As always it is great to have Bon Jovi back especially with a brand new studio album. Their new single because we can is off to a flying start on itunes and is currently number 11 in the UK, #15 IN Ireland and #25 in the US. It looks like it will be their biggest hit in a while, shame they havnt a show like x factor etc to do promo on this week.

With the current album sales climate i think Bon Jovi may just get another number 1 album to their name, their albums always open on decent sales so hopefully the new album will see them make a return to the top.

Wow I didn't know it was released here yet, heard it earlier from the 1:30sec clip and wasn't feeling it. Hearing it all I love it

And for people that think Bon Jovi is just for the dads, I'm 21 and I love them ;')

Truly awful. Low point for a once great band.

Not heard anything yet but used to go to heavy rock discos when they first come out i called them "Bon Wimpy" as they are just not heavy enough.

But good luck to therm though as they are having a long music career which is tough.

Speaking as a long time fan - over 20 years I am disappointed with the single but hoping for something better from the new album in the spring. I too long for a return to the wonderful tracks on These Days !
I have seen them live many times but this is the first time I haven t bought tickets for the tour - I did hear they were playing in London on July 5th but haven t heard any more details . Has anyone ?

I agree 100%, heard the new single on the radio today and was wondering who was singing this crap and they then said it's the new Bon Jovi track.....i almost choked.

It's truly awful indeed

I thought it was quite good actually. Some nice guitar sounds going on, I reckon it will get better with repeated listens.

One of the best live bands I ever saw...over a few years too...they really put a performance on for the fans.

Had the email from AEG saying London July 5th as well but the venue remains unknown at the moment.

The scary thing to me is how much more fanciable JBJ seems to become as the years roll by, just like Bryan Adams before him

Rumour at the moment is Hyde Park.


I like the new song. granted its not their best work but i don't think anyone should expect it to be. I'll listen to this over and over again unlike Who says you can't go home and I love this town. The new song reminds me of the crush album but it all feels more like a Jon Bon Jovi solo single rather than the band.

think I read somewhere that Hyde Park isn t going to be used anymore because of the strict curfew ? I did wonder if they might play the olympic stadium as that is being turned into a music venue starting in July ?

Have to agree.

I've been a fan since Keep The Faith and These Days but haven't been overly impressed with the newer stuff (still bought the albums and like some songs) but I'm loving this song.

Just hope the album is as good.

The new album doesnt get released until March, they must be launching the album on the back of the second single. They need major promotion of the second single if it stand even a slight chance of entering the top 75.

It may be lame, I know they could never recreate:

Slippery When Wet
New Jersey
Keep The Faith

But everyone needs to see them at least once live. Love a bit of Bon Jovi, part of my youth!

It'll flop more than Richie Samboras hair did in 1986.
Like most rock bands now,only their true fans will download their new stuff.
Shame,as Bon Jovi did some good tunes 25 years ago.

Their album still sell well enough though, download wise isnt in their favour in relation to singles and thats why i was surprised the single went top 40. I still think the album will so well and their album still sell hugely well in America.

I like the new song. Perhaps their best single in a long while.

I am so seeing them live this year
