Bon Jovi continue to add new dates to their forthcoming 2013 world tour, dubbed, fittingly, “Because We Can – The Tour.” The rapidly expanding trek is set to coincide with the spring 2013 release of the band’s latest album, What About Now. I
n addition, the veteran rockers have announced that ticket prices for their U.K. shows will start at a fan-friendly 12.50 pounds (roughly the equivalent of twenty U.S. dollars). Rob Hallett, Bon Jovi’s U.K. tour promoter, told London’s The Mirror, “The band insisted on ticket prices for the Because We Can Tour that enabled all to attend. Ordinary fans have been priced out of live music in recent years and we hope this goes some way toward redressing the balance. After all, rock and roll always was and always should be the music of the people. And that means everyone."
U.K. Dates are as follows:
June 8, 2013 - Manchester, UK - Etihad Stadium
June 9, 2013 - Birmingham, UK - Villa Park
June 12, 2013 - Cardiff, UK - City Stadium
June 13, 2013 - Sunderland, UK - Stadium of Light
July 3, 2013 - Glasgow, UK - Hampden Park
