Bon Jovi to Mark 9-11, Showcase NFL
The Associated Press
Sep 2 2002 8:17AM

NEW YORK (AP) - The members of Bon Jovi say their upcoming performance in Times Square will not only kick off the football season but celebrate New Yorkers' resilience after Sept. 11.
The NFL approached the group about headlining Thursday's free concert, which is being promoted as a massive tailgate party. After the performance the band will take a helicopter to Giants Stadium to perform at halftime during the game between the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers.

The group's latest album, ``Bounce,'' was inspired in part by the Sept. 11 attacks. Middletown, N.J., a community 45 miles south of Manhattan where singer Jon Bon Jovi lives, lost 32 people in the attacks.

The singer said he saw the smoke rising from the World Trade Center from a beach near his home.

``When I was a kid, the Army and Marines would call, wanting me to enlist,'' he told the New York Daily News. ``I used to jokingly say, 'The day they invade Asbury Park, give me a call.' ... Here I am 22 years later and I felt like ... this is the beach at Asbury Park and they're here.''

Jon Bon Jovi has always been an optimist, in a way that is characteristic of the American spirit.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NFL KICK-OFF LIVE FROM TIMES SQUARE
Starring Bon Jovi
7 to 8 p.m. Thursday
Airs live on VH-1, MTV and ESPN
Bon Jovi's album 'Bounce' in stores Oct. 8

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As a kid, he was told that no dream was too big. Hard work pays off. True love is real. And good guys prevail.

"That was my upbringing," Bon Jovi said, recalling his childhood in Sayreville. "That optimism came from my folks and where I was brought up and the time I was raised. I was born in the Kennedy era -- it was that magical Camelot time -- and it gave me blind faith."

Bon Jovi grew up to become a husband, a father of three, and a world-famous rock star. He and his wife, Dorothea, and their children live in a beautiful estate on Middletown. They enjoy the good life, but they also stay grounded through philanthropy and close ties to the local community. This is American optimism richly rewarded, this is the American dream dressed to the nines.

But money, fame and popularity can't shield you from something like Sept. 11, especially when you live in a county that lost some 158 people that day and one of your kids wants to know, 'Dad, why didn't the president stop it?' It's easy to be an optimist when things are going your way. The challenge, to quote a Bon Jovi hit, is to 'keep the faith' when global turmoil pays a visit.

"It was a very difficult lesson to teach," Bon Jovi said. "How do you tell your kids there are bad people, to that extent, people who take life without a thought? You always know there is war and terror in the world, but when it happens in your back yard, you have to face it. So I sat them down and told them, yes, bad things happen to good people. And you have to tell them what it means when someone passes away, but also that just because your friend's dad is going to heaven, don't think that your dad is going to die, too. You have to tell them you'll be there for them, no matter what. It's hard."

Almost a year after that traumatic day, Bon Jovi and his bandmates -- Richie Sambora, David Bryan and Tico Torres -- will perform in New York as part of all-day festivities planned by the NFL.


A 'Giant' show
"NFL Kick-Off Live From Times Square," scheduled for Thursday, serves to herald the football season and the opening game between the New York Giants and the San Francisco 49ers. Bon Jovi will be the headliner, playing from about 7 to 8 p.m. before heading to Giants Stadium in East Rutherford to perform the half-time show. The day also features a New Year's Eve-style ball drop -- shaped like a football -- and recognition of the city's upcoming Sept. 11 memorial events.
Bon Jovi is a serious Giants fan and was eager to support his favorite sport -- he'll debut his band's new single, "Everyday," at the NFL events. But he also saw this event as a prelude to the Sept. 11 commemorations. Most major sporting events of the past year -- from the World Series to the Olympics to the U.S. Open -- have acknowledged Sept. 11 with ceremonies.

"I haven't gotten the official line from the NFL," Bon Jovi said, "but as I see it, the season starts in New York, and this is an opportunity to thank the country on a nationwide level for the support shown to New York, and to recognize, a week before the anniversary, that New York is getting through this."

