Bon Jovi Head Into Studio To Begin Recording
New York, NY-- International superstars, Bon Jovi head back in to the studio this week to begin recording their new album, Bounce. Bounce is being co-produced by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora along with Luke Ebbin, the same team responsible for the multi-platinum Crush. The band is recording the album in New Jersey and it is slated for a late Fall release.
Bounce is the follow up to Bon Jovi's incredibly successful album, Crush which sold 8 million copies worldwide (certified double platinum in the U.S.), spawned the hit singles, "It's My Life" and "Thank You For Loving Me" and earned the group their first ever Grammy nominations for "Best Rock Album" and "Best Rock Performance by Duo or Group” for "It's My Life". The band embarked on a sold-out world tour that spanned 2000 and 2001, playing nearly 100 concerts in 18 countries for more than 3 million fans. The tour culminated with a two night sold-out homecoming at N.J.'s Giants Stadium. The shows aired on VH-1 and was the highest rated concert event in the network's history. In addition, Bon Jovi released their first-ever live album last year, One Wild Night: Live 1985-2001 which has sold over 2 million copies to date.
The members of Bon Jovi have taken part in some very high profile events this year. In the wake of the September 11th attacks, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora performed as part of the "America: A Tribute to Heroes" telethon while the full band performed at the VH-1 "Concert for New York" in October at NYC's Madison Square Garden. Both events have been released on CD, DVD and VHS. Bon Jovi also took part in the "Alliance For Neighbors" concerts which benefited families living near the band members’ hometowns who were affected by the World Trade Center attacks. In December, Jon and Richie performed a rousing rendition of "Here Comes the Sun" as a tribute to the late George Harrison at the 2001 My VH1 Awards, before winning the award for "Hottest Live Act". In February, Bon Jovi once again wowed a global audience with their amazing performance at the Closing Ceremonies of the Salt Lake City 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
