The foursome also received the top draw gong and the Eventful fans' choice prize, which was chosen by fan "demands" at Eventful.com, reported Billboard.com.
In a pre-recorded video message, Jon Bon Jovi said: "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."
British boy band One Direction won the breakthrough award, while Taylor Swift received the top package gong for her Red tour, which honoured the top-grossing tour with three or more artists on the line-up. The arena tour featured surprise guest acts as Ed Sheeran, Cher Lloyd, Carly Simon and Tegan And Sara.
"It means the world to me, because touring is the only thing I care about. So thank you everyone in Melbourne that came to the shows that made me a winner," she said in a pre-recorded video.
The 10th annual Billboard Touring Awards took place at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York.
