I did see Jon casually mention touring Australia and Japan...
Agree......

This is how relevant Jovi are.

Theres a shit rag paper in England that did a two page spread on these awards...They never even mentioned who won the Icon award - it was all about no marks like twats from One Direction and their pathetic solo songs and other artists.
No mention of Bon Jovi at all.

I suffered through the awards show (it was SO BAD) just to watch Bon Jovi. I was on an overnight trip with my Mom, so I told her ahead of time that I was worried about their performance. They did NOT fit in at that awards show. Anyway, I cringed every time Jon attempted (and missed) the high notes. I cringed that he didnít move away from the mic. When he jumps in between lyrics, itís alnost worse than no moving at all, because it emphasizes his death grip on the mic while singing.
When it was over, I felt sad for them. I wouldnít be surprised if this is the last real tour for them, aside from a few one offs and Jonís Suburbia band. I donít have tickets yet, but Iím hoping to see a show, because Iím not sure theyíll be another tour.
BTW, they have been slashing ticket prices like crazy for upcoming shows. All seats for Vegas are currently half price. Little Rock has tons of seats available, 2nd row seats were reduced to $116. They arenít selling like they use to, and they arenít making nearly as much per ticket with all these last minute discounts.

I know places like this board have been discussing Jon's voice endlessly for years now. However, this text from a friend of mine illustrates that people who have only a minimum to casual interest in the band are noticing, too.

My friend texted me on Tuesday morning:

You are more up on Bon Jovi news than I am. I saw their performance on the iHeartRadio music awards. His vocals were pretty rough. He just looked like he was struggling. Is he having issues as of late?
IMO (and of course, it's only one guy's opinion) this will damage the reputation of the band longer-term (if there is a longer term) as people will only do a show or two more with obviously poor vocals from the frontman of the band (especially since he sticks to the microphone stand like glue for much of the show). I almost don't want them to perform at the RRHoF ceremony because then the whole world will know our "dirty little secret" about JBJ's voice.

Admittedly, I was a big Richie fan but moved on and accepted the new Bon Jovi once it was clear this is the new normal. I really enjoyed THINFS as an album (better than much of the last decade, IMO), but there's NO CHANCE I'm buying a ticket to any show, not because RS is absent, but because Jon can't sing and, if I'm spending that kind of cash, I want a lead singer who's able to carry the load.

Jon's voice up until 2013 at least sounded like him so he.could at least get away with it. From 2015 onwards it's totally different and you can't not notice it.

I thoroughly agree. How the hell Jon still has enough balls to do full-length shows regularly with his voice sounding like this is beyond me:
