October 26, 2007

FROM THE FIRST NIGHT OF BAND’S 10-NIGHT STINT AT THE PRUDENTIAL CENTER IN NEW JERSEY, JON BON JOVI ANNOUNCES WORLD TOUR PLANS

NEW YORK, NY — “We’re starting in New Jersey and then taking it to the world,” exclaimed Jon Bon Jovi on stage earlier tonight at the grand opening of The Prudential Center in his home state of New Jersey. With that, the band tore into an explosive concert that marked the first of 10 sold-out concerts and the surprise launch of Bon Jovi’s Lost Highway World Tour. Anticipation is running at an all time high as concerts in more than 10 countries have already been confirmed including Canada, the U.S., Japan, New Zealand, England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Holland, Austria – and counting. Tickets for U.S. dates will go on sale on beginning Saturday, November 3rd, with additional markets and dates to follow in the coming weeks. Fans should continue to log on to www.bonjovi.com for the most up to date concert and ticket on sale information.

Jon Bon Jovi’s world tour announcement, interview and concert footage will be available for free to the media to download at 12:01 AM EST on Friday, October 26th at www.thenewsmarket.com/bonjovi. Flexible delivery options include digital FTP transfer, Beta SP tape, Data-DVD, and streaming download (Flash, QuickTime, and Windows Media).

Bon Jovi, who could’ve played ten nights anywhere in the NY/Metropolitan area, chose to kick off their next World Tour with ten nights at the brand new Prudential Center in Newark, NJ for a total attendance of over 150,000. The band’s sustained presence at the new venue was a conscious effort to support the growth of Newark, NJ, which is currently undergoing a major economic revitalization.

“We applaud Bon Jovi’s decision to launch their tour from The Prudential Center in Newark to bring worldwide attention to the redevelopment of this American city, and the economic impact this arena will have in the band’s home state,” said Randy Phillips, President & CEO of AEG Live, the band’s North American tour promoter. “We look forward to the most dynamic Bon Jovi tour yet.”

Bon Jovi has set the bar for more than two decades as one of the most successful rock bands in the world. Globally, they have sold more than 120 million albums and performed more than 2,500 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 32 million fans. Their latest album, the Nashville-inspired LOST HIGHWAY was released June 19, 2007, debuted at #1 around the world and includes the hits songs “Lost Highway” and “(You Want To) Make a Memory.” The band’s 2005 album, HAVE A NICE DAY, featured the Grammy-Award winning song, “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” and fueled one of the top-selling tours of 2005.
