Bon Jovi Faces Off With Elvis 15 October 2002
For Billboard 200 #1

Source: Launch


Bon Jovi's new album, Bounce, is expected to debut in the upper regions of the Billboard 200 on Wednesday (October 16). Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora told LAUNCH that he expects the album to battle Elvis Presley's Elvis: 30 #1 Hits for the top spot.

"You know I'm anxious to see how it's going down. Obviously it's being well received everywhere else. And right now from what I'm hearing we're neck-and-neck with the King right now. He's up yesterday, we're up today, and it's like, literally [the difference is] 7,000 records, which is not a lot of records," he said. "So we have a chance at coming in Number One and after 20 years of being in a band that's pretty cool."

The first single from Bounce is "Everyday," which Sambora said is an ode to making every minute of life count.

Bon Jovi will play three dates in Australia in December and then in January the band will tour Japan. The band recently did a promotional tour of New York for various outlets, but Jon Bon Jovi had to cut his promotional time for Bounce down due to a family emergency.
