Lite’s Review Room – Bon Jovi
What does a successful rock group do “for an encore” after a hugely popular 19 year career, where they’ve performed over 2,700 concerts and sold 130 million records worldwide? They go into the studio, record a new album, and support it with a worldwide, sold out tour. Well, that’s what Bon Jovi does. The Sayreville, New Jersey band whose original name was almost “Johnny Electric,” actually plans their sabbaticals and changes in musical direction. With only one significant personnel change, the band has learned to give each other breathing room and plan everything meticulously. The new single (and tour) is called “Because We Can,” and the new album is “What About Now.” Chances are you’re hearing it right now, or already have your concert tickets.
