KIBBLES AND BITS...(Friday, May 13, 2005)

Most of this has been announced before but we hoped to put a current reminder here on the news page for you all now that what was 'in the future' is now 'just around the corner' --

This SUNDAY, MAY 15th is the final home game for the Philadelphia Soul (their season ends on May 22nd in Dallas.) JON BON JOVI will definitely be in attendance. Kickoff is at 1pm. The game is not being aired on NBC unfortunately (not even in the Philly area - the national game is Tampa Bay vs. New York) However, NBC will be airing the MICHAEL DOUGLAS & FRIENDS Golf Tournament at 4pm on Sunday, May 15th. (Again, check your times locally.) This golf tournament took place on SUNDAY, MAY 1st outside LAS VEGAS. RICHIE SAMBORA was in Vegas and performed with BON JOVI at the 10th Anniversary Concert for the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino -- the next morning he headed out to the golf course along with his wife, HEATHER LOCKLEAR, to participate in the celebrity golf tournament. The two were split up on the course - RICHIE's golf partner was CATHERINE ZETA-JONES. It was filmed and edited for the Sunday airing. (Many of the celebs in town for that event headed over to the Bon Jovi show for their Saturday night entertainment while in Vegas.)

JON BON JOVI will be a part of the SEASON FINALE of the NBC series LAS VEGAS. It airs on MONDAY, MAY 23 (PLEASE check your local listings.) JON (co-owner of the Philadelphia Soul AFL team) revisits the buddy-flick style of the AFL's 'RUMBLE IN THE HOUSE' tv commercials by reteaming with Colorado Crush co-owner JOHN ELWAY. The two trade practical jokes and attempt to get teh best of each other throughout the finale. Philadelphia Soul items as well as authentic Bon Jovi items were shipped to the LA wardrobe/costume department during the filming of the episode so we'll see where they might turn up in the show. There is a commercial for the season finale at www.nbc.com (click on choose a show, choose Las Vegas and on the right of the screen, there is a featured video)

RICHIE SAMBORA will be on the MONDAY, MAY 23rd episode of CBS' series STILL STANDING. Richie is 'Reverend Roach' - again, please check your LOCAL LISTINGS (depending upon what part of the country you're in, it will air at different times.)

The band won't be lounging poolside all summer - there's lots of work ahead of them with a new album coming out... and though there is no Bon Jovi tour there will some sightings (like the Miller BrewHaHa in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on August 20th -- they're not the only band on the very cool bill...) and more and more news as we get the summer underway. The big machine is greasing up the gears and warming up the engines getting ready for a roll-out in Bon Jovi fashion. Stay tuned for more info - honestly, there are lots of great things that are just in the early planning stages and its not information to be shared yet. Things changes all the time - nothing will be announced on this site until its really, truly ready to be shared by BON JOVI. We know you're all just killing for some tidbits of info -- when there's real confirmed locked-in info, and when the band gives us the OK to share it, we will...