VH-1 will broadcast Bon Jovi's Times Square performance live. ESPN and MTV will televise portions of the kick-off party. CBS will tape the event and air a one-hour primetime special the following night, Sept. 6. Westwood One will produce and distribute the radio broadcast of the event to stations nationwide.

On the morning of Sept. 11, Bon Jovi was exercising in his home gym when a breaking news report came on the TV. The night before, Bon Jovi and bandmate Richie Sambora had been working on songs for the band's next album.

"Richie was at the house, so I woke him up and said, 'There's something going on that you need to see,' " Bon Jovi said. "We couldn't contact his wife (actress Heather Locklear) and child on the West Coast. We didn't know what to do about my kids. Should we run to the school and get them? We drove to the beach and watched the burning, and then we went home."

When the first shock subsided, Bon Jovi grew restless. Like so many Monmouth County residents, he brought supplies ("sandwiches and socks") to local drop-off points, to be ferried over to lower Manhattan.

"I tried to be on the bucket brigade but they wouldn't let me because I didn't know CPR," he said. "I tried to donate blood but they didn't need it. We did everything we could from this side, everything we could think of."


Waving the flag
That included performing at two concerts in October at Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, which raised money for local 11 families; the massive Concert for New York at Madison Square
Garden, which honored firefighters, cops and recovery workers; and the understated national telethon for United Way's Sept. 11 funds.
Bon Jovi draped the front of his home with an enormous American flag, big enough to be noticeable to drivers on Navesink River Road. "It's still there," he said.

Needless to say, when he and Sambora returned to their songwriting, a dark tone emerged.

Musicians can't help but write about Sept. 11. Everyone from Sleater-Kinney to fellow New Jerseyan Bruce Springsteen has written music inspired by the day. Springsteen's album, "The Rising," dealt with the ongoing trauma of Sept. 11 and the many layers of grief sparked by sudden, massive loss. Bon Jovi has followed Springsteen's path by writing songs about hardship and blue-collar heroes, but Bon Jovi's perspective has been rosier. Bon Jovi's approach is more like Dr. Seuss's bittersweet children's book, "Oh, the Places You'll Go," wistful but playful, while Springsteen takes a cue from John Steinbeck's "Grapes of Wrath," serious and bleak, hinting at hope.

No surprise, then, that Bon Jovi's innate optimism resurfaced in the studio. Bon Jovi's eighth studio album, "Bounce," is set for release Oct. 8 on Island/Def Jam, with a tour to follow in December. It picks up where the wildly successful "Crush" left off, albeit tinted by recent events.

"I didn't want to do a whole album about Sept. 11," Bon Jovi said. "I have a few songs on 'Bounce' directly related to it, but I've taken it more from what I saw emerge after Sept. 11: the unity among people in this community was unparalleled anywhere in the world. To see those flags everywhere, that was something that got to me.

"When I'd read your paper, I'd read about families who are getting on with their lives, women who'd lost their husbands and were dusting themselves off and running the household, making this part of their lives, but not all of it. I noticed that nobody pulled their kids out of school, nobody moved away. None of the things that often happen after a tragedy happened here. Everybody stayed, stuck together and helped each other. So, the subject matter is resiliency and optimism in the face of adversity."

That is reflected in the title of the album, "Bounce," as in "bounce back," and in the first single, "Everyday," whose chorus of "I'm gonna live my life everyday," echoes the promise so many Americans made to themselves after Sept. 11.

"Life is short and you never know what's going to happen," Bon Jovi said. "So you better make the most of it while you can."

Bounce, the 8th Bon Jovi album out in September
Bon Jovi Everyday artwork

One year ago, BON JOVI were celebrating the smash-success of their multi-platinum
album CRUSH and culminating their world tour with two triumphant homecoming concerts at New Jersey's Giants Stadium.

One year later, BON JOVI are proud to debut BOUNCE, their eighth studio album. BOUNCE is a complete work of art. Each song tells a chapter of the story; each song paints a portion of the portrait. BOUNCE is a journal kept by the band of where they've been this past year, a diary of what they've witnessed and what they've felt. There is harshness and tenderness in the lyrics. There is strength and grace in the music. BOUNCE is where BON JOVI are today. Even just a sampling of songs offers a snapshot of the band's experiences this past year.

Invigorated by the success of CRUSH, Jon and Richie had begun the songwriting process for the next album and were working in New Jersey on new songs when the world stopped turning on September 11th. The songs Jon and Richie composed in the days after the tragedy were heavy-hearted and cathartic. But as the weeks and months passed, what Jon and Richie (and so many of us felt) in the aftermath morphed from a profound sadness into a determined resolve to live life to its fullest. It was these feelings that moved the songwriting process forward.

BOUNCE kicks off with the song UNDIVIDED. The song is the most directly influenced by the events of September 11th but, rather than dwelling upon the horror, it celebrates the silver lining the black cloud of 9/11 offered us. UNDIVIDED speaks to the oneness of everyone… not just one city, or one country… but the whole world entire. No man is an island… we are all part of the greater world that is humanity. We are stronger together, than apart.

EVERYDAY is the first single from the album and reinforces the need to live each day to its fullest. The lyrics acknowledge the harshness of life but encourage listeners to brush themselves off, get back up on their feet and get on with life. The video for EVERYDAY reinforces this global message (as well as the international superstar status of BON JOVI) by setting the band's performance at the Very Large Array (VLA) in Socorro, New Mexico. The massive radio antennas in the background seemingly transmit the band's performance to locations around the world and we
witness people from all corners of the planet watching this broadcast. (The band's performance was filmed in July; there are two secondary film crews, about to complete their worldwide treks, capturing real footage of people watching BON JOVI live.)

HOOK ME UP, a great rock song, has a deeper message when one understands the lyrics within the proper context. The song was inspired by a newspaper article about a young Palestinean man in occupied territory, trying desperately to make contact with people via an old, beat-up ham radio. He was trapped in a small corner of the world, amidst horrible events and all he longed for was communication, a connection with the outside world and
other people. With that situation in mind, the song was written from the young man's perspective, as if in a bunker, desperate for contact with others.

ALL ABOUT LOVING YOU is the classic Bon Jovi love song. It's simple and endearing in its message. In the wake of the events of September 11th, many people rediscovered what was truly important in life. And appreciating the love of another has always been at the top of that list… but many people were reminded. This song puts priorities where they belong.

BOUNCE, the album title track, is a declaration of strength and defiance. Initially, it had referred to the city of New York, and the United States as a whole, but also to the band's perseverance over a twenty year career. However, the song, as well as the album title, is open to interpretation by the listener. Whatever it is that you believe in, stick to it. Don't let others veer you off your chosen path. Determination. Gumption. Spirit. These prevail.

MISUNDERSTOOD is a song for every guy who's said the wrong thing (or failed to say the right thing) and had to face up to the fact. Written upon his return home from a long stretch of time away on location, Jon acknowledged there were portions of his personal life he'd neglected and wrote this song as a mea culpa. The intentions are always good, but the delivery sometimes poor. This is the everyman's song - it's for every guy who has been in the doghouse.

Jon noticed that in current popular music, there existed a dearth of real story-telling. The singer/songwriter was as popular as ever but the epic stories told by Billy Joel or Elton John through song were missing. Jon set out to write songs in that vein. JOEY takes us on a journey through the life of one character who befriends a simple-minded young man. With anintentional tip of the hat to Elton John's "Levon", JOEY allows Jon to climb into another's shoes and tell a story through that character's perspective. A window into one person's world told through song.

THE RIGHT SIDE OF WRONG is a modern-day Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid… good souls involved in wrongdoing but with hearts in the right place. There is anintentional movie feeling to the song… the music and guitar solos help to drive the story and the ending is left open… Again, an intentional nod to the storytelling songwriters that have inspired the band.

