Lost Highway CD Review by Sven Philipp

Inspired by the crossover success of “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” a No. 1 hit at country radio, Bon Jovi gives its open-hearted stadium rock a Nashville makeover. “Lost Highway” is a collection of carefully country-flavored, classic-sounding tunes emphasizing acoustic guitars and personal storytelling—from the regretful “Whole Lot of Leaving” and the breezy “Any Other Day” to the charming “Seat Next to You.” Making new friends, the boys party-rock with Big & Rich (“We Got It Goin’ On”) and slow-dance with LeAnn Rimes on “Till We Ain’t Strangers Anymore,” an intimate duet. Old fans may gasp at the fiddles on the opening title track, and somewhere out there, Keith Urban will blush. But this is an exciting new chapter for Bon Jovi, one that started more than 20 years ago with the line, “I’m a cowboy/On a steel horse I ride.” —Sven Philipp

Lost Highway






In June 2007, Bon Jovi released their new tenth studio album album, Lost Highway. The first single from the new album was “(You Want to) Make a Memory” and it debuted (and peaked) at #27 in the Billboard Hot 100, Bon Jovi’s highest ever debut in the charts.

The band confirmed that there will be no world tour to promote the new album, making it the first studio album of original material not to be followed by a promotional tour since 7800 °Fahrenheit released over twenty years ago. Rumours speculate that this is due to another album due to be released later in the year (either a studio album or greatest hits), however there has been no confirmation of this. Richie Sambora has said in an interview that the group is planning a greatest hits tour in the autumn, however it is still unknown if this will accompany a new greatest hits album. When asked on American Idol May 2nd, Jon Bon Jovi announced that an official tour will not start until January of 2008, but 10 shows in their home state New Jersey will take place in October and November, including the opening of the brand new Prudential Center arena in downtown Newark. A few weeks later in another interview he said the band had plans for a world tour in early 2008, that the tour is being routed at the moment and is likely to begin in Australia or Japan. This means that Bon Jovi will tour Australia for the first time since the These Days Tour in 1995 (except for their “One Wild Night” visit in 2001).

To promote the new album, Bon Jovi appeared at the 6th annual CMT Awards in Nashville on April 16th, on American Idol on May 2nd, on MTV Unplugged on June 22nd, and will appear at one of the Live Earth concerts on July 7th. Bon Jovi will also be the first group to perform at the new O2 Arena (formerly the Millennium Dome) when it opens to the public on June 24th. The 23,000-seater stadium sold out within one minute of tickets being released. They will also be performing select dates in July.

On 6 June 2007, however, Richie Sambora checked himself into a rehabilitation facility[4]. This meant that he was missing for a concert in Puerto Rico as well as several television appearances, with backup guitarist Bobby Bandiera taking his place. He checked out on 13 June, and should be present for Bon Jovi’s remaining summer concerts.
