Bon Jovi

Adrian Deevoy, Q, January 1989

"BON JOVI... Back To Kick Ass" declare the T-shirts outside the Royal Dublin Society Arena. Below this raunchy statement of intent is the list of dates scheduled for Bon Jovi's ongoing assault on the world. Cynics say that starting a world tour in Ireland, with its modest market percentage, is akin to having a public dress rehearsal prior to starting the tour proper. To this charge, Bon Jovi say, "Bullshit!"