The acting world and the magic of movies has had a significant impact on the songwriting of this album. YOU HAD ME FROM HELLO has obvious movie overtones. The phrase, coined by Cameron Crowe in his movie Jerry McGuire,
was a beautiful sentiment. Fleshed out, the song is an ode to a committed relationship. The song honors the ability of someone to constantly see something new and beautiful in the one they love. THE DISTANCE is written in a cinematic style. The music serves as a score to the lyrics, which begins as an establishing shot and the "camera" draws closer into the story as the song progresses. The message reiterates the passion one feels when there is a goal in sight and the determination shownwhen striving to reach that goal.

Finally, OPEN ALL NIGHT, too, has its origin in the acting world. Jon Bon Jovi appeared on Ally McBeal for nine episodes as the character Victor Morrison, a plumber/babysitter/jack-of-all-trades at the home of the title character. While the storyline, especially the romance, took a very long time to evolve onscreen, Jon admitted that, had it been real life, hewould never have allowed it to take so long - it would have happened or he would have moved on. The song OPEN ALL NIGHT is, in essence, Victor's dialogue with Ally, had Jon written the teleplay.

The band worked incredibly hard these past few years… sometimes to the point of exhaustion. And that's a feeling everyone can relate to. When you're world-weary, you need someone or something to breathe the life back into you and allow you to appreciate the world again. LOVE ME BACK TO LIFE is a plea for that nurturing.

The songs on BOUNCE each stand on their own but when the songs are presented together as a whole, they create something greater. Like a Seurat painting… up close, the record is a combination of intricate elements, many layers and many textures. But step back and look at the painting as a whole, and it is a work of art that lends itself to  rediscovery and contemplation upon each viewing. And in the case of BOUNCE, upon each listening.

NEW STUDIO ALBUM 'BOUNCE' SET TO HIT THE ROOF INTERNATIONALLY ON SEPTEMBER 23rd 2002... (Copy of official press release issued today in the UK)
BON JOVI's glorious new studio album 'Bounce' is now confirmed for international launch on September 23rd - 12 signature compositions, ballads & rockers alike, tapping into the classic narrative style at the heart of some of the biggest Bon Jovi hits... The album will come out on October 8 in the US.

Recorded by the US outfit in their home state of New Jersey, the hotly- anticipated 'Bounce' - released via Island - sees Jon Bon Jovi & guitarist Richie Sambora pooling production duties with Luke Ebbin, the man first brought into the fold for previous album 'Crush' (2000) - a double-platinum Stateside smash and an eight-million seller  worldwide.

In lead single 'It's My Life', 'Crush' delivered a song that cut straight to the core of the band's appeal, and new album numbers such as 'Joey', 'Misunderstood' & lead track/video 'Everyday' are even clearer evidence of the four - Bon Jovi, Sambora, David Bryan & Tico Torres - showing just how powerful rock'n'roll can be when it's served up straight from the source, free from the confines of fashion & fad...

With mix-maestro Bob Clearmountain adding the final studio magic, 'Bounce' - the group's eighth studio release - is as cool a slice of the BJ experience as it's possible to get beyond the walls of an arena - the perfect showcase for a record-making, record-breaking, Grammy-nominated act who, 100 million albums and more than 2,000 shows down the line, continue to stir up the senses in a potent way.

2001's 'One Wild Night' - BJ's live debut and a two million-seller - showed that some guys do indeed do it better with the lights off, and later this year the 'international road mode' button is due to be pressed once again. To date, 31 million people in 47 different countries have witnessed Bon Jovi live and in the flesh; the next few months will see those incredible figures seriously starting to grow...

Mtv article: Bon Jovi Album Preview: The Real Meets The Ideal

(courtesy of sapphyree seven & www.Mtv.com)

Ever since their self-titled debut album came out in 1984, Bon Jovi have churned out songs about the triumphs and struggles of young working-class America. It's where Jon Bon Jovi and his bandmates came from, and for many years the singer's experiences and dreams provided abundant subject matter for rousing anthems and heartfelt ballads.

