BON JOVI's first ever LIVE ALBUM will hit the stores in the U.S. on Tuesday, MAY 22nd. BON JOVI: ONE WILD NIGHT LIVE 1985 - 2001 features live performances of BON JOVI songs culled from 17 years of concert footage in the BON JOVI vault. This is not a greatest hits package. Rather, as Jon Bon Jovi himself puts it, a "SNAPSHOT" of what BON JOVI is live in concert.

The track listing includes "Runaway" and "In And Out Of Love", both recorded in Tokyo in 1985 - what you hear is a young band hungry to make it big. Fifteen years later, after that young band came to sell out stadiums all across the globe, the band is able to take massive hits like "Keep The Faith" and "Wanted Dead Or Alive" and pack as much punch when done in an intimate club setting. Not only is this the band's first live album, but it marks the first time BON JOVI have included cover songs on a release. Again, both cover tracks included on this CD capture a specific moment in time: "I Don't Like Mondays" was recorded during the last of three sold out shows at London's Wembley Stadium, just days before the 10 year anniversary of Live Aid (which was held at Wembley) and features Sir Bob Geldof, Live Aid's creator, singing with the band. "Rockin' In The Free World" took on special meaning when the band performed it in Johannesburg, South Africa to an integrated crowd shortly after Nelson Mandela's release. For those of you who have seen BON JOVI live, this CD is a sonic postcard from the show - a reminder of what a great live band BON JOVI is. For those of you who haven't witnessed the magic of BON JOVI in concert, this will certainly whet your appetite. Plus, you'll get ONE WILD NIGHT 2001, the new remix of the track (originally released on the band's cd CRUSH).
