Bon Jovi’s Massive, Career-Spanning, 17-Album Vinyl Box Set set for release


With over 130 million albums sold, an extensive catalog of hit anthems, and nearly 3000 concerts performed in 50 countries for over 35 million fans, Bon Jovi is simply one of the world’s most successful bands, ever. As their new album, This House Is Not For Sale, debuts at #1 in the US, Australia and Japan and in the Top 5 in 54 other countries, Island/UMe announces that a comprehensive vinyl box set of 25-LPs, entitled Bon Jovi: The Albums, will be released in February 2017. It will include all Bon Jovi albums and additional titles (as outlined below) for premium collectors. The box set release will coincide with the kick-off of the band’s This House Is Not For Sale Tour in North America. Alternately, Island/UMe has made every Bon Jovi album from the past thirty-two years available for individual purchase on high-quality vinyl now.

Bon Jovi Vinyl Box Set

Every vinyl album preserves the original look and sound of the originals – all LP jackets are exact replicas of the original album cover and songs have been mastered to the band’s specifications to ensure exceptional audio quality. There are also plenty of “firsts” – this will be the first time Bon Jovi’s albums from the 2000’s have been pressed in any territory before, others will receive their first-ever U.S. vinyl releases, while many are being pressed for the first time in decades.

Bon Jovi has created some of the most recognizable songs ever. From ubiquitous hits like “Livin’ On A Prayer,” “You Give Love A Bad Name,” “Bad Medicine,” “Always” and “It’s My Life” to back-to-back-to-back-to-back #1 albums – Lost Highway, The Circle, What About Now, and This House Is Not For Sale –  their music, filled with indelible melodies and infectious hooks has created an enduring, ongoing legacy.

The band’s 14th album, This House Is Not For Sale, is available now on Island/UMG, and reunites Bon Jovi with Grammy Award®-winning producer John Shanks, who began working with the band in 2005, on the RIAA platinum Have A Nice Day, which entered the charts at #1 in 15 countries worldwide. This is Bon Jovi’s first major release since 2013’s What About Now, which was the band’s third consecutive multi-platinum album to enter Soundscan at #1 (following Lost Highway in 2007 and The Circle in 2009).
