Last night's awards dinner was held at Cipriani Wall Street and Dorothea Bongiovi was one of the night's honorees.  Jon had to have been so proud.

Just a few pics from the orange carpet and inside.  Man, who wouldn't want arm candy that looked like that.  Love the tie and pocket square...

David Bryan to play Carrara idol a Milano...

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

David will play at the 2nd edition of "Carrara Idol" festival in Milan on April 8th. Unfortunately it will be a private event so no tickets will be put on sale.

Carrara idol in Milan

The Nation , Carrara - February 18, 2014
BACK Carrara idol , but in Milan. The event is scheduled for April 8 at the city of Milan Design Week when Fuorisalone Vimercate Lambrate will return to perform on her gorgeous grand piano entirely covered with marble David Bryan of Bon Jovi. Nothing to do, then, for all those who expected to live again under the Apuan Alps an evening of glamor and international rock . After the successful first edition of the event in 2012 that brought in the heart of the basin Fantiscritti fans and enthusiasts from all over Italy , the creators of " Carrara idol " ( the same David Bryan and industrial Carrara Gualtiero Vanelli ) , have decided to transfer the cabin and puppets in Lombardy. "Maybe we could go back to the city in two years - says Vanelli that tells how Carrara has never been taken into account for this second - edition . Originally we had planned to organize Carrara idol in London, but since David has already scheduled a date there this year we decided to move to Milan. "


 
" CARRARA idol " will not be , however, that one of the events to which Gualtiero Vanelli is working on the upcoming Milan Design Week when he presents " Solid senses ." For the occasion, five star design and architecture as Stefano Boeri, Stefano Giovannoni , Alessandro Mendini, Paul Ulian Massimilinao Fuksas and propose original creations in marble designed and made in collaboration with "Robot City, the italian art factory 'of the same Walter Vanelli . Specifically Stefano Boeri has chosen to focus on architectural volumes in one dimension from internal and accentuating the dynamic forces . Alessandro Mendini has instead re-read his Proust armchair , modeling its structural components according to the peculiarities of the marble. Stefano Giovannoni for the occasion has designed a table with chairs zoomorphic , " Bunny" , while Paul Ullian , marble is used to create a table " destrutturabile " and a lamp. Massimiliano Fuksas , has finally taken the task of looking after the preparations of the inaugural evening of 8 April , during which David Bryan will perform some songs on her gorgeous M- Plan , a Steinway grand , around which it was created and "customized " a cover with marble tiles .

Speaking to Gigwise earlier this year about playing the festival, Drenge frontman Eoin Loveless said: "I've seen Download written in our diary and I really want to do it because I think it will be awesome. The industry is so messed up, no one's going to buy a ticket just because we're playing but I'd love to."

He added: "Most people at those sort of festivals just sit in the camping area, get in a row and just run in a straight line through tents for as long as possible. The wall of shame, but I am really looking forward to it."
See the full line-up below
 
The new additions join headliners Linkin Park, Aerosmith and Avenged Sevenfold at the legendary Donington Park, alongside the likes of Fall Out Boy, Rob Zombie, Alter Bridge, The Offspring, Steel Panther, Status Quo and many more.

Richie on Tour...

Monday, April 7, 2014

UPDATE!
Queenie stands corrected (thank you Rike for the updated information)
Apparently Queenie needed to do a smidge more research this morning before posting.  Had she done so, she would have seen that there are several (4) dates Mr. Sambora and Miss Orianthi are playing in Germany:


RICHIE SAMBORA: LIVE IN GERMANY!!

Guten morgen! The news you’ve been waiting for:
RICHIE SAMBORA is heading to GERMANY in JUNE. Four headlining dates in four cities: STUTTGART, MUNICH, BERLIN and COLOGNE. Check out the details below!

Celebrated American rock icon RICHIE SAMBORA has announced he will play four headline shows in June in Germany. Back after two years, German fans will have the great opportunity to see one of the greatest musicians and singer- songwriters of our time performing material from his solo records with a few surprises thrown in. With three acclaimed solo albums that have highlighted a more personal and intimate side to Richie’s songwriting, (1991’s Stranger in This Town, and 1998’s Undiscovered Soul and 2012’s Aftermath of the Lowdown, which spawned the powerful single “Every Road Leads Home To You.” ) this promises to be four mind-blowing nights of rock and roll!
 
Joining him onstage will be none other than Australian singer-songwriter and guitar goddess Orianthi, who has worked as lead guitarist to some of the biggest superstars in the world (Alice Cooper, Michael Jackson).
 
RICHIE SAMBORA feat. ORIANTHI is playing Stuttgart at the Beethovensaal on June 19, Munich at the Kesselhaus on June 20, Berlin at the Tempodrom on June 22 and Cologne at E-Werk on June 24.

Richie Sambora has become known throughout his remarkable 30-year career for his raw vocals, indelible songwriting and world-class guitar playing. As both an acclaimed solo artist and a founding member of multi-platinum, Grammy-winning band Bon Jovi, Richie has sold over 130 million albums worldwide and has co-written over 20 Top 40 hits and 11 Top 10 hits, including “Livin’ On A Prayer,” “You Give Love A Bad Name” and “Wanted Dead or Alive.” He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009.
 
Richie is continuously lending his vocals and support to important causes and organizations that resonate deeply with him, whether it be the Hurricane Sandy relief effort affecting his home state of New Jersey or issues regarding the environment, homelessness, illness, hunger and music education.
