Bon Jovi Tickets
When members of the rock band Bon Jovi started out in 1983 in Sayreville, NJ, they likely never realized how much of an influence they would have on music and their fans during their decades in the industry. On January 21, 1984, they released Bon Jovi and have since gone on to sell over 100 million albums across the globe and have received numerous awards and nominations. The band’s appeal spans generations, and fans continue to pack venues to see members Jon Bon Jovi, David Bryan, Phil X, Hugh McDonald and Tico Torres perform popular songs that still bring audiences to their feet.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction
After 35 years and a previous 2011 nomination, Bon Jovi was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018. At the event, the current members reunited with former members Alec John Such, who left the band in 1994, and Richie Sambora, who left almost two decades later in 2013. It wasn’t until the Slippery When Wet album was released on August 18, 1986, that the now-former hair band made major strides in gaining worldwide attention with the song “Wanted Dead or Alive.” The songs from that album, “Livin’ on a Prayer” and “You Give Love a Bad Name,” landed on Billboard’s Top Songs of the ’80s chart. Also on the chart were “Bad Medicine,” “I’ll Be There For You” and “Born To Be My Baby,” all of which are from their New Jersey album, which was released on September 19, 1988.
