What About Some More Bon Jovi Dates?

Bon Jovi’s 2013 global trek, dubbed “Because We Can – The Tour,” now includes a round of European dates. As Bon Jovi’s Facebook page proclaims, “new shows are being announced every day … because we can!” A pre-sale for select dates is ongoing now.

The tour goes along with a brand new album. Jon Bon Jovi and the gang are putting out their twelfth full-length studio effort, What About Now, in spring 2013.
