Bon Jovi to Be Named 'Legend of Live' at Billboard Touring Conference & Awards

Iconic rock band Bon Jovi will be named the 2016 Legend of Live by Billboard at the 13th annual Billboard Touring Conference & Awards, a celebratory event dedicated to the live music industry held November 9-10 at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. 
The Legend Of Live award is Billboard's highest accolade in the live entertainment space, recognizing professionalism and steadfast commitment to the art and craft of live performance. It honors artists who have made significant and lasting contributions to the touring business. The Legend Of Live award transcends success at the box office in the current year and recognizes a body of work across a lengthy career.
Bon Jovi, led by the creative and strategic force, Jon Bon Jovi, is a box-office smashing headliner, grossing well over $1 billion in ticket sales around the world in the past decade and ranking as the top touring band in the world three times in six years (a feat accomplished by only one other band in history, the Rolling Stones). As the band prepares to release their fourteenth studio album, This House Is Not for Sale on October 21st (Island/UMG), they are again delivering anthems of integrity and optimism to legions of fans as they have done for over three decades.
Bon Jovi will join a prestigious group of Legend of Live honorees, including Bob Seger, who was honored in 2015, as well as past honorees like Lionel Richie, Sir Elton John, Neil Diamond, George Strait, Rush, Journey, the Allman Brothers Band, and Ozzy Osbourne.
"With an undeniable legacy and current status as a world class, stadium-level touring act, we think Bon Jovi is uniquely deserving to be named a Legend Of Live," says Ray Waddell, Billboard's executive director of content and programming for touring and live entertainment. "To paraphrase their own hit, they've seen 20 million faces -- at least -- and rocked them all."
The 2015 Billboard Touring Conference & Awards sold out with a record number of attendees and featured a special Q&A with Brad Paisley, a three-time Grammy winning singer, songwriter, guitarist and entertainer.

How Jon Bon Jovi’s Past Tribulations Inspired His New Album

How Jon Bon Jovi’s Past Tribulations Inspired His New Album

Legendary rocker Jon Bon Jovi is back with a new single and a new album of the same name, “This House Is Not for Sale.” He sat down with “Extra’s” Renee Bargh in the place where it all began… the New York City studio,where he and his bandmates recorded their first album back in the '80s.
Jon opened up about his new music and why he is with “her” when it comes to the presidential election. On sharing his new music, he commented, “It’s been an interesting last few years to see it come together, and to now share it with the world is something I’ve been waiting to do, I’m very proud of it, as are the guys… Now that the single is out and the statements been made, we're very excited.”
The music was three years in the making, since Bon Jovi was at a cross roads in his life. He explained, “There was a lot going on, at the end of the last tour, stuff with the band members changing around and trials and tribulations in the business of music, so it was a tumultuous last tour.”
He added, “The three years between then and now, out of great pains comes great songs. This record was simple, we just said, 'we have a lot to say and nothing to prove.'”

Bon Jovi’s songs are inspired by his own life experience, saying, “A lot of what I live through is in the lyrics of the songs.”
The album is packed with rock anthems, Jon pointed out, “There’s a lot of them… 'This House Is Not for Sale' is as much of a statement as we’ve made before, this heart, this soul, this house is not for sale, it’s about my integrity.”
Jon has had a few #1 tours in his career, but he’s not so sure he’ll do a big blow out tour for this album. “Perhaps, not necessarily… I haven’t honestly decided.” He went on, “We’ll go out, but not to the extent that historically we have done.”
What he is certain about… supporting Hillary Clinton's campaign to become president. Bon Jovi recently performed at a fundraiser in the Hamptons for the Democratic nominee, “That was especially fun because Jimmy Buffet is a dear friend of mine, it was at Jimmy’s house. Paul McCartney, you know Paul, no matter who he is around you become a giddy kid because he’s one of the Beatles… Any time I get to spend time with him is a treat.”
The 54-year-old is a longtime supporter of Hillary, gushing, “I think that she’s fabulous. I think she’s the right person for the job. Her experience speaks volumes and personally I’m blessed to say I know her and trust her, so for the sake of my kids and the country, I’m supporting her.”
“This House Is Not for Sale” is available for digital pre-order. It officially drops October 21.
