Bon Jovi sack manager

By | Published on Tuesday 22 June 2010

Bon Jovi have parted ways with their manager Jack Rovner, though Jon Bon Jovi has been quick to deny any bad blood exists between Rovner and the band.

It had been rumoured that Bon Jovi were upset with Rovner over a number of issues, not least an incident when fans who had paid $1000 for VIP tickets on the band’s recent US tour were refused a promised meet-and-greet session, and an “artist in residence” deal with NBC, which stopped the band from promoting their latest album, ‘The Circle’, on any other US TV stations.

But in an email to the New York Post’s Page Six gossip column, Jon Bon Jovi wrote: “The boring truth is we decided to go in different directions and thanked both Jack and his team for a great job. He is and will remain a close friend and someone who I will be very grateful to for his dedication”.

A spokeswoman for Rovner’s Vector Management company added: “Jack and everyone at Vector are very proud of the work they did together [with Bon Jovi] over the last five years, including their first Grammy Awards [performance in January this year], first number one chart debuts globally, and even a number one on the country charts”.
