Bon Jovi in Montreal 18/05/18 + What next?

Bon Jovi's second of two consecutive nights in Montreal marked a) the end of this leg of the tour, b) possibly the last show of the tour, and c) probably the most surprising set of the tour. They signalled it early -- This is the first show of the This House Is Not For Sale Tour not to open with the title track. Jon started the concert in the crowd, while the B-stage where he's been singing "Amen" and "Bed of Roses" was not used (and those two songs were dropped).

Here's what was played:

Montreal, QC, Canada - Bell Centre - May 18, 2018
  1. I'll Sleep When I'm Dead
  2. You Give Love a Bad Name
  3. This House Is Not For Sale
  4. Whole Lot of Leavin'
  5. Lost Highway
  6. Roller Coaster
  7. Because We Can
  8. Runaway
  9. It's My Life
  10. We Weren't Born to Follow
  11. We Got It Goin' On
  12. Keep the Faith
  13. Who Says You Can't Go Home
  14. Born to Be My Baby
  15. Lay Your Hands on Me
  16. New Year's Day
  17. I'd Die For You
  18. Bad Medicine

    Encore #1:
  19. (You Want To) Make a Memory
  20. In These Arms
  21. Wanted Dead or Alive
  22. Livin' on a Prayer

    Encore #2:
  23. Blood on Blood
  24. I'll Be There For You

At this stage, no other shows have been announced. Jon did mention Japan and Australia to an interviewer at the iHeartRadio Awards, but there was talk (and expectation) of a 2018 European tour, which ultimately fell through. So who knows? Will they make it to the rest of the world? Will there be another album?

Jon's latest Instagram post implies there'll at least be more shows (whether that's for this album cycle or the next) so I guess we'll wait and see...

"Bed of Roses". This was shot from in front of the main stage, so you see a lot of Phil X and David Bryan rather than Jon, who's out in the crowd for most of the song:
