In January, Jon Bon Jovi announced on Facebook Live an exciting opening act contest to give bands the chance to open an arena date on Bon Jovi’s "This House Is Not For Sale Tour". To enter the competition, thousands of bands uploaded audition videos at www.bonjovi.com/2017-opening-act-contest/ or the Bon Jovi and Live Nation Facebook pages. To pick the winner for each tour date, Live Nation chose 10 finalists and Bon Jovi management selected the contest winner from the shortlist. After an intense competition, IAMDYNAMITE has been chosen as the winner of Bon Jovi’s opening act contest for Detroit. In addition to opening for Bon Jovi at Joe Louis Arena the band will also be featured across Live Nation and Bon Jovi’s Facebook pages.
"We are beyond excited to play a show with the legendary Bon Jovi! ‘Wanted Dead or Alive’ may be the greatest song ever written,” said Chris Phillips from IAMDYNAMITE. "On top of playing in our hometown with rock idols, we get to play at Joe Louis Arena! Detroit icon itself," added Chris Martin. “We are prepared to honor Bon Jovi, The Joe, and Detroit with this privilege we've been given opening the show."
The This House Is Not for Sale Tour is Bon Jovi’s first outing since the band’s 2013 Because We Can World Tour, which was their third tour in six years to be ranked the #1 top-grossing tour in the world (a feat accomplished by only The Rolling Stones previously). Bon Jovi’s touring legacy was recently recognized on Nov. 9th at the 2016 “Legend of Live” award at the Billboard Touring Conference & Awards.

This House Is Not for Sale is Bon Jovi’s first major release since What About Now (2013), the band’s 3rd consecutive multi-platinum album to debut at No. 1 on the Top 200 (Lost Highway in 2007, and The Circle in 2009).
