Bon Jovi have offered cut-price tickets to cash-strapped fans.

The rockers are set to tour the world in 2013 as part of their 'Because We Can' tour, which will showcase tracks from the band's forthcoming new album 'What About Now', which is due in Spring 2013.

However, if fans thought they may have to cough up the £95 to £375 it cost to go and see The Rolling Stones for their two 50th anniversary dates at London's O2 Arena, the band's UK tour promoter has said the ticket price will me much more reasonable.

Speaking to The Mirror, Bon Jovi’s UK tour promoter Rob Hallett said: "I was delighted when they came to me insisting on ticket prices for the Because We Can Tour next year that enabled all to attend."

He added: "If we are to survive as an industry we need to move away from the elitist image of high prices and even higher secondary prices. After all rock and roll always was and always should be the music of the people and that means everyone."

A source from the band also told the paper: "We are in the middle of a ­recession and that’s why the band think £12.50 is perfect."
