Just noticed we don't have a Bon Jovi thread! :(

So decided to make one. For those of you who didn't know - heres some news on Bon Jovi

Bon Jovi's new album is due for release on the 19th September internationally. Though the album is currently untitled -the track titles have been released;

1) HAVE A NICE DAY
2) I WANNA BE LOVED
2) WELCOME TO WHEREVER YOU ARE
4) WHO SAYS YOU CAN'T GO HOME?
5) LAST MAN STANDING
6) BELLS OF FREEDOM
7) WILDFLOWERS
8) ONE LAST CIGARETTE
9) I AM
10) COMPLICATED
11) NOVOCAINE
12) STORY OF MY LIFE

The album will also be supported by a world tour. The band have said that it will be a guitar heavy rock record, more like Slippery When Wet and New Jersey than more recent albums Crush and Bounce.

They have also said there will be no ballads on the new album.

:cheers:

So. Who here likes Bon Jovi?

Yeah no way in hell I'm ever watching another lifetime movie... I saw one with Ben Afleck (sp) in it, apparently it was his first movie, but it was so horible I lost all respect for the channel.

"100 000 000 (One hundred million) Bon Jovi fans can't be wrong"

wonder how well the new album will do...

06-18-2005, 07:40 AM
not as well as slippery when wet, i can tell you that

slippery when wet was originlly called wanted dead or alive, have you seen how much better the cover looked before they changed it.

with the slippery cover-

1. Doc, their manager said they looked like idiots on the front - so he told them they couldn;t have that cover

2. then they had a plain photoshoot- just with the boys in jeans and stuff- jon liked it- but the cover artist dude made the boarder PINK.... so jon refused to have it

3. in the end- the album was about to be released with the pink (lol) cover and doc told jon if he found a better cover -they'd use it- if he didn't make it in time- they'd use the pink one

so jon grabbed a black rubbish bag, poured water on it and wrote 'slippery when wet' on it- and told the photographer to take a picture :S

so- thats why its like that. It was that or pink- i'll see if i can find a pic of that

Depends how big a fan you are

They do put on a good show and the atmosphere is excellent

(Many hot girls ;) )

First time I only knew a few songs

Second time I knew a lot more but I was in seated :sad: never go to a gig sitting down....it sucks

The second time was only a year or two later, so the atmosphere wasnt as good seeing as they had just been here and the screen was tiny.

One Wild Nigh tour was my first ever gig, so it was something special ;)

I like Bon Jovi. Wanted Dead Or Alive has a great balance of acoustic guitars (between the 6 and 12 stings acoustic) then the electric kinda explodes in the song. I love when that solo starts. Richie Sambora is one of the best in the business, though I'm not the biggest fan of his playing stye.

Is cutting your hair selling out? I think it's more like cutting your hair because you can. Hair metal isn't all about "hair". I wish they still had long hair because it is who they are, but they didn't sell out. Come on dude.

Every Bon Jovi album but the first album is "good" or "great". End of Story.

Carmencita_Jovi
07-29-2005, 05:35 AM
^pretty much all albums have been awesome-

but the boys rekon this new album will be more like slippery and new jersey (their GREATEST albums) than crush.

crush was great but it was just a bit too pop for me. the new albums more hard rock

Bon Jovi... Love - hate relationship!!!

I love their old stuff, but hated their hairdues, now I'm not so thrilled by the new stuff, but I like their hair... jk!

But the funny thing about Bon Jovi is, if you say you like them, people start to put them down etc..
We have a Bon Jovi cover band called "Bad Medicine" and evertime they go to perform somewhere and people see a poster - they're like: OMG, Bon Jovi is soo 80's and bla bla bla"
BUT, when they get on stage and rock the house - everybody sings along and has a great time...

I don't get that... If you like a band, you know their songs - and like them too... why put them down? It's like it isn't cool to like Bon Jovi and therefore all the poser kids doesn't want to stand out of the crowd!!!

I mostly like Bon Jovi - and like to sing along too!!

