Bon Jovi, Greatest Hits

Story by Jack Foley

BON Jovi have announced details of a UK stadium tour for 2019 – including a show at London’s Wembley Stadium.

The rock giants will kick off their first UK tour in six years with a massive Anfield show on June 19, before heading to Wembley Stadium on June 21.

The tour will then conclude with a final stop off at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on June 23.

The band will be joined by special guests Manic Street Preachers.

Tickets will go on sale from 9am on Friday, November 2.

Frontman Jon Bon Jovi commented: “Those huge shows, tens of thousands of people all together as one, that’s what we do. And we’ve got a few things to put right by playing Wembley Stadium.

“We were so excited to be the first band to play that new Stadium, I would have helped build it myself to make it happen. So we have a new history to write there. We’ve had some great nights at the Ricoh too.

“Throw in Anfield as a new venue – OK that’s just us showing off! We’re honoured to play there and the first thing I’m doing is getting that iconic picture under the This Is Anfield’ sign.”

The band now features Bon Jovi originals David Bryan and Tico Torres alongside Jon, plus long time bassist Hugh McDonald, co-producer and co-songwriter John Shanks, multi-instrumentalist Everett Bradley and lead guitarist Phil X, who joined the band on that 2013 tour.

The tour dates are (all June 2019)

19 – Anfield Liverpool
21 – Wembley Stadium
23 – Ricoh Arena Coventry
