Bon Jovi to perform in Mexico City in September

Mexico City, May 28 (EFE).- The U.S. rock group Bon Jovi will perform Sept. 10 at Mexico City's Foro Sol, a venue that holds almost 60,000 people, organizers said.

The band, led by vocalist Jon Bon Jovi, will give its recital as part of its current world tour dubbed "Because We Can-The Tour," Ocesa Entertainment, a company that has staged big concerts in Mexico, said in a statement.

This will be the group's second concert at Foro Sol after appearing there in 2010.

The New Jersey quartet has shown itself to be one of the bands that offers "the best live rock shows this year," Oceso Entertainment said.

Bon Jovi has racked up more than 2,700 concerts in over 50 countries before more than 35 million fans throughout his career.

As part of "Because We Can-The Tour," Bon Jovi will perform songs from his new album "What About Now," which adds yet more titles to his imposing repertoire of hits, including "Livin' on a Prayer," "You Give Love a Bad Name," "Who Says You Can't Go Home," "It's My Life" and many more.

It is estimated that during his musical career he has sold more than 130 million copies of his discs.

Advance ticket sales for Mexico will be next June 3-4, with direct sales starting on June 5 through Ticketmaster and the Foro Sol box offices.