Edit - - - there was this guy on the first page, I hope you misspelled the song on purpose... You do know that it's : "You give love a BAD name", right?

08-24-2005, 10:32 AM
I posted to this a long time ago, I'm still here though.

Yeah I didn't really hear too much about Bon Jovi and stop following them after they released the Box Set. which i have.

I love the box set, the song about Kurt's daughter is beautiful.

I'm happy to see that a new album will be out. I've heard every Bon Jovi song at least 3 times. I had all the albums, I currently have all albums besides Slippery When Wet, and Self-titled

They all rock, I'm looking up to this one. I personally liked Bounce a lot. It sold the worst, but it was their best debuted album... weird huh?

I'll probably pick it up when it comes out, if I have the money at that time.

I like the song titles alright, but the cover art is alittle stupid I must say and I'm a big Jovi fan.

Yes, the box set was awesome, Although I would have preferred more material from the 80s other than a bunch of outtakes from Keep The Faith and so on. It's hard to believe that some songs never made the final albums, like Garageland and Radio Saved My Life Tonght. Lets not forget Edge of A Broken Heart!

Thanks for the heads up. Now, to be honest, I wasn't quite impressed by the songs. When (Jon?) Bon Jovi said it would be "Big guitars, catchy choruses", and "ballad free", I didn't quite expect this. Personally, I think most of the songs have lost the Bon Jovi sound, with the exception of Have A Nice Day, Last Man Standing, and MAYBE one or two others. Maybe it was because they teamed up with John Shanks, I don't know, they just sound a bit too.... pop. Lyrics aren't too great either, IMHO. Most of the songs i could imagine Hillary Duff or someone similiar singing it. Maybe I'm just not into mid tempo rockers:rolleyes:

I just hope this album doesn't fall flat on its face, as with Crush, OWN, and Bounce. (lets not get started with TLFR)

This is just my opinion.


P.S. To i_luv_slash, yes it was about Kurt's daughter.


:peace: :rolleyes: :( :) ;)

I think this album will do better then bounce and tlfr. It's getting more radio play, advertisement and better reviews!

btw i don't think crush fell flat on its face! i think its my life, just older and a few others actually got the band a whole new generation of fans (including me!)

keep in mind u only listened to a minute of every song! don't pass judgement yet!!! :)

I just hope that they choose wisely for the upcoming singles following HAND. I think it might be hard to decide what will follow such a classic song. A great example, again, is Bounce.

Ok, Crush didn't do that bad, I guess. It's My Life did bring in a whole generation of fans, just like you and I, and Just Older became sort of an anthem.... It's just too bad that you don't hear much of the other singles, like Say It Isn't So, and Thank You For Loving Me ect.

Again, you are correct, I cannot judge them by just one minute. It's just that, it didn't leave a good first impression on me. When they had the clips of the Box Set before it came out, I was like "Wow, this stuff is awesome!" This time, not so much. When it comes out Sept. 20th I will tell you what I think:D

I know exactly what you mean. Ive always said i loved Bon Jovi and people are like "what? are you kidding?" Then Living on a Prayer or Bad Name comes on and everyones singing along, it kinda bugs me how people always put them down.

Anyway, i havent been here a long time, and ive never even seen a Bon Jovi fan here let along a thread! So im thrilled to see this, might be posting a lot more. Looks like im not the the biggest fan here, although i could be a close 2nd :D

To be honest im not too keen on their new stuff, Crush and Bounce in my opinion were way too poppy, and Richie Sambora didnt shine at all. But hey its to be expected, everyone runs out of ideas.

He was the reason i started playing guitar and his solo's are just amazing. You must own the Live 1995 vid? Awesome isnt it!

I'll definatly be buying their new album, and hope that it is as "rocky" as they say it will be. Cant wait to hear some new Sambora solo's.

Anyway good to see some fellow Jovi fans! I'll be seeing them if they come to London ! :D

Hey Carmencita sure you can have my signature! Spread the joy :p

You got Richie's solo albums too? I prefer SITT by far, Undiscovered Soul doesnt really do it for me :(

Who cares he's still the man :D

Talking of signatures i just listened to Bed of Roses on my ipod :) One of Richie's best solos i think.

