Bon Jovi announced today that the Tacoma Dome is going to be a stop on its “Because We Can” tour on Oct. 5.

The band is offering all sorts of VIP packages – pricey additions but full of swag and backstage access. Check out their website for full details. VIP/backstage tickets for the Tacoma show go on sale at 10 a.m. on June 4.

If you can’t make the Tacoma show they’ll be playing Spokane the next day.

The concert comes as good news for both cities. Bon Jovi is in second place this week for North American concert revenue, according to Pollstar. They are just behind Taylor Swift (who will play the Dome on Aug. 31) and ahead of Kenny Chesney (who is playing CenturyLink Field on Saturday.)

Here’s more from the announcement:

The 2013 arena tour takes live performance to a whole new level with a constantly evolving stage production that transforms on every song. With over ninety high-speed moving elements, it is a kinetic sculpture of light and video, a living and breathing environment to support Bon Jovi on stage as they bring fans more than 30 years of hits and the latest, never-before-seen technology.

After wrapping up its European open-air run, Bon Jovi will return stateside to heat up the summer with six stadium shows beginning July 12 in Chicago. The stadium dates will feature a different state-of-the-art stage production, emulating a larger-than-life classic 1959 Buick Electra. These summer shows will include the recently announced “Fan Kickoff Concert” at FirstEnergy Stadium — where Bon Jovi will help the Cleveland Browns launch the upcoming football season — and will culminate with two nights on the group’s home turf at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

While Bon Jovi continues to set the bar with an innovative and state-of-the-art live show, they also bring an unprecedented interactive digital experience to fans via the free BON JOVI APP. This ties together ground-breaking Augmented Reality technology, never-before-seen by fans around the world. Once downloaded, open the Bon Jovi app, click on Augmented Reality and point your phone at the WHAT ABOUT NOW album artwork wherever it appears for a one-of-kind immersive experience.

Bon Jovi’s return to the road in 2013 launches the latest chapter in an ongoing blockbuster run which has secured their status as the essential live rock band. “BON JOVI Because We Can – The Tour” will continue across Europe, Japan, Brazil, Australia, and North America.
