Bon Jovi sets up more shows, ticket on-sales

As sold-out shows continue to stack up for Bon Jovi (tickets | music)'s forthcoming tour, the New Jersey rockers have loaded the schedule with a slew of new 2006 concerts.

Following the conclusion of the tour's previously announced first leg--which kicks off in early November and wraps up just before Christmas--Bon Jovi will take a few weeks off, and in mid-January will launch the tour's second leg, dates for which so far run into mid-March.
Tickets for most of the newly announced February and March concerts will hit the box office on Saturday (10/22), though previously scheduled on-sales for the tour's Florida stops--in the Ft. Lauderdale area and Tampa--have been pushed back from Saturday until Oct. 29 due to concerns about the approach of Hurricane Wilma, according to Bon Jovi's website. Also scheduled for a Saturday (10/22) on-sale are tickets to a recently added Dec. 7 show in Uniondale, NY.

Currently available on-sale dates as of press time are included in the itinerary below.

The upcoming tour, which is Bon Jovi's first since 2003, backs the group's latest album, "Have a Nice Day," which band members Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora co-produced with John Shanks (Kelly Clarkson, Hilary Duff). The set, which surfaced last month, debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 album chart.

Bon Jovi expects to remain on the road throughout 2006, and has already confirmed a run of European shows for next May and June. The European itinerary is posted on the band's official website.
