"...established bands such as Eric Clapton, the Who and Neil Young..."

Only one of those names is an established band. Perhaps the writer meant to say established brand.

Why do people give a f**k about Bon Jovi, a band that had a half dozen listenable radio hits, whereas their peers from that era like Def Leppard and Poison are maligned or ignored?

There's a rumor going around that life isn't fair

A total gross of $87.7 million was enough to put The Rolling Stones in the No. 3 position on Pollstar’s Top 100 Worldwide Tours chart while the same figures enabled the band to capture the top slot on our Top 100 North American tours. Sporting a heart-stopping average ticket price of $346.09, the original bad boys of rock played 18 shows in 11 cities, grossed an average of $7,969,276 per show and sold 253,296 tickets overall.

Bon Jovi is like a bad haircut that just won't go away.

Don't know if you've ever seen them live, but they are really fantastic. The fact that almost every BJ tour is #1 of the year, in this case mid-term is saying something.

I believe at this point, Bon Jovi has played to more people than the Stones have. Hard to believe but when you take into consideration that they're always touring, it's not that unreasonable. They've been touring regularly since the mid 80's. The band seem to be really big in Europe, able to sell out stadiums sometimes more than one night.
On this current tour, Richie Sambora dropped out. Rumour has it over money issues.
I've seen them once, in 86, on the Slippery When Wet tour in Vancouver. Lots of hype for the show because that album made them huge and it was recorded in Vancouver. No interest in seeing them again after that.

No big deal, anyway, but i' don't think so. No way. At the end of his current tour, probably Bon Jovi will have played to more people than the Stones have, since, say, 2000. But in general, no comparisons.

Let's analyze it. According to Billboard, during the first decade of 21th Century, the Stones had a total attendance 8,236,586 which, Rio's free concert included, comes up to 9.5 million aprox. In the same years (2000- 2010), Bon Jovi had total attendance 5,384,741. We must add up 1,519,598 from 2011 tour and aprox. 1,5, so far, from the current round which is a huge one (many dates, stadiums included). So, at it's end Bon Jovi will have a precedence - maybe a slight one - over the Stones, as for the period 2000- 2013.

But in the years 1989- 1999 the Stones have played to 18 million people (and on their entire carrer, to 37- 38 million). And i think the band that can "catch" these numbers is U2, not Bon Jovi.

Hi laertisflash, great information. I recall reading somewhere fairly recently that stated Bon Jovi has played to around 34 million. From 86 onward they have been an arena/stadium act and I figure they toured the last half of that decade straight for Slippery and then New Jersey.
I was dumbfounded, being a huge VH fan, when I saw back in 95 that Van Halen actually opened for them on their European stadium tour.

Hi, DGA. Of course, 34 million is a hugest number. More than what i expected.

I think a lot of us here saw them open for the Stones at Longchamp in 1995 and...it was totally underwhelming and I quite liked their records at the time. Not ideal conditions for them of course, but still, nothing to write home about ;-)

Thanks, island01. Very interesting and "fresh" statistics. I just colleted the numbers you mention with statistics for 2000 - 2010 (*), published on Billboard's Boxscore. It seems like "2000 - 2010" set doesn't include the three last months of 2010. But as for Bon Jovi, something doesn't make sense...

According to the two statistic "sets" (2000 - 2010 and 2000 - 2013), Bon Jovi has played to 8,555,949 people doing 325 shows in the last three years! But, according to the perticular numbers, since 2011 he has played to 2,963,566, so far. And the gigs are 154 for the time being (59 from the 2011 tour and 95 on the current round). Whatever is "coming" from the last months of the 2010 tour (total tour's attendance 1.9 million, 85 gigs), the figure "attendance 8,556,000 in the last three years" seems totally inexplicable. Oh, i feel dizzy with all these estimates...



(*) 2000- 2010

The Rolling Stones : 264 shows, 8,236,586 attendance
U2: 288 shows, 9,869,953 attendance
Bruce Springsteen: 403 shows, 8,605,238 attendance
Bon Jovi : 249 shows, 5,384,747 attendance
Madonna: 248 shows, 6,837,124 attendance

I wish I was older to see that. smiling smiley That tour was great for them, 3 sold out Wembley stadium concerts.

They toured a lot last few years and will pass 600 concert (2000-2013) this year when BWC tour wraps. I've just cheched and these numbers are correct, at least number of shows. But with so many sold out stadium shows last tour, it is possible they also have this attendance.

Crush tour (2000): 39 shows
One Wild Night (2001): 54
Bounce tour (2002-2003): 83
Have a Nice day Tour (2005-2006): 89
Lost Highway tour (2007-2008): 99
The Circle Tour (2010): 85
Bon Jovi Live (2011): 59
Because We Can tour (2013): 95 shows planned

I am still impressed with U2 numbers.

Maybe I am an Idiot or just simplfying the shit out of it. If they were handing out seat upgrades at almost every show how were these total sellouts.

They give a person who had a crappy ticket already in the arena a better ticket.

Where did those tickets come from if it was sold out?

Maybe they took the crappy tickets they collected from the upgraded people and ran back down to the box office and resold all of them just before the show actually ended.

No matter what formula or Mega Physics they use if there are unsold tickets still
available or floating around during a show. IT'S NOT A SELL OUT
