You won’t find Bon Jovi, New Jersey’s most famous export, lounging at the Jersey shore this year. Instead, the rockers are headlining a world tour to promote their Grammy-nominated album Lost Highway. Front man Jon Bon Jovi describes the 2007 album — which features the hit “Who Says You Can’t Go Home” — as having an uncharacteristic Nashville flavor, but that hasn’t stopped fans from flocking to pick it up. The record is the band’s most successful album since they topped the charts with New Jersey in 1988.
The quartet ends their whirlwind tour with a pair of shows at Madison Square Garden this July featuring guitarist Richie Sambora, plus David Bryan on keyboard and Tico Torres on drums.
Already in the U.K. rock hall of fame, the band is up for the same honors in the States starting in 2009. Bon Jovi is playing only five U.S. shows this summer, so be sure to see the legendary band when they play Madison Square Garden July 14 and 15.
