Bon Jovi got intimate with fans in New York on Monday night (19SEP05) when they launched their ninth studio album, HAVE A NICE DAY, at the opening of new venue the Nokia Theater Times Square.

The New Jersey rockers performed to just 2,100 people at the sold-out show, but the multimedia concert was also broadcast live on American Online (AOL), XM Satellite Radio and more than 100 movie screens across America.

Frontman Jon Bon Jovi joked that the group is getting used to smaller shows.

He quipped, "This is probably the smallest thing we did since dinner last night at my place."
