Bon Jovi launched their career with their self-titled debut album in 1984 and its infectious hit single Runaway. The album 7800° Fahrenheit followed a year later and, while a hit with the band’s fans, Bon Jovi have rejected playing songs off 7800° Fahrenheit. Fans with Bon Jovi tickets for The O2 London shows will be in for a treat, as the band hinted at playing songs of the album for the first time in 20 years!
The 1986 and 1988 albums Slippery When Wet and New Jersey finally broke the band commercially into the mainstream. Anthems such as You Give Love A Bad Name, Livin’ On A Prayer, Wanted (Dead Or Alive), Bad Medicine, Born To Be My Baby or the rock ballads Never Say Goodbye and I’’ Be There For You turned global hits and defined a generation.
After a brief hiatus that saw Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Samborra dabbling with solo efforts, such as Jon’s Blaze of Glory for the movie Young Guns II.
The band returned with the massive Keep The Faith and These Days albums and escaped the ‘grunge death’ fate many of their 80’s contemporaries suffered. The album, tour and singles Keep The Faith, I Believe, In These Arms or Bed Of Roses became all massive global successes that earned the band many new fans and set Bon Jovi on the path through the 90’s.
It took the band 5 years to return with a new album and the noughties saw Bon Jovi release Crush, Bounce, Have A Nice Day and Lost Highway - a string of strong, albeit quieter albums that kept the band afloat, but with the exception of It’s My Life and the almost Beatles-que Say It Isn’t So singles failed to win new fans or set the charts on fire as with previous attempts.
With 2009’s The Circle and The Circle Tour, Bon Jovi attempt to reclaim their position as the greatest rock band. The residency at The O2 Arena in London is an unmistakable battle cry and an opportunity to see this amazing band live.