For all those rockers out there who still have their dodgy old, busted copy of Slippery When Wet and need a new one/ those who never got it and those who can't get enough of that album:

BON JOVI ROCK CLASSIC 'SLIPPERY WHEN WET' ISSUED IN DUAL DISK FORMAT FEATURING CD/DVD WITH 5.1 SURROUND SOUND AND MUSIC VIDEOS

A quintessential album of popular rock, and one of the '80s biggest sellers, Bon Jovi's SLIPPERY WHEN WET recalls that decade with an audio/video release in the new dual disc format. SLIPPERY WHEN WET (Island/Mercury/UMe), released September 20, 2005, presents he original album in stereo on the CD side and in 5.1 Surround Sound and high-resolution stereo on the DVD side. The latter also includes the music videos for "You Give Love A Bad Name," "Livin' On A Prayer," Wanted Dead or Alive," "Never Say Goodbye" and "Wild In The Streets."

The release follows the success of late 2004's 100,000,000 BON JOVI FANS CAN'T BE WRONG..., a mammoth box set comprised largely of previously unreleased recordings from the band's vast archive. With SLIPPERY WHEN WET originally issued in 1986 and Bon Jovi debuting its latest album, HAVE A NICE DAY -- also on September 20 -- the albums booken nearly 20 years of a truly epic career in rock. Certified 12 times platinum, SLIPPERY WHEN WET earned a prestigious Diamond Award in 1995.

The group's landmark album was produced by Bruce Fairbairn, engineered and mixed by Bob Rock and recorded in Vancouver, British Columbia. SLIPPERY WET WET was the band's third album, after 1984's BON JOVI and 1985's 7800 FAHRENHEIT.

SLIPPERY WHEN WET was the fulfillment of the band's dream. The album reached #1, as did the singles "You Give Love A Bad Name" and "Livin' On A Prayer." Also peaking in the Top 10 was "Wanted Dead or Alive." All three songs became musical touchstones. "Never Say Goodbye" became a Top 20 Mainstream Rock hit. The album's other tracks included "I'd Die For You," "Without Love," Raise Your Hands," "Social Disease" and "Let It Rock."

In Bon Jovi's triple decade career, the band has sold more than 100 million units worldwide and performed more than 2,500 concerts in 50 countries for more than 32 million fans. HAVE A NICE DAY, the group's ninth studio album, will be released September 20.


-So there you Have it folks. Slippery is being re-released! Who's gettin it? (Gosh knows i am!!!)

nope, not a seafm that i know of. then again, i gave up on radio stations a while ago, most of it is just crappy new stuff and the Australian rock from the 80's, which i mostly hate.

my guess is that they assume youre a girl because you have jovi in your ug name.

slippery when wet is the only bon jovi album id think of getting, but for me theyre enjoyable enough on the odd occasions.


wow, i should really learn to shut the fuck up. i couldnt help myself from ranting :(

Dry County forums. Thought so. They're VERY cynical and critical and not very nice. That board brings out the worst in people.

lol - don't get me wrong - i'm on it too - but the bj.com and backstage forums members are alot friendlier!

Good luck on your search for the single BJ4life - it won't be in like coles- but it'll be in big w's/kmarts/target....

Welcome to Wherever you are filmclip shooting is finnished.

Ok, I'm listening to the full tracks right now (Check the Dry County Forums) and am impressed by the first few songs. I'll update you after I've listened to all of them. Sounds good though.

Edit:

Ok, I've listened to them all. There aren't really any dissappointing tracks on the CD, and the order flows well. There still seem to be a few songs, like One Last Cigarette, that seem to be a bit to popish for Bon Jovi. The first three songs are awesome. Have A Nice Day is a great rock opener. I Wanna Be Loved and Welcome to Wherever You Are are quality tracks that i'm looking forward to hearing live. Also, for those who think that the duet with Jennifer Nettles is gonna be too country, it's not. It's a great way to end the CD, for the Canada/US version anyways. Overall, I'm fairly happy with the turnout. Now, all I need to do is buy the album and find the singles.:rolleyes:

Carmencita_Jovi
09-29-2005, 03:08 AM
whoot!!! It's all happenin!

