Bon Jovi is back to prove their staying power.
After skyrocketing to no. 1 on the Billboard top 200 back in 2016, Bon Jovi’s album This House is Not for Sale has jumped back to that coveted spot.
Back in January, the band announced that they would be taking This House is Not for Sale out on tour as well as rereleasing the album with two new tracks.
Fans who purchased tickets for the tour through Live Nation were given a voucher to receive a copy of the album per ticket that was purchased.
This ticket redemption set the 2016 album up 120,000 units putting the album back at the top of the charts.
This new plan the ticket company has rolled out has given artists the opportunity to still rely on physical album sales as opposed to strictly streaming and digital downloads.
Ticket redemption “sales” of the album, according to Rolling Stone, comes almost as close to the number of albums sold when it first came out. It sat atop no. 1 with 129,000 unites in 2016 and is only 9,000 short two years later.
This tour and reissue ride hot on the heels of the announcement that after decades together, Bon Jovi would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during the 2018 ceremony.
Lead singer Jon Bon Jovi’s close friend Howard Stern will induct them even with his aversion to travel. Guitarist Richie Sambora is expected to be at the induction despite a falling out with Jon in 2013.
The tour will start March 14th in Denver and come to a close exactly two months later on May 14th in DC. Tickets are available through Live Nation. See tour dates below.
