Bon Jovi’s “Because We Can – The Tour” expands once again as the band adds North America to its 2013 summer and fall plans. Sure there are arenas on the routing, but Jon Bon Jovi & Co. will also play stadiums in Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Foxboro and E. Rutherford.
Touring in support of What About Now, Bon Jovi launched its global outing in February. The summer leg includes second stops in some market, while others will host the band for the first time this year.
For this romp through the U.S. and Canada, Bon Jovi says the stadium shows will be special by featuring “a different state-of-the-art stage production, emulating a larger-than-life classic 1959 Buick Electra.” The stadium portion of the itinerary includes the “Fan Kickoff Concert” at Cleveland’s First Energy Stadium where the band will help the Cleveland Browns launch the upcoming football season.
