Kansas City set list

Finally got online to post the set list (I do have a life and commitments outside of blogging about Bon Jovi, believe it or not :P). God I hope "I Love This Town" hasn't snaked its way back as a "regular". Actually, Bon Jovi seems to be averaging about four Lost Highway songs a night; is this the Circle tour? Jon, if I tell you you're an amazing guitarist, will you at least bring back "Thorn In My Side" with the twin solo/jam?

We did kind of get a new song, "Born To Be Wild" (Steppenwolf cover), in the "Bad Medicine" medley.

Thanks to Big Apple Jovi Girl for the PBP.

  1. I actually like I Love This Town, so they could keep that and jettison We've Got it Going On and Work for the Working Man and I'd be happy. I'm glad Love's the Only Rule is there though since that's a fave of mine from The Circle. I'm just sad that they aren't doing something besides Runaway from the 1st and 2nd records every night and it's just sporadic.

    On an unrelated note, I was in your hometown 3 years ago today ending up a 5 week trip through WA through a Rotary cultural exchange. We went from Perth to Kojonup to Albany to Dunnsborough to Margaret River and then Harvey and Mandurah. I know I'm forgetting some place in there though. The last 2 weeks we only stayed maybe 3 days in each place, so it's harder to keep up. LOVED IT though. It was always my dream to go to Australia so I was thrilled to make it before I am old and grey. LOL

  2. Glad you enjoyed it! Have you been anywhere else in Australia? I'm hoping to make a trip to the US, among other places, at least once in my lifetime.

    I Love This Town and We Got It are probably my least favourite LH songs, though I think the reason ILTT grates me so much is because BonJovi.com had that autoplaying MLB video on the site for a year.

  3. LOL Yeah, that is a great reason to not want to hear that song! Personally, I could do without Bad Name, Prayer and Wanted in a show, but that's because I've heard them too many times in the past 20+ years. I know those are songs they *have* to play, but there are so many others I'd personally rather hear.

    Other than the Sydney airport, I've only gotten to see those parts of WA. I did not have enough vacation time from work to stay on in Sydney after we hit WA, but one member of our team did. Maybe some day! This trip was paid for my Rotary and not by me or I'd still be waiting and wanting!


Thanks for giving me your time.
