One of America’s major mainstream rock bands have announced their return to Germany as part of their current world tour, named after their album.
Bon Jovi kick off the German leg of their European tour in Düsseldorf on 3rd July, followed by a concert at the Olympic Stadium Munich on 5th July. No strangers to the Bavarian capital, Bon Jovi have already performed five times at the Olympic Stadium in front of some of their biggest audiences. In 2003, band members imprinted their hands in wet concrete at the stadium as a token of their attachment to the venue, and Jon sacrificed his sunglasses to set permanently in cement.
Released in 2016, a turbulent time in the band's career spanning more than three decades, the “This House Is Not for Sale” album was interpreted as a statement of defiance. Playing at a number of smaller venues, it also signified the start of a new era for Bon Jovi.
Besides frontman and vocalist Jon, original members David Bryan, drummer Tico Torres and long-time bassist Hugh McDonald are flanked by guitarist/co-producer/co-songwriter John Shanks, multi-instrumentalist Everett Bradley and Canadian lead guitarist Phil X, who replaced Ritchie Sambora in 2013.
“The House is Not for Sale” tour features the tried and tested sounds that has won them albums sales totalling 130 million worldwide. Bon Jovi can draw on a repertoire of some 95 songs, including "You Give Love A Bad Name", "It's My Life", "Wanted Dead or Alive", "Bad Medicine", "Who Says You Can't Go Home", "Always", "Have A Nice Day" and the ever-green "Livin' on a Prayer".
One thing is for sure: Bon Jovi at the Olympic Stadium is a guaranteed good time!
