It has been announced that Switchfoot will be opening for Bon Jovi on select dates during their This House Is Not For Sale 2019 European tour this summer. It all kicks off on July 10th at Letzigrund Stadium in Zurich, Switzerland, and this will be one not to miss.
As a warm up to the shows, Switchfoot will bring their high energy show to festivals in Japan, Norway, and Sweden and will also headline shows in London, at the Camden, Electric Ballroom, on the 8thof July, and Amsterdam’s Melkweg on July 15th.
Switchfoot’s front-man Jon Forman is over the moon at the announcement of the Bon Jovi shows: “I remember hearing ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ at my elementary school Summer camp. One of the other kids played it to me from a mix that he had made.” Adding: I remember thinking, ‘This is probably the best air-guitar song that has ever been written.’ Pretty sure I’m still right about that one. What a crazy dream to open for Bon Jovi in European football stadiums – we are so excited! After our set when Bon Jovi takes the stage, I’ll be the one side stage playing the air-guitar like I’m eleven again.”
Switchfoot also launched a 43-city North American leg in support of their album Native Tongue along with Colony House and Tyson Motsenbocker.
