Jon Bon Jovi Makes Tour, Movie Plans

Singer to star in vampire movie before hitting road with bandmates.

Bon Jovi have wrapped up their North American tour and have headed overseas, but they'll be home for the holidays.

The band is spending the week doing press interviews and preparing for the December 11 Nobel Peace Prize awards concert in Oslo, Norway, but they'll be back in the States in time for a couple of Christmas concerts and an appearance at the Super Bowl.

Jon Bon Jovi will again perform at the A Very Special Christmas fund-raiser for the Special Olympics at the White House on December 14 alongside Macy Gray, Wyclef Jean, B.B. King, John Popper, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Stevie Nicks.

The full band will perform at a Christmas show in San Diego on December 15 and again the following day at the Not So Silent Christmas concert at Los Angeles' Wiltern Theatre. They'll take a break for the holidays before regrouping in January for a Super Bowl performance in Tampa, Florida.

Jon Bon Jovi said backstage at the recent VH1 Awards that his next project will be another film, this time in a starring role.

"I'm doing a vampire movie in January and February in Mexico, and then we're going to head back on the road in late March," he said. "It's a pretty hip script."

The movie, "Vampires: Los Muertos," is the follow-up to John Carpenter's 1998 movie "Vampires," although this one will be directed by Tommy Lee Wallace.

The band's tour will start in Australia in March, return to the States and then head to Europe in the summer.

North American fans that can't wait until then can pick up "Crush Tour Live," Bon Jovi's DVD/VHS release of a concert in Zurich due December 19. Also available is a limited-edition fan club video of a members-only performance last month in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
