Jon Bon Jovi doesn't want to be another wave in the ocean. He is a rock, not just another grain of sand. And he definitely rocked Wednesday night at the Honda Center. Why? Because he can. Bon Jovi made a pit stop in Anaheim as part of its "Because We Can" tour, in support of the band's 12th album, "What About Now.

With returns to Wales and South Africa and first-time shows in Bulgaria and Poland, the tour snagged the No. 1 spot in Pollstar's last two tour rankings, having already grossed $142.1 million.
