Bon Jovi's new North American tour is titled "Because We Can," which either is a broad statement of positivity amidst rough economic times -- or it's just crassly saying "We're friggin Bon Jovi and we're still huge enough to overwhelm your local arena, so we will." In either case, it's a done deal. They're coming for us for the first time in two years.

The enormous AEG-promoted tour begins February 9, and snakes through the U.S. and Canada until late July. New material from a forthcoming album called What About Now will dot through the shows that should split the difference between hair metal riffage and Springsteen-level sincerity. Why? Because they can.

The big deal here is that some folks will get to see Bon Jovi for less than they'd pay for a Grizzly Bear show across town. At each stop, 1,000 tickets will be priced at $19.50 before service fees. These may not be the best seats in the house, but they'll get you in the building with Jon and co.

Tickets begin rolling out on sale November 30. More info at AEG Live here.
