Bon Jovi fans better mark their calendars now for the new Bon Jovi tour dates closest to you coming in 2017! All dedicated fans are super excited to get the chance to see their favorite band live once again, it has been three long years since the rockers last toured.

The band's last tour in 2013 was exceptionally difficult for Jon and the guys after the abrupt decision was made mid-tour by former lead guitarist Richie Sambora to leave the band. Frontman and band leader JBJ sat down with Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday, October 5th announcing live that the band had made the decision to head back out on the road promoting the release of their new album, "This House Is Not For Sale."

Jon revealed to Ellen that the four small concert dates in which the band played the new album in its entirety were so well received that the band agreed that they were all ready to get back out on the road.

So far, Bon Jovi has announced 20 concert dates for their "This House Is Not For Sale" tour. The tour will kick off on February 8th, 2017 in Greenville, South Carolina and will wrap up the first leg six weeks later in Indianapolis, Indiana. From there Jon Bon Jovi, David, and Tico will decide if and where they will proceed from there.

The new album "THINFS" was originally scheduled for release on October 21st but has since been pushed back to a November 4th release date. This is the first album without former band member Richie Sambora.

As for Richie, he recently ended his current tour in Australia, which according to reports did not go so well for him. It was described by some fans as an up and down performance (mostly down), leaving fans disappointed.
