Jon Bon Jovi’s Net Worth in 2024


The rock legend from New Jersey has been around for decades so what is Jon Bon Jovi‘s net worth in 2024? Let’s dive into one of the most popular rockstars of all time.  

How did Jon Bon Jovi get his start?

A New Jersey native to his core, Jon Bon Jovi (real name: Jon Bongiovi) spent his formative years playing in Asbury Park in several different bands, including Atlantic City Expressway, John Bongiovi and the Wild Ones and The Rest. 

Everything changed in 1982, however, when he recorded “Runaway” with a session band and found himself with a radio hit on his hands. At that point, he assembled keyboardist David Bryan, bassist Alec John Such (who left the band in 1994 and died in 2022), drummer Tico Torres and, shortly after, guitarist Richie Sambora (who replaced initial guitarist Dave Sabo and also left the band in 2013) to form Bon Jovi in 1983. 

The band’s self-titled album (with its first single “Runaway”) came out in January 1984, and a legendary rock band was born. 

“If you’re not going to be great, the guy that’s coming in tomorrow night is going to be better,” Bon Jovi said while promoting Hulu’s four-part documentary about the band, Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story, which started streaming April 26.

“This isn’t a career that you should take lightly. There’s a million other young guys that are waiting to take your spot. And there are no guarantees in this business…You have to win hearts in order to win people’s hard-earned dollar. If you’re asking them to stay with you for four decades, that’s a task. You better be one of the greats or else good luck.”

What are Bon Jovi’s biggest hits?

  1. “Livin’ on a Prayer”
    This anthemic song from their 1986 album “Slippery When Wet” is arguably Bon Jovi’s signature tune. With its memorable lyrics about young lovers Tommy and Gina, powerful vocals, and Richie Sambora’s famous talk box guitar riff, “Livin’ on a Prayer” became their second #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. It remains one of the most popular rock songs of the 1980s.

  2. “You Give Love a Bad Name”
    The lead single from “Slippery When Wet”, this up-tempo rocker with its catchy chorus was Bon Jovi’s first #1 hit in 1986. The song’s music video also received heavy rotation on MTV, further boosting its popularity.

  3. “Wanted Dead or Alive”
    Drawing inspiration from Old West outlaw imagery, this track from “Slippery When Wet” with its distinctive guitar riffs and cowboy metaphors became an enduring rock radio staple for Bon Jovi.
  4. “Always”
    This power ballad from their 1994 album “Keep the Faith” showcased a more mature sound for the band. The emotional lyrics and Jon Bon Jovi’s passionate vocals made it a major adult contemporary hit, reaching #4 on the Hot 100.
  5. “It’s My Life”
    Marking a return to their rock roots after exploring other genres, this 2000 single from “Crush” brought Bon Jovi back to the top of the charts, peaking at #33 on the Hot 100. Its memorable music video also received heavy airplay.

Other major hits for Bon Jovi include “Bad Medicine”, “I’ll Be There for You”, “Bed of Roses”, and “Have a Nice Day”, cementing their status as one of the most commercially successful rock acts of all time.

Is Bon Jovi still making music?

Bon Jovi is still making music. In fact, the band has its 16th studio album, Forever, coming out on June 7, 2024. But a vocal cord injury recently threatened to knock Bon Jovi the singer out of the live-performance game. 

Speaking to People, he recalled his wife Dorothea telling him his voice was off on his 2022 tour. A subsequent trip to the doctor revealed that one of his vocal cords was atrophying.

“This was unique. It wasn’t a nodule,” he told the AP. “The strong [vocal cord] was pushing the weak one around, and suddenly, my inabilities were just exacerbated.” He underwent surgery and now, two years on, works with vocal coaches and does daily exercises as part of his recovery. 

“Every day is sort of like doing curls with weights and just getting them [his vocal cords] both to be the same size and to function together,” he told the outlet. “The process has been steady. Would I like it to be a light switch? Yeah. I said to the doctor, ‘I want to flip the switch and be done with this.’ It’s just not how it works… I’m confident that it gets progressively better.”

What is Jon Bon Jovi’s net worth in 2024?

In the same year, Bon Jovi upgraded to a stunning Mediterranean-style mansion in Palm Beach, Florida for a whopping $43 million. This luxurious pad, which he still owns, spans more than 10,000 square feet and features 7 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a courtyard pool and direct beach access.
