Bon Jovi is gearing up to hit the road this summer for a North American tour called Bon Jovi 2020.

The American rock band announced the 18-date stint via its official Twitter account on Wednesday morning.

The Bon Jovi 2020 tour comes in support of a forthcoming album of the same name.

On June 10, the Livin’ on a Prayer rockers start things off in Tacoma, Wash., six weeks before their two-night conclusion at Madison Square Garden in New York City on July 27 and 28.

Midway through the trek — July 10, to be exact — frontman/founder Jon Bon Jovi and co. will stop in Toronto for a performance at the Scotiabank Arena.

The 57-year-old singer has invited Canadian rock icon Bryan Adams to join the band on tour.

Though Adams, 60, is an Ontario native, he will not be performing at the Toronto gig. He will also miss the June 20 concert in Las Vegas, Nev.

It’s unclear who will serve as the special guest opening act in either city.

Though no official release date for Bon Jovi 2020, the group’s 15th studio album, has been announced, it’s expected to drop before the upcoming North American tour kicks off.