Around the world, sales results indicate an equally impressive first week. HAVE A NICE DAY was certified platinum overnight in Japan, and enters at #1, making Bon Jovi one of only three international acts to achieve three # 1 albums in that country (Beatles, Bay City Rollers).

The album also debuts at #1 in Australia, Holland, Austria, Germany and Canada, and #2 in the U.K., while the song, ?Have A Nice Day? is #6 on the Billboard Europe chart and #14 most-played on the European airplay chart. Overall, the single is top 10 in Australia, Austria, Germany, Holland, Italy, Japan, Norway, Spain, Switzerland and the U.K.

They have also sold about 202 000 copies of Have a Nice Day as of this week!!!

I haven't gotten sww dualdisk either - can't find it!

will have to keep looking!

Sorry, I hate to be one of these merciless bashers, but seriously, bon jovi isn't good. i've never heard anyone do a cover, never blare their music, walk down the street with a jovi shirt, say that they are a great band in a meaningful descussion. And another thing, the majority of their fan base is women. That isn't a good reputation for a couple of dudes who wanna play rock music. Sorry but it's my opinion.

Carmencita_Jovi
10-04-2005, 03:36 AM
I've heard many people do covers, always blare their music, most of my shirts are Bon Jovi and i talk about their work in meaningful discussion.

And i gotta tell you, alot of bands have mostly femail fanbase like motley crue, audio slave, and inxs!:S

Isn't about their fanbase, silly! Its only if you like them! if u don't got nothin nice to say then shove it

Is anyone going to one of the upcoming shows? I think the american, european and dublin tour dates have been announced so far

bon jovi are ok, dry county is a quality song. they're a bit predictable now. i can guarantee you that the first single off their next album will be a song about his life and how he's going to live it. you heard it here first!

sorry for the double post - but this is new news -

Bon Jovi sold 500 000 tickets on their first weekend of sales. pretty cool.

by the way - latest about the australian tour (read this iluvslash) Richie Sambora *DID* ring up Triple M, the australian radio station saying that the band were coming. Their record label have recently said that his declaration was premature (and immature) and things aren't finalised and won't be for a few months at least.

:(

Oh, well.... Universal have said that it is VERY likely they will come tho. Any body else recently gotten/gonna get euro/asian/usa tickets to see a date?

Richie Sambora-he's a very under-rated guiatrist :( why??? bec. people intend to look at th singer (Jon) first and can't keep their eyes of him( :rolleyes: he's one of the greatest guitarist that rock the past until now...( their new Have a nice day album...) He play's the guitar with every ounce of his feelings!!!! (i know many of you didn't know that or even it's the first time you have heard of him...) also whatch him play live (even on dvd...i did) the first time i saw him play (Bon Jovi live from london dvd) he was amazing!!!! i never thought that Bon Jovi had such a great guitarist!!! try to know more about him....(google..) and maybe download a video of him playing live...you'll see.....

Yes, the sound is much clearer and there's been some additional stuff added to the songs. It was deffinitely worth buying! Livin' On A Prayer is almost a whole minute longer!

oh Yeah, one thing I don't like is that they used the new versions from the dualdisk with the music videos. I was hoping they'd keep the original music with the videos, but, it still sounds alright.

10-12-2005, 07:38 PM
Well, today I found a treasure (to me). I finally found the Songs Dirty Little Secret, Unbreakable, and These Open Arms. To top that, it was at a very good price lol! These three songs, in my opinion, are better than some songs on HAND. It's too bad that Bon Jovi pulled them from the actual album. I think Dirty little secret would have been a successful single, better than Welcome To Wherever You Are and Who Says.

even if they did come here, the tickets would be reall expensive. apparantly they vary from 70-135 POUNDS!!! and thats in POUNDS!!!!

