One of the planet’s biggest rock bands, Bon Jovi have announced their return to the UK, continuing a triumphant world tour that has visited the USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina and Chile and will hit Japan and Australia later in 2018. A huge year of 80 shows and counting has also seen them inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Their This House Is Not For Sale European Tour is set to be another blockbuster. Tickets go on sale on 02 November at 9am at LiveNation.co.uk.
Bon Jovi will finish what they started by returning to Wembley Stadium in London, 19 years after they were the last band to play the old Wembley and 13 years since they almost became the first to play the new stadium – until overrunning building works put a stop to that.
Elsewhere in the UK, They will become among the first bands to play Liverpool’s legendary Anfield Stadium since 2008 in a city they last played during their seminal Slippery When Wet tour at the Royal Court Theatre in 1986.
They will end the tour at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena, where the band performed in 2006 and 2008 to acclaim.
“Those huge shows, tens of thousands of people all together as one, that’s what we do,” says Jon Bon Jovi, “And we’ve got a few things to put right by playing Wembley Stadium. We were so excited to be the first band to play that new Stadium, I would have helped build it myself to make it happen. So we have a new history to write there. We’ve had some great nights at the Ricoh too.
“Throw in Anfield as a new venue – OK that’s just us showing off! We’re honoured to play there and the first thing I’m doing is getting that iconic picture under the “This Is Anfield” sign.”
Support on all dates will be Manic St.Preachers.
