BON JOVI ROCKS THE

BB&T CEN­TER WITH

A PRE-VALEN­TINE’S

DAY CON­CERT.

Just in time for Valen­tine’s Day, Bon Jovi gives love a good name on Fe­bru­ary 12 at the BB&T Cen­ter in Sun­rise, where the leg­endary band will belt out the hits as part of the “This House Is Not for Sale” tour. Although best known for mon­ster jams of the ’80s, in­clud­ing “Livin’ on a Prayer” and “Wanted Dead or Alive,” the New Jersey rock­ers are hardly ready to ride off into the sun­set. In fact, their most re­cent al­bum, This House Is Not for Sale, de­buted in the top spot on the Bill­board charts last Novem­ber—the band’s sixth num­ber-one al­bum.

And for old-school fans, the band has a treat: Com­ing this month is Bon Jovi: The Al­bums, a ca­reer-span­ning set of 17 al­bums, all re­mas­tered and all on vinyl. In ad­di­tion, the set in­cludes four Jon Bon Jovi solo records and an “ex­tras” col­lec­tion con­tain­ing pre­vi­ously un­avail­able rar­i­ties.

With drum­mer Tico Tor­res a Mi­ami Beach res­i­dent, ex­pect a lit­tle ex­tra home­town flair. What bet­ter way to cel­e­brate Valen­tine’s Day than with a live “Bed of Roses”? 1 Pan­ther Pkwy., Sun­rise, 954835-7000; tick­et­mas­ter.com

Af­ter more than 30 years, Jon Bon Jovi and his band­mates show no signs of slow­ing down, with their tour ar­riv­ing in Mi­ami this month to sup­port their sixth num­ber-one al­bum.
