Bon Jovi’s 2013 World tour dates, setlist, What About Now

Bon Jovi have a talent for discovering the right formula that works for them, and they make use of that to their benefit. Ever since they dropped their record Crush in 2000, they have been keeping with the times by creating hard-hitting pop rock, and this is the formula they have been sticking to.

Now, the band is working on their twelfth album “What About Now” set for release in Spring 2013. The band will embark on a world tour of stadiums and arenas in 2013 with “Because We Can Tour” in support of their new album. The tour will kick off on February 10, 2013 at Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.  The tour setlist will include brand new songs from their new album “What About Now”.


Bon Jovi got their “Because We Can” world tour underway at Verizon Center last night (Feb 10). They have played a mixture of songs from their previous albums as well as new material from their upcoming  album “WhatAbout Now”, and the setlist was amongst the longest they've ever played.
