Bon Jovi announce UK stadium tour

The band hit the road in June and July.
Great deals on musical instruments
Bon Jovi have announced a major UK stadium tour scheduled for June and July next year.

The US rockers will kick off their stretch across the country at Manchester's Etihad Stadium on June 8th 2013 before hitting Birmingham's Villa Park (9th), Cardiff City Stadium (12th), Sunderland's Stadium of Light (13th), finishing at Glasgow's Hampden Park on July 3rd.

There is a twist with the Because We Can Tour, as fans get to see the iconic rock band for just £12.50, with the group keen to recognise the global recession and make going to see a major artist affordable once again.

Rob Hallett, Bon Jovi's UK tour promoter, said: "If we are to survive as an industry, we need to move away from the elitist image of high prices and even higher secondary prices. After all rock and roll always was and always should be the music of the people and that means everyone."

The move comes after fans of The Rolling Stones were staggered when prices for their 50th anniversary show at London's O2 Arena ranged from £95 to a massive £325, with Bon Jovi looking to be affordable for everyone.
