Watch Bon Jovi Play Every Song From Their New Album in Concert
"It’s good to be back, it’s been three long years," Jon Bon Jovi is quoted as telling the crowd. "There’s been a lot going on in my life, but I hope your life has not been as tumultuous. But it’s pretty good these days. This is a record about our integrity. This is a record about our rebirth, this is a record about life, love, loss and all the sweat that went in between."
As previously reported, the Red Bank show was just the first stop on a short tour showcasing the new record. The tour is scheduled to run throughout October; This House Is Not for Sale is due to arrive in stores on Oct. 21, with a special expanded edition slated for Target shelves.
NJ.com offers a track-by-track rundown of the new songs featured in the Red Bank set list, and though it's something of a mixed review, there were several highlights — some of which you can check out via the fan-shot footage above and below. To watch clips of the rest of the show, visit the JoviGirl1983 YouTube channel.
Bon Jovi are expected to head out on a more traditional tour in 2017, but it may not be quite the trek fans have grown accustomed to. "Perhaps, not necessarily. I haven’t honestly decided," Jon Bon Jovi told Extra when asked whether the band planned to travel the world in support of the new album. "We’ll go out," he added, "but not to the extent that historically we have done."
