EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Rock band Bon Jovi announced plans Thursday for a new world tour that will swing by the new home of the New York Giants and Jets.

The two-year tour begins Feb. 19 in Seattle and includes a May 26 show at New Jersey’s new $1.6 billion Meadowlands football stadium, which will be home to the New York Giants and Jets. It will feature 135 shows in 30 countries.
“It’s a big world,” lead singer Jon Bon Jovi said when asked about the length of the tour. “And we still make house calls.”
Bon Jovi and lead guitarist Richie Sambora are New Jersey natives. They said being selected for the first concert at the new stadium holds special meaning for them because they’ve played Giants Stadium more than eight times and consider it home.
The band announced the tour Thursday at an invitation-only performance for 5,000 fan club contest winners and construction workers in the parking lot of the new stadium.
A group of police officers watched the show from a highway overpass as the band worked through a set that included songs from its new album “The Circle” and hits like “You Give Love a Bad Name.”
The band’s “Lost Highway” album tour was the top grossing tour of 2008, according to Billboard Boxscore. It grossed $210.6 million and drew 2,157,675 fans.
