London (O2) 1st night set list

Opening nights tend to get a bad rap but it was a somewhat underwhelming set list for Bon Jovi's first London show. One down, 11 to go.

Bon Jovi also played a short set on the roof of the O2 prior to this show:
We Weren't Born to Follow
Superman Tonight
You Give Love a Bad Name
It's My Life


  1. At least they seem to be playing a stadium-length show but that's a disappointing setlist. Glad I didn't get sucked into this.

  2. As above; nice to see a lengthy set for an indoor show. Hope there's no lull mid-residency; i booked tickets for sun 13th which was originally the final night but now in the middle!


Thanks for giving me your time.
