107 // THIS AIN’T A LOVE SONG
Bon Jovi rocks the BB&T Center with a pre-valentine’s Day concert.
BON JOVI ROCKS THE
BB&T CENTER WITH
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.
