Jon Bon Jovi - After Rough Week, Bon Jovi Announces 2013 North American Tour

Jon Bon Jovi broke his silence on his daughter Stephanie's drug overdose and subsequent arrest this week, saying his family are "doing well" after the tragedy. As you'll know by now, the 19-year-old was unresponsive when paramedics arrived at her Hamilton College dorm room last week, though she luckily recovered in hospital.

Stephanie was arrested after a small amount of heroin and marijuana was found in her room, though the charges were dropped thanks to a governmental scheme encouraging people to call for help if they suspect someone is overdosing. Of the scary incident, Bon Jovi told Fox, "What I do for a living seems glitzy and glamorous but if you don't take it too seriously it's a great way to make a living. And then life goes on. Things happen." Anyway, Stephanie seems to have made a full recovery, allowing Bon Jovi to concentrate on his day job. The band will be heading out on another of its globe-spanning arena tours, announcing the first dates this week. The Because We Can tour will kick off in Uncasville, Connecticut on February 9, 2012, and run through till late July with stops at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey and the Staples Center on April 19, 2012. Randy Phillips, President and CEO of AEG Live said, "As AEG Live embarks on its fourth collaboration with one of today's greatest original rock bands, it is no surprise that they are going to sell out stadiums and arenas around the globe, since Bon Jovi has consistently delivered the goods to their hardcore and new fans alike."

As if to stick two massive fingers up at the Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi make it clear on their website that a "wide range of ticket options" will be available, starting at a mere $19.50.
