The sun never sets on a Bon Jovi. We think Jon, Richie and the other ones (okay, we kid, David and Tico) have been tour continuously since 1980. They just keep circling the globe over and over.

So we’re not surprised that more Bon Jovi dates have been announced  for 2011, in support of the band’s “Greatest Hits” set that comes out Nov. 9.  As we previously wrote, “Bon Jovi--The Circle Tour” will play in movie theaters across the land on Nov. 8. Additionally, the band will appear on “The Today Show,” Nov. 12;  A&E’s “Private Sessions,” Nov. 17; “The American Music Awards,” Nov. 21 (see other performers here); “Larry King Live,” Nov. 22; “Ellen,” Nov. 23 and CNN’s “Heroes,” Nov. 25.  These Jersey Boys are hard workers.
