After yesterday’s announcement of Friday’s headliners, The Stone Roses, the organisers of the Isle of Wight festival have revealed that Bon Jovi will head the the bill on Sunday.

The Grammy-winning band will close the main stage in a UK festival exclusive on Sunday, June 16, rounding off the weekend.

Over almost three decades, Bon Jovi have performed for more than 35 million fans in over 2,700 concerts across 50 countries – as well as clocking up a tally of 130 million albums sales.

Lead singer Jon Bon Jovi said: “The Isle of Wight Festival is legendary and we're excited to join in the long tradition of Rock 'n' Roll history.  

"We are honoured to be the headliners on the Main Stage Sunday night. This will mark our first visit to the island and I expect it will prove to be a highlight of our tour and of 2013.”

John Giddings, the festival’s promoter commented: “I can’t imagine a better rock band with more hits to close our Sunday night. The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen are hard acts to follow – but I think they’ll do it!”

The complete Isle of Wight Festival line-up will feature a mix of iconic artists and up-and-coming acts over three stages.
