Rockers say music fans are being priced out of gig-going
Bon Jovi have announced full details of their cut-price tour.
Earlier this week, the rockers announced that they would be offering tickets costing just £12.50 to cash-strapped fans, to stop gig-goers being priced out of seeing live music.
“The band insisted on ticket prices for the Because We Can Tour that enabled all to attend,” says the band’s UK tour promoter Rob Hallett.
He added: “Ordinary fans have been priced out of live music in recent years and we hope this goes some way toward redressing the balance. After all, rock’n’roll always was and always should be the music of the people. And that means everyone.”
The rockers are set to tour the world in 2013 as part of their ‘Because We Can’ tour, which will showcase tracks from their forthcoming new album ‘What About Now’, which is due in Spring 2013.
Bon Jovi will play:
Manchester Etihad Stadium (June 8)
Birmingham Villa Park (9)
Cardiff City Stadium (12)
Sunderland Stadium Of Light (13)
Glasgow Hampden Park (July 3)
Tickets go onsale on Thursday (November 1) and will be priced between £12.50 up to £125 (plus booking fees). To check the availability of Bon Jovi tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
