Bon Jovi launches world tour ‘Because We Can’
ATLANTA — As a unit, Bon Jovi has sold more than 130 million records, repeatedly toured the globe and, on March 12, will release its 12th studio album, “What About Now.” The band will also perform March 14 on “American Idol” and, in one of the more amusing notes on their resume, compete for favorite music group at Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards March 23, alongside Maroon 5, Big Time Rush and One Direction.
That’s when you know your appeal is multigenerational.
Along with the accomplishments of Bon Jovi the band comes the rundown of their extracurricular activities of late: Jon Bon Jovi was nominated for a Golden Globe for his plaintive ballad “Not Running Anymore” from “Stand Up Guys” (he lost to Adele, just like everyone loses to Adele). Guitarist Richie Sambora released his third solo album, “Aftermath of the Lowdown,” last fall. Drummer Tico Torres maintains a busy side career as an artist. And keyboardist David Bryan brought more prestige to the New Jersey-born band when “Memphis,” the Broadway musical he co-wrote, nabbed four Tony Awards in 2010.
