Tulsa set list + review

Bon Jovi took the Circle tour to Oklahoma tonight for their first show in Tulsa since 1989. There were some breakdowns in communication so if it turns out the set list was a bit different to what I've posted, I'll make the changes accordingly. Seems like a short gig, although we did get a tour debut. Just not 100% sure what song! It was either "Open All Night" from Bounce, "Open All Night" from the box set, or "These Arms Are Open All Night" (also from the box set)...

EDIT: Confirmation that it was the Bounce song.

But in quick time, here's a review by Jennifer Chancellor for Tulsa World:
Bon Jovi kick-started its set Tuesday night with an inspirational and perhaps too-literal video montage of the rock act’s tour and new album, “The Circle,” with a large circle of words that morphed into, well, a huge circle.

“So, what y’all been up to for the last 20 years?” lead singer Jon Bon Jovi asked the audience, referencing how long it’s been since his band last performed in Tulsa. He then launched into “When We Were Beautiful,” and his eyes looked misty as cameras projected his face onto a huge screen behind him and drums rumbled the BOK Center arena.
