Bon Jovi Schedules Home State Club Date

Bon Jovi has scheduled another surprise show, this time in the band's own backyard.

Fans have just been alerted that the group will be playing at the Tradewinds, a small beach club in Sea Bright, New Jersey, on Thursday night. Tickets are scheduled to go on sale Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. (ET).

A spokesperson for Def Jam/Mercury, Bon Jovi's label, told MTV News the company had no advance warning that the show was going to be scheduled, and aren't aware if any other dates will follow.

The band recently announced a surprise appearance at the House Of Blues in Chicago set for May 4 (see "Bon Jovi Schedules Chicago Club Show").

The group has been scheduling dates sporadically on both sides of the ocean in advance of a world tour that kicks off in mid-July. The band's new album, "Crush," is due June 13.
