Preened stadium-rockers Bon Jovi have announced a new UK tour for next summer, including a July date in Glasgow.

Because We Can – The Tour will debut songs from the band's new album What About Now, due out in Spring 2013 – and doubtless feature hits such as Livin’ on a Prayer and You Give Love a Bad Name.

The group last played Scotland at Murrayfield in June last year – leading to a damning and controversial review on the STV site, which attracted an impassioned defence by fans.

The group are offering tickets from just £12.50 for the newly announced Because We Can Tour – though stretch to £125 for the “diamond circle”.

Bon Jovi play Glasgow Hampden Park on July 3, 2013. Tickets for all UK shows go on sale on Friday November 2nd at 9am.

Of the reduced prices, Bon Jovi’s UK tour promoter Rob Hallett said: "I was delighted when they came to me insisting on ticket prices for the Because We Can Tour next year that enabled all to attend."

He added: "If we are to survive as an industry we need to move away from the elitist image of high prices and even higher secondary prices. After all rock and roll always was and always should be the music of the people and that means everyone."

The UK tour dates are as follows:

  • June 8 – Manchester – Etihad Stadium
  • June 9 – Birmingham – Villa Park
  • June 12 – Cardiff – City Stadium
  • June 13 – Sunderland – Stadium of Light
  • June 15 – Dublin – Slane Castle
  • July 3 – Glasgow – Hamden Park
