Had a blast at Slane?
Jon Bon Jovi says that he has no plans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Bon Jovi's fourth album, New Jersey. New Jersey, which was certified platinum seven times, topped the Billboard 200 charts for a solid month, produced five Top Ten singles - including the two chart-toppers "Bad Medicine" and "I'll Be There for You."
Bon Jovi, who play in Milan, Italy tomorrow night (June 29th) told us that saluting New Jersey any more than including songs from the album in the band's show is pushing it for him: "Yeah, that came and went with Slippery (When Wet) and I don't need that kind of stuff. Y'know, I've always just remained in the moment. I know that next summer there was like the 30th (anniversary) of. . . since our first record, and should we choose to. . . I don't really get caught up in that. I don't know why; maybe it's just because we continued to remain current as we do that I don't need to repackage something in. . . I don't know. I just don't really get caught up in it."
