Bon Jovi Set New Album Release
"We Weren't Born To Follow" was written (and co-produced) by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, and was produced by John Shanks, who worked with Bon Jovi on their last two albums, Have A Nice Day (2005) which featured the Grammy winning single, "Who Says You Can't Go Home," and Lost Highway (2007), which debuted at #1 on the Soundscan Charts in the U.S. and around the world. The resulting "Lost Highway World Tour" – which famously started with 10 triumphant nights in New Jersey and came to a close with an historic free concert in New York City's Central Park and two sold-out nights at Madison Square Garden – was ranked as 2008's #1 top-selling tour around the world according to Billboard.
Bon Jovi has set the standard for more than two decades as one of the most successful rock bands in the world. Globally, the Grammy Award-winning band has sold more than 120 million albums and performed more than 2,600 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 34 million fans.

[Side note: Apologies to our readers who are Bon Jovi fans for being late in publishing this one. Someone who appeared to be a fan kindly forwarded it to us on Wednesday, but when we tried to confirm its accuracy with the label publicist (that was listed with it) they never got back to us. Luckily, the band has their own outside publicist who is on the ball and took the 30 seconds to get back to us right away and confirmed the info you see above. Our mistake, we should have gone to their PR person in the first place and we could have brought this info to you sooner. There is a lesson to be learned here.]
