|On a steel horse Bon Jovi rides to top of the charts
THERE's nothing like a stadium tour to boost a band's record sales.
On the back of their sell-out tour, American rockers Bon Jovi have enjoyed a surprising revival in the Australian music charts.
The band have landed eight albums in this week's ARIA Top 100 in the wake of their first tour in seven years, which rocked Sydney's Acer Arena last week.
Bon Jovi's hit 1987 album, which features singles Livin' On A Prayer, You Give Love A Bad Name and Wanted Dead Or Alive, re-entered the chart at No. 28.
Slippery When Wet reached No. 1 in Australia when it was originally released and went on to sell six times platinum. It has sold 28 million copies worldwide.
