Just as they’re in a heated battle for the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 with David Bowie, Bon Jovi takes the No. 1 ranking on the weekly Hot Tours chart with ticket sales totals reported from the first 14 cities on the Because We Can Tour that launched on Feb. 10 in Washington, D.C.  Of the 14 arenas, two hosted the band for two-night runs: Bell Centre in Montreal and Air Canada Centre in Toronto – both grossing more than $4 million in ticket sales revenue.  The top U.S. gross came on opening night at the Verizon Center in D.C. with revenue totaling just over $2 million from a sellout crowd of 16,876.  The total box office gross from all 16 sold out shows was more than $26.5 million.
