Bon Jovi to be the First Band to Play New Meadowlands Stadium

East Rutherford, NJ October 22, 2009 With New Jerseys New Meadowlands Stadium as their backdrop, GRAMMY Award-winning hometown heroes Bon Jovi performed at a concert and media event today that announced The Circle World Tour. The band is preparing to spend nearly two years spanning the globe, including the kickoff event of New Meadowlands Stadium, scheduled for May 26th and 27th, 2010.

The New Meadowlands concerts will go on sale beginning at 10am on Saturday, October 31st, while additional tour dates go on sale November 9th and 16th. Fans should continue to log on to for the most up to date concert and ticket on-sale information.

The bands Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, David Bryan and Tico Torres performed an exclusive set for a select group of 5,000 lucky contest winners, fan club members, and on-site construction workers currently at work building the New Meadowlands Stadium. Bon Jovi was also joined by New York Jets Chairman & CEO Woody Johnson, New York Giants President & CEO, John Mara, as well as President & CEO of the New Meadowlands Stadium Company, Mark Lamping. New Yorks powerhouse radio station WPLJ DJ, Race Taylor, served as emcee. Live footage of the event is available at

Beginning with the bands North American tour launch on February 19th, 2010 in Seattle, WA, Bon Jovi will spend much of the next two years on the road, performing 135 shows in 30 countries. Following in the footsteps of their hugely successful Lost Highway Tour, Bon Jovi will draw fans around the world into The Circle, with a residency at Londons O2 Arena in June 2010 before returning to America in the fall for an additional nationwide leg, and further dates well into 2011.

“It is often said that the third time is a charm, and in the case of the Bon Jovi/AEG Live relationship, this axiom certainly holds, said Randy Phillips, President and CEO of AEG Live. AEG Live has been honored to serve as the band’s worldwide tour promoters, from the 2005 ‘Have A Nice Day’ tour to the highest grossing tour of 2008, ‘Lost Highway,’ to the upcoming ‘The Circle World Tour’ in 2010. Bon Jovi is one of the most prolific and exciting live rock bands in the world.”

Having sold more than 120 million albums and performed more than 2,600 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 34 million fans, Bon Jovi is at their best when theyre on the move, and thats truer now than ever before. The November 10th, 2009 release of Bon Jovis new album, The Circle, and the bands subsequent world tour, provides a powerful reassertion of Bon Jovis commitment to the hard-hitting rock & roll that has been the bands indelible signature since it began more than 26 years ago.
