While fans are impatiently waiting for a heavily rumored tour announcement from Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, New Jersey’s second-most-iconic rock band Bon Jovi has confirmed 2022 dates starting in the Midwest in early April.

Jon Bon Jovi and his namesake crew will open their tour in Omaha, Nebraska, on April 1.

Tickets for all shows on the 15-city itinerary go on sale via on Jan. 14, with presale options beginning Tuesday. No vaccine or mask requirements are currently listed for the concerts, but a note on Xcel Center’s website for the St. Paul, Minnesota, show says that “the Event Organizer will continue to monitor local COVID-19 trends and meet or exceed protocols mandated by local governments.”


In 2018, Bon Jovi was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on the fan popularity vote. While original guitarist Richie Sambora reunited with the group for the ceremony, he is still not featured on their tours or albums anymore, including their last record, “2020.”
