|Bon Jovi Taking "Nice Day" On Tour
Bon Jovi will hit North American arenas this fall in support of its upcoming Island album, "Have a Nice Day." The tour will begin Nov. 2 in Des Moines, Iowa, and has dates on tap through Jan. 23 in Toronto. As previously reported, the group will also inaugurate New York's Nokia Theatre with a Monday (Sept. 19) show that will be simulcast on AOL and XM Satellite Radio.
Additional tour stops are planned for Dallas, Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Ore., Milwaukee, Nashville, Houston, San Jose, Calif., Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Las Vegas, but dates have yet to be announced.
"Have a Nice Day" arrives Tuesday as the first DualDisc from Island/Def Jam. It will include five live performances and the video for the title track. The song is No. 17 on Billboard's Adult Top 40 chart this week.
In an attempt to broaden Bon Jovi's usual listener base, Island/Def Jam sister label Mercury Nashville is planning to work album track "Who Says You Can't Go Home?" to country radio. The cut is a duet with Jennifer Nettles from country act Sugarland, which joined Bon Jovi for a recent episode of the CMT series "Crossroads."
