Bon Jovi announces new album called “Bon Jovi 2020” and a very special summer tour with Bryan Adams
The tour kicks off June 10 in Tacoma, Washington and concludes July 28 after back-to-back shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Bryan Adams will join Jovi for nearly every show. Tickets are now on sale.
There is no doubt that Bon Jovi’s tandem with Bryan Adams is going to be a sure success. They will be concerts full of great hymns to chant.
And if this is not enough, each ticket for these concerts will include a copy of the new Bon Jovi´s album that will be released throughout the year with the title Bon Jovi 2020
About Bon Jovi
When it comes to touring, that oft-romanticized component of rock stardom, nobody does it better – or bigger – than rock icons Bon Jovi. With more the 2700 concerts in over 50 countries under their belts, Bon Jovi are one of the highest-grossing touring acts of all time. Hits like “Livin’ On a Prayer” and “You Give Love a Bad Name” are practically synonymous with arena rock, so it’s only appropriate that Bon Jovi are still selling out stadiums 20 years later, leaving a trail of highly coveted ticket stubs in their wake. Following the release of their 12th studio album What About Now, Bon Jovi are on the road again in 2013 for the Because We Can tour, which includes several concerts in honor of their induction into the Air Canada Centre Hall of Fame.
Heralding from the boardwalks of the Jersey Shore, Bon Jovi formed in the early ‘80s under the direction of frontman Jon Bon Jovi. The band launched to international superstardom with the No. 1 release of Slippery When Wet in 1986, and the album’s universal appeal – along with the band’s iconic image – is credited with widening hard rock’s audience to include more female fans, in addition to the traditionally male-dominated audience. Over the next two decades, Bon Jovi would go on to release three more No. 1 albums, including New Jersey (1988), Lots Highway (2007), and The Circle (2009). The hugely successful release of single “It’s My Life” in 2000 introduced Bon Jovi to a new generation of fans, paving the way for their continued success as one of the most in-demand live bands in the history of rock and roll.
About Bryan Adams
Bryan Adams was born in 1959 and would go on to become one of Canada’s greatest musical exports. He got into the music game early, becoming a background vocalist for the Canadian Broadcasting Company in his teens; outside of the CBC, he started gaining a strong reputation as a backup singer for local musicians, including Robbie King. His career in the spotlight started in 1976, when he joined the band Sweeney Todd, previously charted in Canada with single “Roxy Roller.” In 1980, Adams officially went solo with his self-titled debut, which featured a number of glam- and New Wave-flavored tracks, including Canadian charting single “Hidin’ from Love.” Moving forward, Adams would team up with producer Bob Clearmountain, who around that time also worked on albums for The Rolling Stones, Roxy Music, David Bowie, and Bruce Springsteen. As a result, 1981’s spirited ‘You Want It, You Got It’ had a clearer, more focused sound; single “Lonely Nights” peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and Adams’ fate was sealed.
His most successful work would come a couple of years later in the form of the shimmering, passionate ‘Reckless,’ which reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S., eventually going 5x Platinum. ‘Reckless’ contains what’s still considered some of Adams’ greatest songs, including “Run to You,” “Heaven,” and, of course, rock masterpiece “Summer of ‘69.” Since those early ‘80s albums, Adams has toured almost yearly, putting up long, worldwide routes for his new albums. Adams won a Grammy in 1992 for “(Everything I Do) It Do It for You,” which was written for the Kevin Costner film ‘Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.’ He’d go on to be awarded some of Canada’s highest honors, including the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia, and he landed in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2006. A few years later, he’d join the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
