The impressive net worth of Bon Jovi is the result of his diligent work ethic and the longevity of his career. 

Trivia: Despite Bon Jovi's massive success, Jon comes from humble beginnings. He still lived with his parents in Sayreville, New Jersey, while recording the band’s first three albums.

How Much Does Bon Jovi Make from His Music?

Bon Jovi has sold over 130 million albums worldwide with his band, making him one of the richest rock stars in history. Their catalog includes 15 studio albums, three live albums, five compilation albums, five EPs, 66 singles, 14 video albums, and 71 music videos. Jon, on his own, has released two studio albums, one live album, two compilations, and 16 singles.

The band currently has over 21 million monthly listeners on Spotify, while Jon, as a solo artist, has around 1.9 million. They’re also a prolific touring group. Their 2010 world tour grossed over $201.1 million -- half of which came from North America alone. Their 2017 “The House is Not for Sale” tour grossed $31 million. 

Trivia: In 2013, the group ended their deal with Mercury Records after signing to the label in 1983 and releasing 13 albums. They are currently signed to Island Records. 

How Much is Bon Jovi's Business Ventures Worth?

Jon is also an avid sports fan and has expressed interest in investing in various franchises. In 2004, he became a minority owner in the Philadelphia Soul, a team in the Arena Football League. Jon appeared in several commercials for the AFL alongside former Denver Broncos quarterback Jon Elway, co-owner of the AFL’s Colorado Crush. However, he has since sold his ownership stake in the team. 

In 2011, he pursued purchasing 15% of the Atlanta Falcons for $150 million but the NFL lockout occurred the following month, and Bon Jovi worried it would negatively impact the team's $1-billion valuation, so he backed out of the deal. 

Jon also released a rose wine called Diving into Hampton Water in 2018 with his son Jesse. He has admitted that his Jesse mostly runs the business, and he is more of a silent partner. Jesse worked on it as a side project with his college roommate Ali Franklin. The two then showed it to Jon, who was immediately impressed and introduced them to French winemaker Gerard Bertrand, who helped bring the project to life. It's since been very successful.

Trivia:  Jon almost purchased a stake in the Buffalo Bills in 2014 but was thwarted by Donald Trump. Trump was also interested in investing in the Bills, so he allegedly conspired with Republican operative Michael Caputo to start a grassroots campaign to turn the people of Buffalo against Bon Jovi. 

What Other Assets Does Bon Jovi Own?

Throughout his career Bon Jovi has accumulated a large portfolio of real estate. 

In 2020, Jon purchased a $43-million mansion in Palm Beach. He bought his previous Florida property for $10 million, before tearing it down and building a new mansion in its stead. He sold that property for $20 million. 

After purchasing the mansion in Palm Beach, he decided to liquidate some of his real estate portfolio.
