Bon Jovi What About Now? on 2LP
Over an illustrious career spanning more than four decades since their formation in 1983, Bon Jovi has earned their place among global rock royalty. The consummate rock and roll band, Bon Jovi has sold more than 135 million albums worldwide to date, produced an extensive catalog of hit albums and songs, racked up 96 No. 1 chart debuts around the globe, and has performed more than 2,900 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 37 million fans.
Beginning with their 1986 breakthrough album Slippery When Wet and back-to-back No. 1 songs "You Give Love A Bad Name" and "Livin' On A Prayer," Bon Jovi's unique blend of straight up rock ‘n' roll and universal, everyman lyrics that speak directly to fans' lives have made the band a mainstay on the charts worldwide. A phenomenon during the mid-to-late-80s, Bon Jovi bucked labels and defied the ever-fickle music industry to not only survive but thrive during the ‘90s, emerging again in 2000 with the massive hit single "It's My Life," which ushered in an era of unprecedented popularity and success in the band's career, including a Grammy Award for their 2005 No. 1 hit single, "Who Says You Can't Go Home."
2013's What About Now? marked Bon Jovi's last with longtime guitarist Richie Sambora and the band's third album in a row to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard charts following Lost Highway (2007) and The Circle (2009). Lead single "Because We Can" became the biggest single/iTunes success of the band's storied career, hitting the Top 5 in 24 countries and #1 in 12 countries. The band's "Because We Can – The Tour" was 2013's No. 1 tour, filling arenas and stadiums worldwide, proving that Bon Jovi is still one of the world's number one bands.
