Bon Jovi Rep Dismisses Forbes Complaint Reports
The list, which was compiled based on musicians' earnings, is said to have been disputed by reps for Bon Jovi following the band's omission.
A rep for Forbes is said to have confirmed the complaint to New York Post gossip column Page Six, telling the publication, "Forbes estimated each act's earnings between June 2009 and June 2010 and included revenue streams such as concert dates, merchandise sales, licensing fees, music sales, and publishing royalties. Bon Jovi didn't tour for eight of those months."
But a spokesperson for Bon Jovi is adamant no one in their camp complained to Forbes, adding, "That's ridiculous. Last year, the band took an eight-month break from touring, so there was no expectation that they would rank on this year's list.
"Next year, different story - their current tour is No. 1 in North America right now and No. 2 worldwide."
