, Staff

Bon Jovi will return to Massachusetts this summer as part of a worldwide tour in support of their forthcoming album, What About Now. The pride of New Jersey will play Gillette Stadium in Foxboro on Saturday, July 20. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $19.50 to $129.50, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

On the upcoming tour, Bon Jovi fans can expect a set packed with greatest hits, fan favorites and new songs from What About Now. The band’s twelfth studio effort and follow-up to 2009’s The Circle will hit stores on March 8. Produced by John Shanks, with whom the band has worked with on their last three albums, What About Now will be released in both a standard version and a deluxe version with bonus tracks. The band recently released the album’s lead single “Becuase We Can”, which hit the top five on iTunes in 24 countries and reached #1 in 12 countries. The video for the song is streaming below.

The July performance will mark Bon Jovi’s third at Gillette Stadium, following sold out shows at the venue in 2003 and 2010.

Bon Jovi was scheduled to kick off the “Because We Can” tour at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut last Saturday. Despite re-scheduling the show for October 25 due to the blizzard Nemo, the band delivered a free show for snowed-in fans, patrons and employees at the venue.
