The band began when lead singer Jon Bon Jovi discovered the music scene of his local New Jersey area. Becoming a musician at a very young age, Jon started playing live in clubs at the tender age of 16. Before too long he had met future Bon Jovi members Richie Sambora and David Brayan. Bon Jovi was soon born and the legend began. By 1983 the band had released their first single. Runaway was a small hit for the band but signalled big things for the future.

In the early 80s Bon Jovi released several albums which were minor hits but which helped to establish the band and earned them a big fan base. It wasn’t until 1986 that the band had their big breakthrough hit with the album Slippery When Wet. The album spawned the first single You Give Love a Bad Name, which was to be the band’s first number one hit. The album was an immediate success and went on to sell over 28 million copies. It remains the 21st bestselling album in music history. Bon Jovi tickets during this time were in huge demand.

Bon Jovi followed up this massive success with a string of hit albums and singles throughout the 80s and 90s. Albums such as New Jersey, Keep the Faith and These Days were all further hits for the band. Despite taking a short break during the late 90s, the band came back in 2000 with one of their biggest hits ever, It’s My Life. Their album Crush became Bon Jovi’s fifth consecutive number one album. Bon Jovi have kept up a prolific career of touring and recording, having released eleven studio albums and several compilations and live albums.
