'Extra' Exclusive! Rockin' with Jon Bon Jovi, Sex Symbol
Bon Jovi a Worldwide Smash
Underlining their status as one the world's biggest bands, the release is a new Bon Jovi "best," charting higher and selling more copies in its first week than the band's 1994 CROSS ROAD release, which has sold 21.5 million copies to date worldwide.
Bon Jovi Greatest Hits debuted in the Top 5 in over 20 countries around the world including in the US, where it is the #1 charting rock release, the UK, Germany, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, New Zealand, Argentina and Korea. The album entered the charts at #1 in Japan, Canada, Australia, Ireland, Sweden, Portugal, and Mexico. The album held at #1 for 2 weeks in Portugal and Ireland and remains at #1 for a second straight week on the European Billboard Album Chart.
But it is not just about the anthemic smash hits that have become Rock staples over the last three decades. The band's latest hit single, 'What Do You Got?' is climbing the charts as the fastest growing radio single in Bon Jovi history.
The band's extensive global campaign started in the UK with a storming X Factor performance and an ITV special in advance of the Greatest Hits release, before closing the MTV EMAs where they were honoured with the first ever Global Icon Award.
