NEW YORK, Nov. 2 (UPI) -- New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi promises the shows on his band's "Have a Nice Day" tour will be well worth the ticket price.
"We like to give people value for their money, and we'll get a great support act, so one and one is three," Bon Jovi says. "I like to think that not only do we put out everything we have, but we spend money on it, that's for sure."
Bon Jovi begins the tour on Wednesday in Des Moines, Iowa. The group is slated to play 49 North American shows through early March, then begin a European tour in May. More North American dates are expected for the summer of 2006.
The tour is promoting Bon Jovi's latest album, also titled "Have a Nice Day." It debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard charts in September with sales of 201,881 -- the group's best first week ever.
