There’s good news for those who missed out on Bon Jovi’s “Because We Can” tour this earlier year. The rockers announced last week that they will add a fall leg to their immensely popular 2013 tour. The 12 new dates begin in October and will follow 6 stadium shows and 2 hometown New Jersey shows this summer.
The additional dates likely come in response to the financial success of the first leg of the tour. In the current edition of Billboard Boxscore, Bon Jovi has 19 of the top 25 highest grossing shows listed. The first leg was well received despite the absence of guitarist Richie Sambora due to “personal reasons”. Amid rumors of drug abuse and discontent with Jon Bon Jovi, it is unclear if Sambora will return to the tour.
Despite the ambiguity surrounding Sambora’s presesnce, those who purchase tickets can definitely expect to see Bon Jovi arrive on time. Jon Bon Jovi recently ripped Justin Bieber in the British press for arriving two hours late to his London concert in March. Said Bon Jovi, “It’s really not cool, you’re an a**hole. Go to f***in’ work!” Check out a full list of the summer and fall shows below. Tickets for the fall will be released to the public this Saturday, June 8.
