Bon Jovi To Play Slippery When Wet Complete On Tour
February 7, 2010
Paul Cashmere of Undercover.com.au reports: Bon Jovi will perform their classic ‘Slippery When Wet’ album in its entirety at some stages during their upcoming world tour.
In a media hook-up this week, guitarist Richie Sambora said that complete album performances are being planned as part of the tour.
“We’re doing like 15 nights at the O2 in London we’re going to be a lot of different stuff,” he said. “I think, you know, there’ll even be stuff like we might do Slippery When Wet in it’s entirety or Lost Highway in it’s entirety, you know, stuff like that”.
“I’m sure that we’ll do The Circle in it’s entirety a few times on this tour because we’re really, really proud of this record and proud of the evolution that happened with this record for us as far as musically and song writing and all that stuff”.
This next Bon Jovi tour will feature 135 shows across 30 countries.
Richie is conscious that Bon Jovi has inherited a whole new generation of fans through computer games. “I mean there’s kids that are just discovering us now through like Rock Band and Guitar Hero, and stuff like that. Which is very interesting, the way they’re breaking music now a days. So there’s that generation of listener”.
The Circle tour for Bon Jovi will start on February 11 in Honolulu. European dates commence June 4 in Madrid then a second North American leg will start July 14 in Canada.
