    Hello Jon,
    How are you?
    My name is Carol, I am a Brazilian fan and this isn’t the first time that I write for you. The first letter that I sent to Backstage Bon Jovi was there are almost 20 years ago…much time no? Definitely, my letter was one of million letters received by Bon Jovi.
    I’ve watched o Bon Jovi social feed, Facebook and Instagram, as Bon Jovi band and you have done a good job in the USA, not only as a rock in roll band, but showing for world important actions with social programme. Congratulations for the job in JBJ Foundation. It’s really a nice and great initiative! A great class about being human currently!
    I’m not more a teenager, so I will not behave as such as 20 years ago and believe I will not go to any concert here in Brazil, unfortunately, I need to save money. But happier that go to Bon Jovi concert will be at any moment in the future to do an interchange in the USA to improve my poor English and work in your foundation. It will be a pleasure to me!
    So, you continue making a fantastic job, good music, give support to new artists and help the needy people.
    The Bon Jovi it’s really a family band and I always love all the members. Congratulations to Richie Sambora, yesterday was your birthday!
    You have a nice and beautiful family! It’s nice, very nice!
    Thank you very much for reading my letter. Until September many things can happen, inclusive watching Bon Jovi concert! 🙂
    PS1.: My house and my family are opening to receive your kids to do an interchange in Brazil.
    PS2.: Give me the opportunite to go to the concert in São Paulo. Only 1 ticket on the Premium zone is enough. My year didn’t have any enjoyment. Please.

    A strong hug and a big kiss!

  3. I was suppose to see you here in Texas. My last two years have been really hard and grieving the lost of my husband, soul mate and best friend that I was lucky to share 23 years with him. He promised to take me. We would go somewhere camping and play your CD. We would dance with your songs playing and peoples would watch us. He never be able to see you and now maybe even me. I be turning 62 this year. Maybe I can see you back here in Houston. You were one of things in my bucket list I wanted to see. I’ve learned that peoples take advantage of someone when they are alone and week. I love to see you in concert. Please let me know when you will be back on Texas.

  5. Hi! I’ve been a big fan since back then in the 80’s. It’s amazing how Bon Jovi manages to keep faithful to it’s roots in hard rock and, at the same time, renew itself and get better and better as time goes by. I’ve been to the Rock in Rio show and I say: Tico still runs the drums like a magician with it’s wand, David fingers are pure extensions of the keys on the keyboard, Hugh is the master of the bass, Phill not only brought back the joy and youth to the group, but also treats the guitar with passion, and Jon’s amazing voice and performance on stage states it clear the reason why the band is named after himself – not to mention that he’s still got the most charming and beautiful smile in the rock scenario ever! (Sorry, Jon! I know you don’t like it when fans refer only to your looks. You are above any doubts very talented and God knows how hard you’ve worked all these years. But, your smile is legendary, what can I say?) Love the band, love and admire you all individually and, though devastated I miss my copy of the “Slippery when Wet” CD, which track had been a turning point in my life, please be sure I celebrate this 31-year anniversary with all my heart! Bon Jovi forever!

  6. Slippery When Wet, my favourite album hands down. Changed my life! Every song, from “Let it Rock” to “Wild in the Streets” is great. No filler. I have literally bought this album in some form at least a dozen times, probably closer to 20. I don’t even know how many cassettes I wore out. I’ve bought different editions of the CDs and purchased the DualDisc. This is the one album that I still NEED to listen to front to back, from beginning to end. Greatest Rock Album Ever!!!

  7. I’m from Brazil!!!
    Bon Jovi is the best band on the planet! Hall of Fame well deserved! I’ll be in Cleveland to accompany this award!!!
