The Rise and Sudden Fall Of Bon Jovi's 'This House Is Not For Sale'

March 13, 2018

Earlier this month, the latest album offering from Jon Bon Jovi and his band of merry men, This House Is Not For Sale, reached the number 1 spot, again, on the Billboard 200 album chart -- no small feat for a band that has been around since the early '80s. Now that the highly anticipated tour is underway, and the band is gearing up to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this April, it seems everything is coming up Milhouse. 

But alas, there has been a bump in the road.

The record has taken a steep dive, falling from the number 1 spot to number 168 in just one week marking the biggest-ever drop in Billboard chart history. Interestingly enough, this has happened before to Bon Jovi, with this same album. When This House... was released in November of 2016, the album dropped 84 places in its second week of being out. 

The reason for the album's position shooting up after being out for over a year -- linked concert ticket sales with the record.

Bon Jovi is set to kick off another run of North American dates on March 14th.
