Welcome back from wherever your holidays took you. We hope you have a wonderful break and that 2006 is even better than 2005! We're all just getting back on board the Bon Jovi train here at www.bonjovi.com but wanted to pass along this info to you - some stuff that might have gotten lost over the festivities of the season!
NICKELBACK has been confirmed and announced as the Support Act for BON JOVI's HAVE A NICE DAY tour in EUROPE this late Spring/early Summer!
TARGET stores in the U.S. will be carrying an exclusive CD of love songs that will be available during the Valentine's Day retail season (in some stores it might even be on the stands already.) It is called SONGS IN THE KEY OF RED 2. It is a complication CD of songs by many artists. BON JOVI gave TARGET usage of the song "WILDFLOWER" from the HAVE A NICE DAY CD. It is the standard version of the song - no variations - but for those Bon Jovi fans who collect all things Bon Jovi, add this one to the collection!
The PHILADELPHIA SOUL, the Arena Football League team of which JON BON JOVI is the Co-Owner and Co-CEO, kicks off their third season with a Home Opener on Sunday, January 29th at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia.
