Must Read

Nearly two years after undergoing major surgery to reconstruct a vocal cord injury, Jon Bon Jovi‘s impending return to the stage is still unknown. 

The Bon Jovi frontman spoke with Boston’s Mix 104.1 radio station last week to discuss the band’s upcoming album and gave fans an update on his health. 

“I don’t know about a tour,” Bon Jovi said. “It is my desire to do a tour next year, but I’m just still recovering from a major surgery.”

During Hulu’s panel for the new docuseries “Thank You, Good Night: The Bon Jovi Story” at the Television Critics Association last month, the singer opened up about his surgery and revealed one of his vocal cords was “atrophying” at the time, according to People.

“So the strong one was pushing the weak one aside, and I wasn’t singing well,” said Bon Jovi, who described one vocal cord being “thick as the thumb” and the other being “thick as a pinky.” He added, “My craft was being taken from me.”

“But nonetheless, and I say in the film, and in the latter episodes, if I just had my tools back, the rest of it I can deal with,” he said. “I can write you a song, I can perform as well as anybody. But I need to get my tools back.”

“Saturday morning is the first time I woke up without multiple voices in my head,” he said during the TCA panel, referencing his vocal cord recovery. “It was just me. And that was the best feeling. It was just me.”

On Feb. 2, Bon Jovi performed live for the first time post-surgery at his MusiCares Person of the Year honor and tribute concert. 

“I’m obviously humbled just to be here and most proud of our being here 40 years on… still about to release our 18th album,” he told Fox News Digital at the event. “We’re very excited about that. The documentary, everything to celebrate this 40th.”
