STEREO SATELLITE TO OPEN FOR BON JOVI IN MILWAUKEE
Band Set to Perform at Bon Jovi’s ‘This House Is Not For Sale 2018 Tour’ at BMO Harris Bradley Center on April 29, 2018
MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN – APRIL 16, 2018 – Due to a scheduling conflict, The Steepwater Band will be unable to open for Bon Jovi at Milwaukee’s BMO Harris Bradley Center on April 29, 2018. Taking their place will be new band Stereo Satellite. Stereo Satellite features members of Disturbed (John Moyer), Adrenaline Mob (Mike Orlando and Jordan Cannata), and Rock Star Supernova (Lukas Rossi). The Steepwater Band will open for Bon Jovi in Chicago.
Bon Jovi’s legacy is as much about giving back as it is about epic performances on record setting tours. In 2017, the Grammy-winning global rock icons and newly announced Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2018 inductees gave 28 talented acts an opportunity to spotlight their talent to capacity crowds on the This House Is Not For Sale Tour. When the This House Is Not For Sale 2018 Tour kicked off in March, bands across North America once again had a shot at a coveted opening slot on the tour.
"Myself & the band could not be more excited to share the stage with such an iconic & legendary band as Bon Jovi! We've all grown up listening to their albums, singing their songs & being motivated by the magnitude of their success to never give up & always follow our musical dream. We cannot thank Bon Jovi enough for this amazing opportunity to perform to all their incredible fans at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI," says Stereo Satellite guitarist, Mike Orlando.
The concert – very likely the last major show to be held at the BMO Harris Bradley Center – will celebrate the building’s vibrant, 30-year history and help close it in style. In recognition of the Center’s three decades of serving the community and Jon Bon Jovi’s long history with the building, a portion of concert proceeds will be donated to charity, including Camp Hometown Heroes, a local program providing caring support to children of fallen U.S. military heroes, said Steve Costello, president and CEO of the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
This is the third tour in recent years that the Grammy Award®-winning band has invited local and regional artists to share the stage (2006’s Have A Nice Day Tour and 2010’s The Circle Tour). Those chosen will demonstrate that they have the sound, style, and substance to open an arena show.
The This House Is Not for Sale Tour (2017) was Bon Jovi’s first outing since the band’s 2013 Because We Can World Tour. 2013’s tour was their fourth in six years to be ranked the No. 1 top-grossing tour in the world (a feat accomplished by only The Rolling Stones previously) with a total of $259.5 million. Bon Jovi also earned the No. 1 grossing worldwide tour in 2010 for The Circle Tour, with $201 million total, and 2008’s Lost Highway tour, which earned $210.6 million. Bon Jovi’s touring legacy was recognized with the “Legend of Live” award at the Billboard Touring Conference & Awards prior to the kick-off of The This House Is Not for Sale Tour.
Bon Jovi’s No. 1 debuting album, This House Is Not For Sale, has been reissued by Island Records and is available now as This House Is Not For Sale (When We Were Us) containing two new tracks Both “When We Were Us” and “Walls. ”Both “When We Were Us” and “Walls,” were written by Jon Bon Jovi, who was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2007, and John Shanks. The songs reflect current events, both personal and nationwide, respectively.