But when former common folk turn into superstars, sometimes it's hard for them to really still empathize with the everyman. That might explain why on his band's new album, Bounce, due October 8, Jon Bon Jovi has once again tapped into what he knows, and it's a combination of what's real and what's ideal.

This time he's not only crooning about working the nine-to-five, growing older and staying true to oneself. He's also getting inspired by what he's seen on TV and in the movies. Considering the political volatility that occurred during the disc's creation, he couldn't help but address what he saw on the news in the wake of September 11 (see "Bon Jovi Want To Help Nation Bounce Back With Next Album"). The title Bounce comes from the idea of bouncing back after a tragedy and re-emerging stronger, wiser and more resilient than before. And the leadoff track, "Undivided," is specifically about the World Trade Center attacks.

"That was my brother lost in the rubble/ That was my sister lost in the crush/ That was our mothers, those were our children/ That was our fathers, that was each of us," he sings. But like his pal and idol Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi doesn't dwell on the misery; instead, he examines the good that can come out of such evil. "Where we once were divided, now we stand united," he sings over a rousing chorus.

Other songs were more directly culled from Hollywood. The title "You Had Me From Hello" borrowed from a line
in the movie "Jerry Maguire," and the Meatloaf-like love song "Open All Night" is based on the fictional relationship his character in "Ally McBeal" had with the heroine of the show.

All kinds of emotions stir through Bounce. While the album is hopeful and romantic throughout, some of the songs are angry and aggressive, reflecting the turbulence and tension that exists in the world today. However, the loud tracks aren't just punchy commercial metal, they're also forward-thinking, suggesting that Jon was tuning into modern rock radio between tapings of "Ally McBeal."

The opening riff in "Undivided" sounds a lot like Weezer's "Hash Pipe," the tweaked, ragged guitars and electronic embellishments on "Everyday" are more than a little like Garbage, and the raw, precise riffery and exultant "I know you can do it, c'mon!" vocals of "Hook Me Up" are reminiscent of the Cult. Of course, all three tracks also feature elements of vintage Bon Jovi, including gradually building dynamics, dramatic vocals and infectious refrains, resulting in a style that introduces listeners to new sounds without jarring them out of their headphones.

No Bon Jovi record is complete without sweeping ballads, and Bounce has several. There's the poignant piano and stirring strings of "Hey Joey," the reflective, lighter-raiser "All About Loving You" and the breathing rhythms and ringing guitars of "Open All Night." Of course, there's plenty of ground between the two extremes, like the exultant mid-paced rocker "The Distance," and "Misunderstood," which simultaneously jangles, grooves and rocks.

Once again, Bon Jovi have created a record that pinpoints the passions, drives and points of interest of their audience, even though the band's frontman is drawing less from personal recollections to help achieve that end.

-Jon Wiederhorn

NEW YORK -- Musician Jon Bon Jovi will promote his band's new album and the 2002 National Football League season during a made-for-television concert in New York's Times Square on Sept. 5.

The event, titled "NFL Kickoff Live From Times Square" will be shown on Viacom Inc.'s CBS network, MTV: Music Television and VH-1, and Walt Disney Co.'s ESPN. CBS and Disney both show NFL games as part of the league's eight-year, $17.6 billion television contract through the 2005 season.

Bon Jovi and his self-named, Monmouth County-based band will sing songs from his new album "Bounce," which will be released in October, and Reebok International Ltd. will promote a new line of NFL clothes, the NFL said in a press release.

Reebok negotiated a 10-year contract in December 2000 to make and sell NFL licensed merchandise, including uniforms, sideline apparel and footwear for all 32 teams. The agreement also gave Reebok the right to develop new NFL apparel lines, and a new line of NFL fitness equipment.

A giant football will be dropped before the start of the San Francisco 49ers-New York Giants game that night, the season's first, similar to the way a lighted ball is dropped on New Year's Eve at the same spot. Bon Jovi will perform at halftime of the game, which is being played at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford.

