BON JOVI ‘THIS HOUSE IS NOT FOR SALE TOUR’
APPEARING LIVE IN EUROPE AGAIN FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SIX YEARS
ONE OF THE BIGGEST ROCK BANDS ON STADIUM TOUR IN 2019
CONCERTS IN JULY IN DÜSSELDORF, MUNICH, ZURICH, VIENNA AND KLAGENFURT
After thousands of sold-out shows, one thing is certain: Bon Jovi + stadium = one hell of a night.
Bon Jovi, one of the greatest rock bands in the world, have now announced their return to Switzerland on their triumphant world tour through the US, Canada, Brazil, Argentina and Chile as well as Japan and Australia. A magnificent year brought them not only 80 shows in 2018 but also saw them inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their This House Is Not For Sale European tour likewise promises to be an all-out success.
On July 10th record-holders Bon Jovi return to the Letzigrund stadium in Zurich, where they outdid other major acts such as Robbie Williams and the Rolling Stones behind them with an unbeatable five performances. They first appeared here in 1996 and for the last time in 2011.
“These huge shows, tens of thousands of people united. That’s what we do,” grins Jon Bon Jovi.
The success of their last album and worldwide chart topper This House Is Not For Sale was the pinnacle of a turbulent period in the band’s career, which has spanned over three decades. The album was a defiant statement – accompanied by a series of intimate shows, its release triggered the start of a new era for Jon Bon Jovi and his band.
And the band has made even further progress. Their ‘Because We Can World Tour’ in 2013 was their third international highest-grossing tour in six years (a feat that only the Rolling Stones have accomplished to date).
Along with Jon, the band consists of original members David Bryan and Tico Torres, their long-standing bassist Hugh McDonald, co-producer and co-songwriter John Shanks, multi-instrumentalist Bradley Everett and lead guitarist Phil X, who has been in on the act since 2013.
The tour concentrates on the music and the songs that have bestowed over 130 million album sales on Bon Jovi. As well as classics such as “You Give Love A Bad Name”, “It’s My Life”, “Wanted Dead Or Alive”, “Bad Medicine”, “Who Says You Can’t Go Home”, “Always”, “Have A Nice Day” and of course “Livin’ On A Prayer”, the band have around 95 songs to choose from and can rearrange their set every night.
