(October 20, 2010 – New York, NY) Over 1 billion consumer impressions worldwide – encompassing social networks and traditional media – will support the November 9th release of Bon Jovi’s brand new GREATEST HITS compilation on Island Records, featuring new single, “What Do You Got?” - the fastest growing Hot AC single in Bon Jovi’s history!
The project is topped by several high-profile campaigns – ranging from the ongoing “It’s My Life Animoto Video Contest” at BonJovi.com/ItsMyLife; to the two-month Comcast takeover (reaching 26 million households); and the unprecedented 45 minute “Live on Letterman” webcast concert performance (presented by AT&T) on the release date, November 9th, in conjunction with the band’s two-song broadcast appearance on the show that same night.
Prior to Bon Jovi’s Letterman date on November 9th, the band will perform live at the MTV EMAs in Madrid on November 7th, where they will be presented with the first-ever Global Icon Award. The next night, November 8th marks the premiere of the Bon Jovi movie One Night Only, documenting their historic concerts at the New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey in May 2010. One Night Only will premiere on over 750 movie screens worldwide.
In addition to the Letterman date on November 9th, Clear Channel Stripped/iheartradio will also air a 5-song performance broadcast on over 450 radio station websites. November 9th also marks the launch of the new RockBand 3 video game, featuring Bon Jovi. Another historic event will take place on November 10th, when New York’s WPLJ radio presents Bon Jovi Live from the Best Buy Theater in Times Square, at which the band will give fans an intimate sneak preview of their upcoming 2011 world tour.
Bon Jovi’s November 9th Letterman webcast concert performance, which will stream live on www.cbs.com/late_night/liveonletterman and VEVO.com, and will be broadcast on CBS radio stations nationwide, kicks off nearly a month of live tv performances in support of the album. These continue with NBC’s The Today Show (Nov. 12th); A&E’s Private Sessions (Nov. 14th); ABC’s American Music Awards (Nov. 21st); the syndicated Ellen (Nov. 23rd); CNN’s Heroes (Nov. 25th); and CNN’s Larry King Live (interview only, Nov. 29th).
Bon Jovi GREATEST HITS will transport listeners back in time through the band’s worldwide monster hits of the past and offer a bridge to the future with the debut of four brand new tracks. The single-CD 16-song program will be chock full of their biggest chart-toppers including “Livin’ On A Prayer,” “Always,” “It’s My Life,” “Wanted Dead or Alive,” and “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” to name a few. Two new songs round out the tracklisting, including the new single “What Do You Got?” whose video was shot in stunning stereoscopic 3D with noted director Wayne Isham.
A second configuration, GREATEST HITS - THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION will be a 28-song double-CD package. Disc one will contain the 16-song standard edition CD, and disc two will feature beloved fan favorites including “Bed of Roses,” “Blood on Blood,” “These Days,” and “Keep The Faith,” to name a few. Disc two will also contain the third and fourth new tracks. All four new tracks – “What Do You Got?,” “The More Things Change,” “No Apologies,” and “This Is Love, This Is Life” – were written and recorded specifically for inclusion in this compilation.
The complete tracklistings for Bon Jovi GREATEST HITS and Bon Jovi GREATEST HITS - THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION is available at BonJovi.com. THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION will also be available on vinyl as a limited edition 4-LP box set, and also as a Bon Jovi logo-shaped USB flash drive.
