Bon Jovi coming to Amalie Arena in Tampa



As Valentine's Day treats go, this sounds even better than a bed of roses.

Bon Jovi is heading out on tour in support of their forthcoming album This House is Not for Sale, and it includes a Feb. 14 date at Amalie Arena in Tampa. Tickets will go on presale Oct. 10 and be available to the public starting Oct. 15. Keep an eye out here for updates.

This will be the legendary rockers' first Tampa show since drawing more than 18,000 fans to the arena in 2013, where they laid down a slew of radio staples like You Give Love a Bad Name and Livin' on a Prayer.

This time they'll be without guitarist Richie Sambora, who left the band in 2013. But they will have a new album at their disposal -- one fans will receive gratis with every ticket purchase through Live Nation.

And considering the special date on the calendar, maybe they'll treat Tampa fans to a few more ballads. Bed of Roses, certainly, but how about Always and I'll Be There For You? Any special Bon Jovi love songs you want to hear?
