Chile concert + Love for Sale live audio + JBJ on ABC7

I can't find the link to the article on the impossible-to-navigate anymore, but anyway, a tour date has been announced for Chile:

October 1, 2010 - Santiago, Chile - Estadio Nacional

Exclusive Zona Entel pre sale with 20% discount from 8 to 14 August. General Public Sale as of August 15, Zona Entel 10% discount Sold by Ticketmaster - - 690 2000 and authorized sales points

It's listed on the tour page, as well as in the announcement about Backstage JBJ pre-sales for Chile, Peru and Costa Rica.

Now for the Bon Jovi themed weeks that are forcing me to actually visit that godforsaken site... :P Obie has released a live audio recording of "Love for Sale" which you can listen to here or access the mp3 directly at this link. Earlier in the week, a video of "Raise Your Hands" from the O2 was released on the Videos page.

I'm a tad confused, since I thought this week was meant to be themed around Bon Jovi and 7800 Fahrenheit, but so far we've had a song from Slippery When Wet and New Jersey. I'm not complaining about the releases themselves; just wondering why the only evidence I've seen that this week is about the first two albums is the fact that merchandise related to those eras is on special. :P

I didn't tune into the stream of Live from London, given I own it on DVD and have watched it countless times on musicMAX as well, but apparently it was a huge success.

And finally, here's an interview on ABC7 with Jon Bon Jovi ahead of the Chicago shows. Jon talks about the city of Chicago, playing live, his influences and the changing music industry, and seems to imply that he DOES want to play songs from The Circle but isn't digging the reaction he's been getting to them. (I've drafted an "open letter" of sorts about The Circle which I'll post sometime during this break in the tour).
