WPLJ secret show + The Circle North American tour dates

Confirmed: Bon Jovi will open Meadowlands Stadium (the "new Giants Stadium") on May 26, 2010.

Anyway the webcast from the band's "secret show" in the carpark for 95.5 WPLJ just ended a short time ago. The set was as follows:

Who Says You Can't Go Home
We Weren't Born to Follow
You Give Love a Bad Name
Wanted Dead or Alive
It's My Life
Livin' on a Prayer

Jon's voice wasn't that great. But "Born to Follow" sounds much edgier live, without the syrupy overproduction... I like it a lot more.

EDIT: You can listen to an audio rip of "Born to Follow" here.

Ahhh....just got a tweet that some tour dates have been posted on the official website. The first North American leg kicks off on February 19, 2010 in Seattle. They'll be touring "well into 2011" according to AEG Live.

Beginning with the band's North American tour launch on February 19th, 2010 in Seattle, WA, Bon Jovi will spend much of the next two years on the road, performing 135 shows in 30 countries. Following in the footsteps of their hugely successful Lost Highway Tour, Bon Jovi will draw fans around the world into The Circle, with a residency at London's O2 arena in June 2010 before returning to America in the fall for an additional nationwide leg, and further dates well into 2011.

Hmm...I hope Australia didn't fall off the map between the Lost Highway tour and The Circle. Not to mention all the countries they haven't visited, let alone toured properly in years.
