|Bon Jovi Extends $83 Million Tour Into Europe In 2019
Jon Bon Jovi has just extended his latest tour, which has already made more than $83 million. His money-making machine will head to Europe as Bon Jovi again aims to be one of the biggest concert earners after 35 years in music.
The $83 million tour, in support of the album This House Is Not For Sale, has already crossed North and South America and Asia. Shows are coming up in Japan and Australia in November and December. The 18 further dates now announced start in Russia in May 2019 and run through the U.K., Germany, Spain, Switzerland and Austria, ending in Romania in July.
Jon Bon Jovi himself, who is now 56, has appeared on the Forbes list of America’s Wealthiest Celebrities, ranking No. 16 with a $410 million net worth in 2017. Bon Jovi the band came in at 80th on the Forbes Celebrity 100 in 2017, with some $35.5 million earnings made from 34 shows in the scoring period. The gigs now added may well exceed that average because they include some of Europe’s biggest venues such as Wembley Stadium in London, which has a capacity of almost 100,000 people. Bon Jovi was the last band to play the old Wembley 19 years ago and it was due to be the first to play the new stadium - until overrunning building works put a stop to that. The Wembley show in June is sandwiched between dates at Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium and the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, with all British shows supported by the Manic Street Preachers.
