Keanu Reeves Reminisces About Dogstar’s Sparse Audience During Bon Jovi Performance

Keanu Reeves recently reflected on a past performance where his band, Dogstar, opened for Bon Jovi. In the latest episode of the Inside of You podcast, the bassist discussed the 1995 show, revealing that almost no one showed up except for a few individuals. In a recently shared snippet on the podcast’s social media accounts, Reeves recounted:

“Well, when you open for Jon Bon Jovi and you’re Dogstar, and you go on when it’s still light out in the afternoon. It’s just you and a handful of people in the sunshine, with some vendors walking around. So, you know, it’s kind of chill.”

Dogstar Also Took the Stage Before Bowie

In that same year, Dogstar maintained a busy schedule. Wrapping up 1995, the band had the opportunity to open for David Bowie in Los Angeles. Interestingly, the Dogstar experience echoed that of the Bon Jovi show. In the concluding segment of the podcast, drummer Robert Mailhouse shared how their name wasn’t announced as the opening act, leaving the audience unaware of the performing band. Reeves also characterized the moment as ‘real horror.’

Dogstar Took a 20-Year Hiatus

Established in the mid-1990s, Dogstar initially launched two albums: ‘Our Little Visionary’ in 1996 and ‘Happy Ending’ in 2000, before disbanding in 2002. The members pursued individual paths until their reunion this year. They provided early hints of a comeback in early May through Instagram videos featuring their studio sessions.

Dogstar later solidified their return with an official announcement, unveiling upcoming tour dates. Following the announcement of their comeback, the band reunited for a 12-song performance at the BottleRock Festival in Napa Valley.
