When and where did Jon marry Dorothea?

Jon and Dorothea took off for Vegas on Friday, April 28, 1989. Jon got the whim to get married and told her it was "now or never." He said they had a #1 album, a #1 single, and the best way he knew to top that was to get married. They didn't tell anyone where they were going or what they were doing. They got the license and got married at the Graceland Wedding Chapel (in honor of Elvis) a little after midnight on April 29, 1989. They were married by the Reverend George Cotton who described them on MTV News as just two kids in love. The cab driver was the witness. They used a fake plastic ring which broke when Dorothea placed it on Jon's hand. He said he'd never wear a wedding band after that, but obviously changed his mind. The band found out they had gotten married on Entertainment Tonight. They had a reception in August of 1989 just before leaving for Moscow.

Have all the dates for the "One Wild Night Tour" been announced?

I don't know but I would think so since the tour is already under way. All I recommend is wait for confirmation from the official fanclub Backstage With Jon Bon Jovi ( Latest tour info will always appear at the 'world tour' section here at Dry County.

Is the song "Blood On Blood" based on a true story?

The song is based on a group of friends that Jon had in High School. Bobby and Dorothea dated in High School, but when almost all of them went away to the military (except Jon) he 'stole' Dorothea away and they started dating instead. As we all know, Jon wanted to remain in New Jersey and play rock 'n' roll. So the song is about all of those friends and their times together so yes, it is based on a true story.
