Bon Jovi's "The Circle Tour"
Mon, 12 Jul 2010 09:33:45
Bon Jovi's "The Circle Tour" has scored #1 on Billboard's Boxscore chart for their recent residency at London's O2 Arena. So what does that mean in layman's terms? The tour has earned the top-grossing spot for the second time this year on Billboard's Boxscore chart and the fourth time on Billboard's Hot Tours chart. Translation? Jovi sells lots of tickets.
Bon Jovi opened the O2 three years ago, and now the band has come full circle with a stellar twelve show run that began on June 7 and culminated on June 26, 2010. To launch the 2010 residency, which featured special guest appearances by Kid Rock and Bob Geldof, the band blew the roof off of the O2, treating fans to the first ever performance on top of the venue's dome, nearly 200 feet above the ground. I guess no one in Jovi is afraid of heights? Throughout the series of concerts at the famed arena, Bon Jovi played a total of 72 unique songs, surpassing their original goal, with selections spanning their entire collection of 11 studio albums.
"The Circle Tour" follows in the wake of the release of the band's eleventh studio album, The Circle, which debuted at #1 in numerous countries including the U.S.
