Bon Jovi is best known as the rock band and pride ofNew Jerseythat gave the world Slippery When Wet, an album that took them from perennial opening act to a couple a decades as a headliner with the mere anticipation of Bon Jovi tickets necessitating stories in local newspapers. This avid touring group will be around again on the Because We Can – The Tour, a trip named after the first single from the upcoming album, What About Now.
The group is now comprised of Jon Bon Jovi as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Richie Sambora as the lead guitarist and sometimes backup singer, Tico Torres as the drummer, and David Bryan as the keyboardist and backup singer. Alec John Such had played bass during the release of Slippery When Wet andNew Jersey, but he has been gone for almost two decades now. In his place Hugh McDonald is the replacement bassist and unofficial fifth member of the group.
Bon Jovi survived the departure of one of the original members and has thrived. They have done so as glam rock has passed. The group that wore spandex and had shoulder length hair when singing “Runaway” and “Livin’ On a Prayer” cut the hair to an appropriate mid-length level and has replaced raw amps with a more tempered style that has deftly made this simply a rock band. The moment this became evident was when the remaining four band members took the stage at a little MTV session called Unplugged. Unplugged would become a gigantic hit and Bon Jovi would continue to thrive, especially on tour.
These tours have taken their toll, and, when a hiatus is not the answer, the group begins to experiment with different styles, at one point bringing Nashville country into the recording studio for Lost Highway. Bon Jovi concert tickets remain rock tickets, especially after the return to the genre with The Circle. These concerts are going to include an eclectic set list for the four legs of the Because We Can – The Tour.
