Destination Anywhere is Jon Bon Jovi's second solo album released June 17, 1997 and features music from the short film "Destination Anywhere" released in the same year. The album follows his successful 1990 soundtrack Blaze of Glory, from the film Young Guns II. The production is quite different from the classic rock norm that is a staple of past Bon Jovi albums, with drum loops, female backing vocals and Bon Jovi himself singing in a lower register in most of the tracks. Only one of his longtime bandmates, David Bryan, contributed to the album, though Desmond Child, co-writer of hits such as "Livin' on a Prayer", plays the tuba in the song "Ugly" and is also one of the producers.[2]


Chart Performance

The album charted at #31 on The Billboard 200, #6 on the Top Canadian albums chart[3] and #2 on the UK Albums Chart.[4]The first single "Midnight in Chelsea" was Bon Jovi's highest-charting solo single in the UK, reaching #4 on the UK Singles Chart. Also charting in the UK was the second single "Queen of New Orleans" at #10 and the third single "Janie, Don't Take Your Love to Town" at #13.[5] The last single "Ugly" charted in some European countries but not in the UK.


Destination Anywhere: The Film (also released in 1997) was produced and incorporated music and concepts from the album. The film stars Jon Bon Jovi and Demi Moore as a young couple struggling with alcoholism and the death of their young child. The film debuted on both MTV and VH1 in 1997 and also stars Kevin Bacon, Whoopi Goldberg and Annabella Sciorra. The film was released on DVD on April 11, 2005, and contains the film, Destination Anywhere, the EPK for the album, and four promotional videos for the four singles of the album. Also features a promotional video for the track "Staring at Your Window with a Suitcase in My Hand" and the track "It's Just Me" also features in full during the short film.
