US legendary band Bon Jovi will perform in Bucharest next year, 8 years after the first and only gig in Romania. The concert will take place in Piata Constitutiei ( Constitutiei Square) in Bucharest on July 21, 2019, according to D&D East Entertainment, which presents the show next to Marcel Avram and East European Production.
Tickets will be put up for sale in Eventim network.
The gig is part of the band’s tour „This House Is Not For Sale”, which is the latest studio album released by Bon Jovi and their 13th album. It has been released on November 4, 2016 by Islands Records and has ranked first in the Billboard the next week after it has been released.
It is their first studio album with Phil X on lead guitar, who replaced longtime member Richie Sambora in 2013. This House is also the first album where bassist Hugh McDonald officially replaces original bassist Alec John Such, who left the band in 1994.
“Those huge shows, tens of thousands of people all together as one, that’s what we do,” smiles Jon Bon Jovi.
The success of latest album This House Is Not For Sale, which debuted at the top of charts around the world, was the culmination of a tempestuous period in the band’s 3-decade history. A defiant statement, launched in a series of intimate shows in 2016, the album became the jumping off point for a new era for Jon Bon Jovi and his band.
And that band has evolved since their last global trip. 2013’s Because We Can World Tour, was their third tour in six years to be ranked the #1 top-grossing tour in the world (a feat accomplished by only The Rolling Stones previously).
The band now features Bon Jovi originals David Bryan and Tico Torres alongside Jon, plus long time bassist Hugh McDonald, co-producer and co-songwriter John Shanks and lead guitarist Phil X, who joined the band on that 2013 tour. All were on stage for an emotional set at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction to add to a momentous year.
“We’ve become a new, rejuvenated Bon Jovi,” says Jon, “A refreshed line up that kills every night. We sound better than ever and we’re enjoying every minute. We are out there as a band, feeding off each other and the fans, having the time of our lives all over again.”
This tour places the spotlight firmly on the music and the songs, the body of work that has propelled Bon Jovi to over 130 million record sales. The band is ready with a choice of around 95 songs that they can change up every night, but have also been playing their all time classics like “You Give Love A Bad Name”, “It’s My Life”, “Wanted Dead Or Alive”, “Bad Medicine” and of course, “Livin’ On A Prayer”.
Bon Jovi has performed in Bucharest, in the same Constitutiei Square in July 2011, in front of more than 60,000 spectators.
