Speaking of the announcement Lord Henry Mountcharles today said: “I have seen Bon Jovi live and was deeply impressed. They are one of the most successful touring acts in rock and roll history. Over the years I have been bombarded with requests for them to play Slane. Last week one from America read “Bon Jovi at Slane?! Could my dreams have come true! “Now I am thrilled to say those dreams are a reality.” Blazing a trail across the globe, the tour will kick off in North America in February, just in time for Valentine’s Day, and travel throughout Europe, the Far East, Africa, Latin America and Australia. The band’s return to the road in 2013 will cap an incredible run which has secured Bon Jovi’s status as the essential live rock band – having performed more than 2,700 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 35 million fans, and earning the #1 grossing worldwide tour twice in just three years. “Because We Can – The Tour” will also debut brand new songs from new album What About Now, due out in Spring 2013, loading even more ammunition into the band’s huge arsenal of hits including “Livin’ on a Prayer,” “You Give Love a Bad Name,” “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” “It’s My Life,” and many more.
