The Crush Tour was a worldwide concert tour by American rock band Bon Jovi. This tour was in support of the band's multi-platinum selling album Crush. This was the band's first tour since their These Days Tour of 1995–1996 . The band played to 1.1 million fans in 40 arena and stadium venues across North America, Europe and Japan. The tour was made famous as Bon Jovi was the last rock band to play at the old Wembley Stadium, with two sold out concerts at that venue. The band released a DVD entitled The Crush Tour which was filmed at Letzigrund Stadion, Zurich, Switzerland on August 30, 2000 in front of 55,000 people. Due to the overwhelming response of this tour it was extended into 2001 with the renamed One Wild Night Tour.
