Bon Jovi Has Already Grossed $30 Million This Year

Looks like there’s one part of the music business that Steve Jobs hasn’t yet destroyed.

According to estimates from Billboard this week, Bon Jovi has grossed another $30 million from touring in 2011 alone.

In fact, the figure comes after a tour restart in early February, and follows nearly $150 million in receipts for 2010 in North America alone (according to Pollstar).

The development closely follows Jon Bon Jovi’s sharp attack against Steve Jobs.  Earlier this month, Bon Jovi accused Jobs of being “personally responsible for destroying the music business,” a statement that was quickly ripped apart by the music industry.
