"Bon Jovi" is an American rock and roll band from New Jersey. Fronted by lead singer and namesake Jon Bon Jovi, the group originally achieved large-scale success in the 1980s as a hair metal band.

Bon Jovi has sold more than 33 million albums in the United States, and over 110 million albums worldwide, and has played live concerts in major cities in Asia, Europe, Australia, Canada, and South America, in addition to a large number of cities in the U.S.