Other artists will be added to the show, according to a press release from Dan Klores Communications. The event also will recognize New York's memorial events related to the one-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks last Sept. 11.

Rolling Stone article: "New Bon Jovi Due in October"

(cortesy of Loraine Taylor)

Eighth studio set responds to September 11th

New Jersey rock vets Bon Jovi have set an October 8th date for the release of Bounce, the band's eighth studio album and the follow-up to 2000's Grammy-nominated Crush. Frontman Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Richie Sambora and Luke Ebbin -- who also worked on Crush -- re-teamed to co-produce the set.

The album's title refers both to the "bouncing back of the band as well as this country," Bon Jovi told Rolling Stone during the writing sessions, and many of the songs reflect the changed mood of post-September 11th America. "People are going to finally stop and take notice of the wasted time we've spent over the last twenty years doing a whole lot of nothing," he said at the time. "Creating movies and music and art that was somewhat disposable. If you were working on a crap movie the day that that happened, you sit back and ask, 'Is this all I'm doing with my life?'"

The band recently wrapped a video for the album's first single, "Everyday" -- "a big, loud rock song," according to their Web site -- at the Very Large Array astronomical observatory in New Mexico.

Bon Jovi Brave Lightning Storm For 'Everyday' Video
07.22.2002 5:32 PM EDT (courtesy of VH1)

Bon Jovi just wrapped up a video for "Everyday," the first single off their upcoming Bounce, with a performance that can only be called electric.

During the final take, an aerial shot filmed from a helicopter hovering overhead, a lightning storm hit, forcing all "nonessential" personnel (i.e. everyone
but the producer, the cameraman and the band) to evacuate the set, according to the band's spokesperson at Island Records.

The Jersey rockers were shooting in a remote region of Socorro, New Mexico, surrounded by 27 massive satellite dishes at an installation called the Very Large Array, one of the world's largest astronomical radio observatories. The VLA was chosen for the "global feeling" it provided, as the satellite dishes were intended to create the illusion of the band's music broadcast to all corners of the world, the spokesperson said.

In order to further this universal sentiment, camera crews were sent to said corners to capture footage later interspersed throughout the video. Bon Jovi will release "Everyday" later this summer, priming fans for the October 8 release of Bounce, their eighth studio album.

Recorded in the band's home state of New Jersey, Bounce was co-produced by Luke Ebbin, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, the same production team that created 2000's smash album Crush, which went double-platinum in the U.S. and sold 8 million copies worldwide. The band plans an international tour next year.

    The interview was recorded on the 16th of this month on a hotel in NJ. According to the japanese fans that heard the interview, the song "Everyday" isn't finished yet, so the one you have probably already heard on the web or on a radio station isn't the final version. The video isn't ready as well, only the part where the band appears, the rest is being taped on other locations. Jon was going to Los Angeles that day to finish the album, he was looking foward to it cause it would be the first time that we would travel alone with Jesse and Stephanie. The names of the new songs on the album that were confirmed were: Everyday, Misunderstood, I'm all About Loving You, Undivided, The Distance, Joey and  Bounce.

Bon Jovi Completes 'Everyday' At The Very Large Array
Mon Jul 22, 6:57 AM ET (courtesy of Yahoo news)

(7/22/02, 7 a.m. ET) -- New Jersey rockers Bon Jovi recently completed the music video for "Everyday," the first single and music video from the band's upcoming Island Records album, Bounce, due October 8 in the U.S.

The music video was shot at the Very Large Array (VLA) in the plains of San Augustin, 50 miles west of Socorro, New Mexico. VLA is a Y-shaped installation of 27 radio telescopes, and one of the world's premiere astronomical radio observatories. It is operated by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. The VLA may be best known to the general public for its prominent placement in the 1997 movie Contact starring Jodie Foster.

