Jon Bon Jovi Tribute: Slippery When Wet
Slippery When Wet – The Ultimate Bon Jovi Tribute was formed in 2003 by Jason Morey. The Ultimate Bon Jovi Tribute has taken exact live arrangements from Bon Jovi’s 2000’s Crush tour, 2002’s Bounce tour, 2005’s Have a Nice Day tour, 2008’s Lost Highway tour and 2010’s The Circle tour to form what Jason refers to as an “Arena- Club Show”. With further explanation Jason thinks that “Slippery When Wet has the power to turn a 600-1500 capacity club into a 20,000-seat arena for 2 1/2 hours”.
Bon Jovi’s career spans 30+ years and over 130 million albums sold worldwide. The band has tracked 14 Billboard top ten singles of which 8 of those went straight to number 1. In 2018 Bon Jovi was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame.
Slippery When Wet believes that Bon Jovi has the right kind of song catalog that really lends itself to being performed live as well as fitting into a broad age range that makes for the perfect club demographic.
Slippery When Wet has played over 1500 shows throughout the U.S. alone and has traveled to Africa, Mexico, Singapore, Puerto Rico, Honduras and the Dominican Republic. They have headlined on over 60 cruises on the Royal Caribbean cruise line and played the pre-game of Super Bowl 48. The bands shows are the most attended and highest grossing of any Bon Jovi Tribute in the country.
