|Bon Jovi, Goos Suit Up For Woods' 'Tiger Jam'
Golf superstar Tiger Woods' sixth annual Tiger Jam benefit concert has snagged headliners Bon Jovi and the Goo Goo Dolls for the event, set for April 19 at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Events Center. This year's Tiger Jam, which will coincide with the end of the Bon Jovi/Goo Goo Dolls North American tour, will raise funds for the Tiger Woods Foundation and various children's charities based in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
"Tiger Jam has had outstanding talent every year, and we've continued that tradition with Bon Jovi," Woods said in a statement. "I grew up listening to Bon Jovi, and I'm really looking forward to seeing them live. It means a lot to me that Jon and the guys have joined in my efforts to support today's youth through Tiger Jam."
Bon Jovi will kick off its tour in February in support of its latest Island album, "Bounce," which debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 last October and has sold 441,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. The Goo Goo Dolls' latest, "Gutterflower" (Warner Bros.) debuted at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 in April 2002, and has sold 549,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
