Bon Jovi announces tour dates for North American leg of Because We Can tour, start out at low prices

By Gina DiFalco,

Bon Jovi has announced upcoming tour dates for their Because We Can tour, which launches Feb. 9.

Fans will be pleased to know that the tickets are affordable, starting at $19.50, which is a treat for a band that had the highest grossing worldwide tours in 2008 and 2010.

According to USA Today, frontman Jon Bon Jovi is a New Jersey native and active in the state’s affairs, recently lending a helping hand to victims of Hurricane Sandy.

With that said, the band will perform for two nights at Jersey’s MetLife Stadium.

Tickets for the first leg of this tour, which is in support of their new album What About Now, will go on sale on the band’s website on Nov. 30.

They start out at seven low price points -- $19.50, $29.50, $49.50, $59.50, $99.50, $125 and $185.

Promoter of the tour, Randy Phillips, who is president/CEO of AEG Live, says of the band’s front man "Jon is very savvy. He's using the highest 10% of the house to finance the rest of the house. It's almost similar to President Obama wanting to raise the upper tax rate. He's an artist who's fully in control of his own business and who understands the business. He told me he wanted to make sure there was something for everyone."

Phillips also said “He does not want to play in an arena full of rich people. Doing things like this is why this band still matters."
