Bon Jovi Announce Return to Touring in April
New Jersey rockers Bon Jovi are set to hit the road this April for a month-long tour that takes the Grammy® Award winners on a 15-date all-arena tour. The band hit the go switch this year after shelving their 2020 tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic that brought concerts to a halt. Although the country is currently seeing record rising numbers of Omicron cases that have already cancelled shows this year, it appears the tour will go on despite the pandemic’s rage across the U.S. The “Bon Jovi 2022 Tour” will take the band through many mid-sized U.S. cities including Omaha, Charlotte, Savannah and Greenville, giving fans of the longtime rockers a chance to see them live.
“We have all missed touring and we know that nothing can replace the energy of a live show for the fans or the band,” said Jon Bon Jovi in the tour announcement.
The tour opens on April 1 in Omaha and takes the band straight through April, giving the band just a handful of days off, and will wrap up on April 30 in Nashville.
Bon Jovi was formed in 1983, and the current lineup includes original members frontman and lead singer Jon Bon Jovi, keyboardist David Bryan, and drummer Tico Torres along with guitarist Phil X and bassist Hugh McDonald. The band has released fifteen studio albums and sold more than 130 million albums while performing in more than 50 countries. Bon Jovi was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018. The band’s biggest hits include “Wanted Dead or Alive” (Slippery When Wet),” “Always” (Cross Road), “Born to Be My Baby” (New Jersey), “Bad Medicine” (New Jersey), “Livin’ On A Prayer” (Slippery When Wet), “I’ll Be There For You” (New Jersey), and “You Give Love a Bad Name” (Slippery When Wet).
Tickets for the tour are currently on sale.