The concept for "Everyday" has the band performing among the 81-foot wide radio satellite dishes, which carry their music around the world. The production required three camera crews to be sent on a global mission to capture footage from various exotic locales and intersperse it throughout the video.

Completing the clip was no easy task thanks to some nasty weather conditions that came courtesy of Mother Nature. Bon Jovi narrowly escaped a severe lightning storm during the final take of the "Everyday" music video. The last take involved a helicopter taking an aerial shot of the band. As the storm approached, the band was at risk of being electrocuted, and all "non-essential" personnel were evacuated from the set, leaving the producer, the cameraman, and the band to quickly wrap things up. The band fled the set unharmed in their vehicles as a fierce torrential rain storm moved in.

Luke Ebbin, Jon Bon Jovi, and Richie Sambora co-produced Bounce, the band's eighth studio album. The album is the follow-up to Bon Jovi's multiplatinum 2000 album, Crush, which was also co-produced by the same trio. Crush has sold more than 8 million copies worldwide, and it spawned the hit singles "It's My Life" and "Thank You For Loving Me".

The video for EVERYDAY was filmed last weekend in the desert of Socorro, New Mexico. Did you see the movie CONTACT (with Jodie Foster and Matthew McConaughey? All those radio antennas... that's called the VERY LARGE ARRAY or VLA for short... that's where the video was shot.) More details and some snapshots are on their way to you.... (the band also completed much of the photosessions for the BOUNCE album artwork out on the West Coast last week.) We're getting closer and closer, folks! ** And remember, if you didn't read it HERE, it is not official. Period. (And if has been announced elsewhere previously and turns out to be confirmed here, know that those who released information before it was intended to be released have been dealt with accordingly! )

NEWS from UNIVERSAL MUSIC


BON JOVI SHOOTS "EVERYDAY," THE PREMIER VIDEO FROM NEW ALBUM "BOUNCE" AT THE NATIONAL RADIO ASTRONOMY OBSERVATORY IN NEW MEXICO, USA

--Sky's The Limit For Multi-Platinum Rock Band As They Complete Work On New Album Due Out September 23rd

(New York, July 15, 2002) -In anticipation of their forthcoming album Bounce, due out on September 23rd from Island Records, Bon Jovi makes a definitive statement with the video for "Everyday," the first release off the new album. Shot on location in Socorro, New Mexico amidst a remote region in the desert, Bon Jovi braved the wildest of weather conditions in order to capture the magnitude of this album on film. The video finds the band performing in the middle of 27 massive satellite dishes, part of an installation called "The Very Large Array" (VLA), one of the world's premier astronomical radio observatories. The video's concept evokes a global feeling where the band performs amongst satellite dishes, which carry their music to all corners of the world. In order to create the visual, three camera crews were sent all over the world to capture footage and intersperse it throughout the video, with no green screens or computer generated images to "transport" the band's performance to exotic locales.

The video shoot proved to be like no other for the band as unexpected special effects from Mother Nature threatened to muscle in on Bon Jovi's screen time. As the band was readying to shoot the final take - an aerial shot filmed through a helicopter hovering overhead - lightning started swirling around, posing the serious threat of electrocution. In fact, the situation became so serious that all "non-essential" personnel were evacuated off the set except for the producer, the cameraman and the band. Bon Jovi narrowly escaped after the final take as torrential rain pelted their caravan - leaving no visibility outside of the lightning lit sky in order to exit the property. A documentary crew was on hand to film the video shoot.

Bounce was co-produced by Luke Ebbin, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, the same team responsible for the multi-platinum Crush. The album was recorded in the band's home state of New Jersey. Bounce, the band's 8th studio album, is the follow up to the incredibly successful album, Crush which sold 8 million copies worldwide (certified double platinum in the U.S.), spawned the hit singles, "It's My Life", "Say It Isn't So" and "Thank You For Loving Me" and earned the group their first ever Grammy nominations for "Best Rock Album" and "Best Rock Performance by Duo or Group" for "It's My Life." Bon Jovi have sold over 92 million albums in their career.
