One of the most influential rock bands of all time, Bon Jovi, is back on the road. It’s been two years since the band last toured, and now it’s getting back to business with a new tour and album. The new tour starts April 2 in Omaha, NE.
Bon Jovi is an American rock band that formed in 1983 in Sayreville, NJ. Since then, the group has sold over 100 million albums worldwide, and remains one of the best-selling music acts of all time. They are also members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their hits include “You Give Love a Bad Name,” “Livin’ on a Prayer,” and “New Jersey.”
The band began playing in earnest after the outbreak of the omicron surge in the 1980s, and they’ve been on the road ever since. Last year, the group announced the “2022” tour in support of their upcoming album. But the tour is not going to include major cities, such as Los Angeles or New York, and it will focus on smaller venues and towns throughout the Midwest and south.
Bon Jovi’s new tour is in the works, and Jon Bon Jovi is excited to get back on the road. After a long break, he said touring feels different. He’s going to be performing songs from all his career, including a couple that haven’t been performed in more than a decade.
A major part of the 2022 tour will be in the South and the Midwest. For the first time, the band will play 15 shows in the region. These performances will take place starting in April, and they’ll end in Nashville on April 30.
In addition to the new tour, Bon Jovi is reviving the Opening Act Contest. This contest gives local bands the chance to open for the group in each city. During the first leg of the tour, Jon and the rest of the band will play a mix of classic hits and new tracks from the band’s “Twenty22” album.
Jon Bon Jovi’s stage presence and energetic show helped make the concert a success. His stage presence was enhanced by a stage backdrop of metal towers with attached lights. Other elements of the show included acoustic and electric songs. Several songs from the 2020 album were played, including “Limitless” and “The Radio Saved My Life Tonight.”
Jon Bon Jovi performed all of his hits, including songs like “Livin’ on a Prayer,” “New Jersey,” “Just Older,” and “You Give Love a Bad Name.” The band also played some deeper cuts from their newest album. And for the first time in a decade, the band played the song, “The Radio Saved My Life Tonight.”
While the Bon Jovi 2022 tour will not include major cities, it will be the band’s first full-scale tour during the pandemic era. Many of the songs on the album are about racial justice and the pandemic.
Fans will have a chance to see the band at a variety of venues, from arenas to festivals. They’ll have access to exclusive hospitality lounges, as well as private exits.
