The This House Is Not For Sale Tour has already received fan and critical acclaim, with its first North American leg grossing an estimated $47 million and its South American leg grossing nearly $40 million. Atlanta Journal-Constitution raved, “(The tour) solidifies their standing as one of rock’s most resilient acts.” Creative Loafing Tampa said, “Bon Jovi leaves 18,000 screaming, standing fans shot through the heart…” while the Los Angeles Daily News reported that “JBJ shook the stage from the start to end with energy and enthusiasm, and he kept that energy rolling with a voice in tip top shape…” The St. Louis Post-Dispatch said “Bon Jovi doesn’t miss a beat…” and the Toronto Sun enthused, “It was anthemic Bon Jovi at its best…”
The This House Is Not for Sale Tour was Bon Jovi’s first outing since the band’s 2013 Because We Can World Tour. 2013’s tour was their fourth in six years to be ranked the No. 1 top-grossing tour in the world (a feat accomplished by only The Rolling Stones previously) with a total of $259.5 million. Bon Jovi also earned the No. 1 grossing worldwide tour in 2010 for The Circle Tour, with $201 million total, and 2008’s Lost Highway tour, which earned $210.6 million. Bon Jovi’s touring legacy was recognized with the “Legend of Live” award at the Billboard Touring Conference & Awards prior to the kick-off of The This House Is Not for Sale Tour.
Bon Jovi released This House Is Not for Sale (Island Records) on Nov. 4, 2016 which debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart, giving the rock band its sixth U.S. No. 1. Worldwide, the album hit No. 1 in Australia and Austria; No. 2 in Spain and Switzerland; No. 3 in Canada and Germany; and hit the top 10 in Belgium, the Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Scotland and the United Kingdom. This House Is Not for Sale was Bon Jovi’s first major release since What About Now (2013), the band’s third consecutive multi-platinum album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 (Lost Highway in 2007, and The Circle in 2009).
ABOUT BON JOVI: Over an illustrious career spanning more than three decades since their formation in 1983, Bon Jovi has earned their place among global rock royalty. With over 130 million albums sold worldwide, an extensive catalog of hit anthems, more than 2,800 concerts performed in 50 countries for more than 35 million fans, and ticket sales grosses well over $1 billion in around the world in just the past decade, Bon Jovi is the consummate rock and roll band.
Bon Jovi will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in April 2018.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Well, if this tour interests you at all you better get on point for the tickets because Bon Jovi always sells out his tours and rather quickly. We’ve already laid out some congratulations about the RARHOF induction to come and have long felt that he deserved it. I’ve been a fan since the very first album and bought my copy when it was brand new on the shelves at a place called Bondy’s which means nothing to so many of you based on just how long its been closed. The funny part about being a fan for that long is how I only ever saw him once in concert which had to be around the “Have A Nice Day” tour. I’ve never been press at one of his concerts and would love to be to check his name off of the musical legends to do list that I keep. My own friends are divided on his shows nowadays since there are those who will go to five appearances because they love him and there are others who don’t like the parting of the ways with him and Richie Sambora. The only constant is change in the world of Rock and Roll so I wonder what you all think about this tour. You can let me know down in the comments section below. I hope to be at either the Prudential Center or the Garden for one of these shows.
