|Bon Jovi Plans Full Album Shows On 'Circle' World Tour
Bon Jovi is planning to dig deep into its catalog and maybe even play some albums in their entirety for the group's upcoming Circle World Tour, which kicks off Feb. 11 in Honolulu.
With an itinerary of 135 shows in 30 countries until August of 2001, guitarist Richie Sambora told Billboard.com during a conference call with reporters that "to keep ourselves interested and happy we're going to be picking songs from different records and kind of intersect them into the set as time goes on...We try to give the crowd the songs they want to hear, obviously. That's very important 'cause the fans came to hear those songs. We love to play them, so it's not a big deal. But we're gonna go back and play stuff that we haven't played in 20 years...stuff off the first album, stuff off the second album that we haven't played in God knows how long. So it's gonna be a lot of fun."
The guitarist added that Bon Jovi will particularly take advantage of multi-night stands at the new Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. (five) and the O2 Arena in London (15) to stage a few special events. "We might do 'Slippery When Wet' in its entirety, or 'Lost Highway' in its entirety," he said. "I'm sure we'll do 'The Circle' in its entirety a few times on this tour, 'cause we're really proud of this record. We're going to be doing a lot of different stuff."
Three Meadowlands shows are currently announced; two more will be put on sale in the near future, Sambora said, with Kid Rock slated to open both.
