Bon Jovi will perform at Subiaco Oval, Perth, on December 8; Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, on December 11; Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, on December 14; and Sydney Football Stadium on December 17.
Tickets go on sale on July 8.
In the interview, Jon talks about the tour, fame, and the band's psychologist who "keeps them real." He also reiterated that he doesn't want to be the Stones:
Bon Jovi knows his band is still relevant to millions of fans worldwide.
But he is uncertain about performing at Mick Jagger's age, 66.
"Let me be clear. The Rolling Stones are our idols, role models and heroes. But I don't know if I can be out here, doing this, 20 years from now," said Bon Jovi, who is 48. "So I want to be the Stones in every other way there is, except touring forever."
