Yeah, haven't you heard? Bonjovi.com sent out this email yesterday:
Hey Bon Jovi Fan!
Bon Jovi’s 2010 tour has been a record breaking success for all involved, and we want to thank YOU, the fans, for making this year so successful - and fun! - for us so far. As Jon says on stage each and every night, we couldn’t have done this for 25 years, and continue to do it, without you and your support, so thank you!
To show our gratitude to the best fans in the world, for the next six weeks we'll be taking you with us on a journey to explore how Bon Jovi grew to be such legendary rockers, focusing on two albums per week and including rare photos, discounts on era-specific merchandise, new live videos every Monday and audio from Obie every Tuesday. We are also proud to announce an exciting new feature coming to BonJovi.com just for YOU this August and September - Bon Jovi Wednesday Movie Nights!
We'll be starting today, August 2nd, with Bon Jovi's first two albums: Bon Jovi and 7800 Degrees Fahrenheit. During the week we'll post an exclusive music video, unveil rare photographs, give you discounts on era-specific merch, and to top it all off, we'll be streaming the "Bon Jovi Live From London DVD" on Wednesday, August 4th at 7:00 p.m. EDT.
Visit BonJovi.com to learn more and get started - and to get your hands on discounted merch while it lasts! You can also grab our Bon Jovi widget and add it to your personal blog, fan site, or favorite social network now!

I think it's pretty cool. A little random, maybe, but a fun idea to engage the Bon Jovi community and keep us occupied during the band's vacation break. Although I feel a little like I'm in the middle of Spirit Week at my university...LOL.
So the video of "Raise Your Hands" (live at the 02 Dome) is posted on the videos page over at bonjovi.com right now: http://www.bonjovi.com/videos. Not sure why it's not a video from the actual era, but okay.
