Bon Jovi concert chronology

The I'll Sleep When I'm Dead Tour was a concert tour by American hard rock band Bon Jovi that ran during the second half of 1993. The tour was an extension of the Keep the Faith Tour which was in promotion of the 1992 multi-platinum album Keep the Faith. The tour returned to Europe, Asia and North America and also visited countries such as Australia and Argentina, which were not visited during the initial Keep the Faith tour earlier in the year.

Personnel[edit]

Support acts[edit]

The first leg in North America was supported by hard rock band Extreme from Massachusetts. The European leg of the tour had an arrangement of support acts. These acts were Little Angels, Billy Idol and Manic Street Preachers. Savatage had to turn down the European leg of the tour in Fall 1993 because of their own US commitments and then Criss Oliva's death on top of that.[1] Eight of the dates on the Australian leg of the tour was supported by Jimmy Barnes while the support act in Perth was local outfit Rough Justice. Wild T and the Spirit was the support act for the final leg of the tour in Canada.