I know this only too well. He was the reason i started playing guitar and will always be my idol. The live from london dvd is amazing. The last solo in Always is one of his best solo's ever. How he comes up with all this new stuff when they play live makes him even better.

Too bad he is so under rated and will never be an icon, because as you say, most people only look at Jon, and even call him Bon Jovi, when infact Bon Jovi is the name of the band.


Has anyone else here bought tickets from ticketmaster.com ? When i go to track my order it says theres a problem. Im getting rather worried seeming as i spent about 170 on two tickets!!

No Bon Jovi isn't shred, but this is an 80's ROCK, shred & progressive forum.

Carmencita_jovi, that's great that you have all the albums! :) I'll probably be flamed for this, seeing as it's not affiliated with Jon or the Band, but Jon Bon jovi's (then John Bongiovi) Power Session Demos are starting to really grow on me. some of them are crap but some sound like signature Bon Jovi songs, like Don't Do That To Me Anymore, Hollywood Dreams, and that karaoke version of Runaway. ;) You can really hear that, as not yet a rock superstar, Jon was really putting effort into his demos. Hey, I'll take some of them demos over a lot of tracks from Crush, OWN, and Bounce.

See ya later....

I was just in a little 80's hair metal/hard rock group that played for a large school function [I won't go into details, but it's a big fundraiser/concert] and we played "You Give Love a Bad Name." That was a great choice of song, and especially great as a first song of the set. That, and I soloed on it...so of course it was a great song.

okay - news news news:

Seeing as the American Leg of the Have a Nice Day tour is almost over - heres an update on whats gonna happen with the EURO TOUR:

NICKELBACK has been confirmed and announced as the Support Act for BON JOVI's HAVE A NICE DAY tour in EUROPE this late Spring/early Summer! :eek:
(I kinda like nickelback - and they'd suit Bon Jovi imo)

and also some more random stuff:

TARGET stores in the U.S. will be carrying an exclusive CD of love songs that will be available during the Valentine's Day retail season (in some stores it might even be on the stands already.) It is called SONGS IN THE KEY OF RED 2. It is a complication CD of songs by many artists. BON JOVI gave TARGET usage of the song "WILDFLOWER" from the HAVE A NICE DAY CD. It is the standard version of the song - no variations - but for those Bon Jovi fans who collect all things Bon Jovi, add this one to the collection! :confused: (ummm okay)

can anyone give like a short little review about one of the shows they went to? be totally awesome coz they aren't comin to my country ;)

All you ever hear about is Led Zepplin, Guns N' Roses, Metallica, AC/DC, and others. Now dont get me wrong, these bands are good....some even great! but still Bon Jovi is pretty much left out. So to the thread starter......RIGHT ON!

I went to the concert at the MCI Center in Washington and it was awsome! If you are really into Bon Jovi, go to one of their concerts because their tour ends I think in June so hurry.

Heather Locklear filed for divorce against Richie on Febuary 2. She is an a** hole! The magizines said it was because of career differences. Others said Richie was cheating. I dont believe it because he was on tour putting on shows almost every night! If any one was cheating, it was heather because she was home while Richie is putting on shows for fans. She was Richie's first wife and he was her second or something. Sorry, but he did not cheat.

BonJoviforlife

Just noticed we don't have a Bon Jovi thread! :(

So decided to make one. For those of you who didn't know - heres some news on Bon Jovi

Bon Jovi's new album is due for release on the 19th September internationally. Though the album is currently untitled -the track titles have been released;



The album will also be supported by a world tour. The band have said that it will be a guitar heavy rock record, more like Slippery When Wet and New Jersey than more recent albums Crush and Bounce.

They have also said there will be no ballads on the new album.

:cheers:

So. Who here likes Bon Jovi?




wow... this whole thing is a lie... no ballads? theres like 20... and its not hard rock guitar either... not that i dont like the album.. i like it alot.. just that its not ewither of those things
