Bon Jovi are set to go on a long hiatus after completing their current world tour, with mainman Jon Bon Jovi admitting the stress is getting to him.
The band's fourth greatest hits compilation has charted well around the world, but the continued strain of delivering the goods means Bon Jovi will alter plans to keep travelling throughout 2011.
Instead, they'll stop by the middle of the year and don't plan to return any time soon afterwards.
Bon Jovi tells StarPulse.com: When you're going places where they don't have their own electricity, and you say, Don't worry, we'll bring our own,' it's time to take a break.
We have to go to bed. But I'm not retiring for an old man who has no plastic surgery, still has all his own hair and wears a 30-inch waist, I'm doing okay.
Bon Jovi have booked shows across Europe and North American until June, with more dates likely to be added taking the band up to the late summer.
Thanks for the report to RockAAA.com.
