Following a groundbreaking performance and tour announcement at the site of New Jersey's New Meadowlands Stadium last week, Bon Jovi has just added a third date on Saturday, May 29, 2010, to the band's series of inaugural concerts at the soon-to-be-opened venue.
The newly added concert, along with the previously announced New Meadowlands Stadium shows on May 26-27, are part of Bon Jovi's "The Circle 2010-2011 World Tour," promoted by AEG Live. The tour launches Feb. 19 in Seattle and will feature 135 shows in 30 countries throughout much of the next two years.
Tickets for all three New Meadowlands Stadium shows go on sale on Saturday, Oct. 31, at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at all Ticketmaster locations, via Ticketmaster charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000, Ticketmaster Express at 866-448-7849 (automated only self service line) or online at Ticketmaster.com. Tickets are subject to applicable service charges and event time and date are subject to change. Log on to www.bonjovi.com for the most up-to-date concert and ticket on-sale information.
On Oct. 22, with the grounds of New Meadowlands Stadium as their backdrop, the band's Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, David Bryan and Tico Torres announced their two-year global trek with an exclusive performance for a group of more than 5,000 lucky contest winners, fan club members and on-site construction workers currently building the venue.
Following in the footsteps of their hugely successful "Lost Highway Tour" — Billboard's top-grossing tour of 2008 — Bon Jovi will draw fans around the world into The Circle, with a residency at London's O2 Arena in June 2010, before returning to America in the fall for an additional nationwide leg and further dates well into 2011.
The Nov. 10 release of the Grammy Award-winning band's new album, "The Circle," and subsequent world tour provide a powerful reassertion of Bon Jovi's commitment to the hard-hitting rock & roll that has been the band's indelible signature since it began more than 26 years ago.
