Bon Jovi Receive Billboard Touring Award

Bon Jovi were honored at the recent Billboard Touring Awards for their "Because We Can" trek. The band took home the night's greatest honor, the Top Tour Award, which acknowledges the act with the highest grossing tour.

BJ also won the Top Draw Award, acknowledging the top ticket selling tour and the Eventful Fans' Choice Award, which is determined by fan "demands" at Eventful.com.

"This is our 30th year in the business, and to still have Number One tours and Number One albums is a real treat and a blessing. Thanks for all your support," said Jon Bon Jovi, accepting the award via video link.

Other big winners on the night included Taylor Swift, One Direction, P!nk, the Rolling Stones and George Strait.

The Touring Awards were given out last week in New York City and are based on the Billboard Boxscore Chart and box office performance for the period of Oct. 1, 2012 through Sept. 30, 2013.
