Bon Jovi have announced a huge UK stadium tour for 2019.

The 'Livin' On A Prayer' rockers will hit the road for their first run in six years across the UK including shows at London's Wembey Stadium and Liverpool's Anfield.

Kicking off in Liverpool on June 19, the tour will see the iconic group move onto Wembley before bringing things to an end at Ricoh Arena in Coventry on June 23.

The London show will be special for the band after they had to cancel a show more than a decade ago because the new stadium wasn't ready yet.

In a statement, fronman Jon Bon Jovi said: ''Those huge shows, tens of thousands of people all together as one, that's what we do. And we've got a few things to put right by playing Wembley Stadium.

''We were so excited to be the first band to play that new stadium, I would have helped build it myself to make it happen. So we have a new history to write there. We've had some great nights at the Ricoh too.

''Throw in Anfield as a new venue - OK that's just us showing off! We're honoured to play there and the first thing I'm doing is getting that iconic picture under the 'This Is Anfield' sign.''

The 'This House Is Not For Sale' tour will see Manic Street Preachers join the bill as special guests.

Bon Jovi's lineup - completed by David Bryan, Tico Torres, Hugh McDonald, Everett Bradley and Phil X - are feeling ''refreshed'' and ''better than ever''.

Jon added: ''We've become a new, rejuvenated Bon Jovi. A refreshed line up that kills every night.

''We sound better than ever and we're enjoying every minute. We are out there as a band, feeding off each other and the fans, having the time of our lives all over again.''
