Legendary rock band Bon Jovi is about to embark on a North American tour this spring.
Although the group, fronted by lead singer and guitar player Jon Bon Jovi, won’t be stopping in Columbia for a performance at Colonial Life Arena, fans from the Midlands won’t have to go far to see them.
Without actually performing in South Carolina, Bon Jovi has scheduled three concerts on the “This House Is Not For Sale” tour in nearby Southeast venues.
The Grammy-winning band has scheduled tour stops in Charlotte, Raleigh and Atlanta in April, which is the second leg of the 2017 performances.
On April 20, they will perform at Philips Arena in Atlanta.
The following night, Bon Jovi is scheduled to make its closest appearance to Columbia, as they will play at Charlotte’s Spectrum Center on April 21.
That will be followed by an April 24 concert at PNC Arena in Raleigh.
Those performances will be among the first after Bon Jovi is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. That event is scheduled to take place on April 14.
Tickets will go on sale on Jan. 19, but for those eligible for pre-sale events, tickets will be made available next Tuesday.
The This House Is Not for Sale Tour was Bon Jovi’s first outing since the 2013. The tour will kickoff in Denver on March 14.
Bon Jovi is best known for hits “You Give Love a Bad Name,” “Livin’ on a Prayer,” “Wanted Dead Or Alive,” and “It’s My Life” among others.
