New Jersey rock outfit Bon Jovi has unraveled an extensive 2013 North American itinerary in support of the impending release, "What About Now."

"Bon Jovi Because We Can - The Tour" will kick off Feb. 9 in Uncasville, CT, and hit arenas and stadiums across the continent through the summer. So far, 33 major markets have been confirmed, with another nine cities expected to be announced in the coming weeks. Overseas legs in Australia, Europe, the Far East, Africa and Latin America will also be added, according to a press release.

The schedule includes two-night stands in Montreal (2/13-14) and Toronto (2/17-18), as well as two consecutive performances (7/24-25) in Bon Jovi's home state.

Tickets for many shows, including international dates, are on sale now via the band's website. A wide range of ticket options will be available, including tickets starting as low as $19.50, plus service charges.

"What About Now," Bon Jovi's 12th studio album, will hit shelves in March, according to a press release. The effort follows 2009's "The Circle," which debuted at the top of The Billboard 200, as well as charts in four other countries.

In recent weeks, Jon Bon Jovi has made headlines for his involvement in recovery efforts after Hurricane Sandy ravaged his home state of New Jersey. The iconic rocker took part in the Hurricane Sandy telethon and will perform at the "12-12-12" benefit alongside Kanye West, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and many others.
