Bon Jovi Concert

On Thursday I went to the Bon Jovi "Because We Can" tour. This was my 5th Bon Jovi concert. In my honest opinion, I think that this was one of the best concerts I've been to. The whole concert lasted 2 hours and 45 minutes. And by 2 hours and 45 minutes, I mean they did not stop except for a brief 5 minute costume change. They sprinkled in some new songs in with the classics.

Jon's down there!!
They played a lot of songs from their "Lost Highway" and "The Circle" albums, as well as "Blood on Blood," and "Someday I'll be Saturday Night." They didn't forget about the classics that got them to where they are now either. Jon really knows how to work the crowd. Flash the mega watt smile, do the hip shake, stare into the crowd and watch us scream type thing. Let's face it, when he does that, we're basically putty in his hands.

A few thoughts:

  1. Watching Jon shake maracas is a religious experience. Goodness can that man shake those!
  2. Amen will be my favorite song off the new CD. It is their own version of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.
  3. I liked the affordable ticket prices they offered. Would I still prefer to sit on the floor, YES! However, it was nice to have options...especially knowing what I now know. (see below!)
At the end of the show Jon said "We'll see you again this year." Uh, what? We had deduced that the statement meant another concert, so that was the topic of conversation on the way home. Guess what?! They are coming back for another concert! Guess who is going to be stalking their website until I see some ticket info?  ME! I'm not sure I can contain my excitement!

No new blog tomorrow, look for one on Monday! As Jon would say, Have A Nice Day!
