For the fourth consecutive time, global entertainment giant AEG Live announces they will be partnering with Bon Jovi to bring rock and roll delirium to a city or town near you as they deliver the goods on the band’s upcoming ‘Because We Can’ tour.
It seems like only yesterday that the World’s Hardest Working Rock N’ Roll Band landed the jet, parked the trailers and hung up the equipment fresh off their global domination in support of ‘The Circle’ tour.
Rabid fans of JoviNation have been fending off withdrawal symptoms by delving into the band’s extensive archive of fan-posted YouTube vids, as well as scratching and clawing for tickets to several of the one-off shows Jon or the band did, not to mention guitarist Richie Sambora’s abbreviated solo shows in support of his righteous new CD, ‘Aftermath Of The Lowdown’.
According to AEG Live, the band is keeping ticket prices affordable during tough economic times for fans the world over, with U.S. tour date packages available beginning at $19.50 (plus service charges).
“As AEG Live embarks on its fourth collaboration with one of today’s greatest original rock bands, it is no surprise that they are going to sell out stadiums and arenas around the globe, since Bon Jovi has consistently delivered the goods to their hardcore and new fans alike,” said Randy Phillips, President & CEO of AEG Live. “‘Because We Can – The Tour’ will again showcase Bon Jovi’s immense catalog of hits and some incredible new music from the forthcoming What About Now album and the signature state-of-the-art production that have become the hallmarks of Bon Jovi tours.”
In addition to performing their monster hits “Livin’ On A Prayer’, ‘You Give Love A Bad Name”, ‘Keep The Faith’, ‘Have A Nice Day’, ‘Its My Life’ and countless others, this tour will introduce JoviNation to the bands latest effort, ‘What About Now’, their new CD due for release in Spring, 2013.
In addition to U.S. and Canadian dates, this tour will also visit Latin America, Europe, the Far East, and Australia.
