It was about two months ago that I first discussed the Bon Jovi “This House Is Not For Sale” Tour and back then I mused that there were likely more dates coming.

Bon Jovi Unveils Career Spanning “17” LP Boxed Set

Though I still need to replace my long non-functioning turntable, I still have most of my records and love to share the news about any artists who are re-issuing their catalog on high-quality vinyl. Speaking frankly, there are so many of my friends and inner circle music peeps who are vinyl maniacs who even go on excursions for Record Store Day each year in the hopes of finding something limited and eventually classic. This press release below lines out the massive news about a comprehensive career boxed set for the one and only Bon Jovi. Check out the full on scoop and the provided images. I’ll return at the close with a brief thought or two. I should warn you that since there are a LOT of albums in this set that the press copy is rather long. You might want to get a fresh cup of coffee before you begin.

The Press Release:
With over 130 million albums sold, an extensive catalog of hit anthems, and nearly 3000 concerts performed in 50 countries for over 35 million fans, Bon Jovi is simply one of the world’s most successful bands, ever. As their new album, This House Is Not For Sale, debuts at #1 in the US, Australia and Japan and in the Top 5 in 54 other countries, Island/UMe announces that a comprehensive vinyl box set of 25-LPs, entitled Bon Jovi: The Albums, will be released in February 2017. It will include all Bon Jovi albums and additional titles (as outlined below) for premium collectors. The box set release will coincide with the kick-off of the band’s This House Is Not For Sale Tour in North America. Check out the contents of the career-spanning box set in the unboxing trailer here and pre-order now: https://UMe.lnk.to/BonJoviBox

Alternately, Island/UMe has made every Bon Jovi album from the past thirty-two years available for individual purchase on high-quality vinyl now. Fans can purchase individual albums now at https://UMe.lnk.to/BonJoviLPs
Every vinyl album preserves the original look and sound of the originals – all LP jackets are exact replicas of the original album cover and songs have been mastered to the band’s specifications to ensure exceptional audio quality. There are also plenty of “firsts” – this will be the first time Bon Jovi’s albums from the 2000’s have been pressed in any territory before, others will receive their first-ever U.S. vinyl releases, while many are being pressed for the first time in decades.

Bon Jovi Announces “This House Is Not For Sale” Tour For 2017

Now I must apologize for getting this one out to you a few days after it first hit but I am super tied up with the happenings over at the 2016 NY Comic Con but here we are now. Just the other day Jon Bon Jovi announced the bands 2017 touring run for the “This House Is Not For Sale” album and I’ll let the press release say the rest.

The Press Release:
October 5, 2016 – Grammy Award®-winning band, Bon Jovi today announced that the This House Is Not for Sale Tour, presented by Live Nation, will kick off in February 2017. Hitting arenas across the U.S., the iconic rock band will present anthems, fan favorites, and new hits from their upcoming 14th studio album, This House Is Not for Sale (out Nov. 4 on Island/UMG). As an added bonus, fans will receive a physical copy of This House Is Not For Sale with every ticket purchased.

This will be the band’s first outing since Bon Jovi’s 2013 Because We Can World Tour, which 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). Bon Jovi’s touring legacy will be recognized Nov. 9th with the 2016 “Legend of Live” award at the Billboard Touring Conference & Awards.

As Bon Jovi rocks October to launch This House Is Not for Sale, the title track is already inside the Top Ten of the AC Radio Chart – it is Bon Jovi’s highest debut on that chart to date. Appearances/features are set with The Ellen DeGeneres Show (airing today), ABC’s Good Morning America, Nightline, Charlie Rose, Howard Stern, People and Billboard Magazine. On the road, the TIDAL X: Bon Jovi series brings Bon Jovi to four historic venues to perform live listening parties to reveal the album, start to finish, in New Jersey (Count Basie Theatre was held on Oct. 1), London (Palladium London, Oct. 10), Toronto (Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Oct. 17) and for the first time on Broadway for a TIDAL livestream (Barrymore Theatre, Oct. 20). This will be Bon Jovi’s first major release since What About Now (2013), the band’s 3rd consecutive multi-platinum album to debut at #1 on the Top 200 (Lost Highway in 2007, and The Circle in 2009).

Bon Jovi’s “Slippery When Wet” Still Rocking At 30 Years (1986-2016)

There are a LOT of Music Milestones to discuss with you when it comes to 1986 as it was a really great year for the Metal and Hard Rock side of the fence. For me personally I felt that this was an exciting year to be a fan of music because I was heavily into the live music scene and was actively hitting rehearsal spaces with other local musicians to jam out and hopefully secure some gigs. Around this time, I was super into the Hard Rock side more than the eventual more Extreme Metal that I would find myself appreciating and one of the albums I was loving was the third release by New Jersey sons Bon Jovi in “Slippery When Wet”. Today is the thirtieth anniversary of this musical body of work and I have to say that I still love listening to it even after so much time.
