly on the music and the songs, the body of work that has propelled Bon Jovi to over 130 million record sales. The band is ready with a choice of around 95 songs that they can change up every night, but have also been playing their all time classics like “You Give Love A Bad Name”, “It’s My Life”, “Wanted Dead Or Alive”, “Bad Medicine”, “Who Says You Can’t Go Home”, “Keep the Faith”, “Always”, “Have A Nice Day” and of course, “Livin’ On A Prayer.”
