As Bon Jovi rocks October to launch This House Is Not for Sale, the title track is already inside the Top Ten of the AC Radio Chart – it is Bon Jovi ’s highest debut on that chart to date. Appearances/features are set with The Ellen DeGeneres Show (airing today), ABC’s Good Morning America, Nightline, Charlie Rose, Howard Stern, People and Billboard Magazine.

Live Nation will then choose 10 finalists, and from those the 'It's My Life' rockers will then pick six winners, one for each block of dates, averaging at each winner playing around five shows.

According to the website: "Those chosen will demonstrate that they have the sound, style, and substance to open an arena show."
