BON JOVI’S 2011 OPEN AIR TOUR
Announce The Breakers as Support Act for 8 European Dates in June
As Bon Jovi gears up for the OPEN AIR TOUR dates across Europe, the band with the #1 global tour of 2010 has announced that Copenhagen’s The Breakers will provide support for 8 dates.
The Breakers are signed to Wicked Cool Records, the label owned by Bon Jovi’s fellow New Jersey legend Steve Van Zandt.
The band’s wild energy is fueled by the weaving double guitars of Anders Bruus and Klaus Højbjerg and the super solid rhythm section of Jackie Larsen (bass) and Thomas Stølsvig (drums). Toke Nisted’s smoky vocals and seamless harmonies evoke the Rhythm and Blues passion of Steve Marriott, Stevie Winwood, Chris Farlowe, and Rod Stewart.
During the Spring of 2010, The Breakers recorded their third album, their first for Wicked Cool, with Little Steven in NYC. Van Zandt produced the self-titled album and co-wrote several songs. Bob Clearmountain mixed the album.
The Breakers performed at Hard Rock Calling in Hyde Park, London in June 2010, closing the second stage just before Paul McCartney played the main stage. The band has been confirmed again for Hard Rock Calling in 2011. The Breakers also travelled to the U.S. for SXSW in March 2009 for two Underground Garage A Go-Go parties hosted by Van Zandt.
Nearing three decades of an incredible career, Bon Jovi shows no sign of slowing down. Globally, the Grammy® Award-winning band has sold more than 125 million albums, and performed more than 2,700 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 35 million fans. Bon Jovi Greatest Hits (Island Def Jam Music Group) debuted at #1 around the world in November, with the band’s three-decade-spanning retrospective charting higher and selling more copies in its first week than their 1994 Cross Road release, which has sold more than 21 million copies to date. Previously, the band’s "Lost Highway Tour" was named the #1 tour of 2008. For more information on all things Bon Jovi, visit www.BonJovi.com.
