THERE GOES THE NEIGHBOURHOOD - BON JOVI IS MOVING IN! The World's Biggest Live Band Take up Residence at The O2 - The Only European Bon Jovi shows in 2010
With over 120 million albums sold, countless awards and stellar stadium shows year after year, Bon Jovi have little more to conquer.
So it is with great excitement that the No. 1 touring band in the world announce they are moving to London for summer 2010 for a residency at The O2 arena.
Part of their globe trotting The Circle Tour, named after their forthcoming album, the band will set off in the spring of 2010 in the US, while the London residency will start June 2010.
After Bon Jovi opened The O2 on 24 June 2007, the now famous The O2 residencies have become synonymous with the biggest acts in the world.
Bon Jovi are as big as they come, while other artists of their generation slow down, the New Jersey natives are hitting their peak. They are ranked as Billboard's #1 top-selling tour of 2008 worldwide, release new album The Circle on November 2 with an incredible documentary When We Were Beautiful. First single from the album, We Weren't Born To Follow, is receiving massive radio support in the UK, including from Radio 1 and Radio 2.
With a live DVD of the band's acclaimed dates at Madison Square Garden to come on 23 November and the When We Were Beautiful book on 3 November, it is a great time to be Bon Jovi.
Alongside those 120 million albums sold, the band have performed more than 2,600 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 34 million fans. Bon Jovi is at their best when they are on the move and that is truer now than ever before.
Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, David Bryan and Tico Torres are preparing to spend nearly two years spanning the globe, including landmark shows as the first musical act to play at The New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey on 26 & 27 May.
They announced their World Tour today at the venue's parking lot with a secret gig to over 5,000 fans to mark the stadium's grand opening. That was just the start of an amazing two years ahead for Bon Jovi, one of the greatest live acts on the planet. London is in for a treat.
AEG Live's Rob Hallett, promoting for the residency, comments:
"When Jon Bon Jovi opened The O2 with the words, 'Hello London, welcome to your new home,' little did he realise that we were already plotting to make it his new home! Bon Jovi are the best live band in the World. This one could run and run."
