Bon Jovi concert chronology

The Slippery When Wet Tour was a concert tour by American hard rock band Bon Jovi that ran from 1986 through to 1987. The tour was put on in support of the band's multi-platinum 1986 album Slippery When Wet. The tour was the first major worldwide tour for the band, visiting places such as Australia and Canada for the first time.

Personnel[edit]

Supporting acts[edit]

The major support act for the Slippery When Wet tour was Cinderella. They played at the majority of the shows during the North American leg of the tour. In mainland Europe, heavy metal band Queensrÿche was the support act. For the UK leg of the tour, support came from the British band FM on all dates except for the last three[1] for which Queensrÿche was the support act. Judas Priest actually headlined over the band during the first leg in Canada.

The tour also took the band to the Monsters of Rock 1986 in Germany with Warlock, Michael Schenker Group, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Ozzy Osbourne and Scorpions (Headliner).

Setlist[edit]

The setlist of the tour varied between shows and countries. An average of 16 to 18 songs were played at each show. This is a set list from the show at Kemper Arena, Kansas City, Missouri, United States which was also popular throughout the Tour:
