Bon Jovi teams with Notre Dame for limited edition album design

University of Notre Dame

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- The University of Notre Dame and rock band Bon Jovi have announced a unique partnership that has produced 2,500 copies of a special edition vinyl of the band’s newest album that will have "Fighting Irish-inspired design elements," the university said.

“I have been a longtime fan of Notre Dame and have many incredible memories on campus supporting the Fighting Irish with our family,” Jon Bon Jovi said. “This was a great opportunity to create an exclusive limited edition Notre Dame themed version of our new album and I am excited to share it with you.”

Notre Dame is the only collegiate property partnering with Bon Jovi for their album released which is scheduled to be released June 7, with the Fighting Irish-themed vinyl available exclusively at the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore.

"[The band's new album] 'Forever' is a celebratory album that takes stock of the past and likes what it sees, while keeping one eye on the future. But it’s also a defiant record, the most compelling evidence yet that Bon Jovi — inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018, with more than 130 million records sold and dozens of unassailable radio hits to his credit — has nothing left to prove," officials said.

The special edition two LP vinyl release will cost $37.99 and features twelve tracks on double disc colored vinyl.

The Notre Dame special edition album package includes:

  • Notre Dame gold and blue splattered vinyl records.
  • Exclusive poster of the band members with a Notre Dame color presentation.
  • The Notre Dame Monogram featured on the included poster.
  • The Notre Dame Monogram on all four record labels.
  • A co-branded Notre Dame sticker on the front cover of the album wrapper.
