|Bon Jovi Announce Tour Dates
Bon Jovi took advantage of their appearance on American Idol on Wednesday, May 2nd, to let people know what the band's tour plans are. Frontman Jon said the group will hit the road in earnest starting in January, but before that happens, they plan to do 10 nights at their "local New Jersey Arena," which is the Prudential Center in Newark. According to the Associated Press, the band's run at the new venue will begin October 26th, with tickets going on sale in mid-June.
