Bon Jovi - iHeartRAdio set list + interview

Bon Jovi have finished playing at the iHeartRadio Festival after being shafted -- I mean, shifted :P -- to the Friday instead of Saturday.

Set was pretty standard as you'd probably expect:

iHeartRadio Music Festival - MGM Grand - September 21, 2012
  1. Livin' on a Prayer
  2. You Give Love a Bad Name
  3. It's My Life
  4. Wanted Dead or Alive
  5. Who Says You Can't Go Home
  6. Bad Medicine / Shout!

There are some pictures and a mini recap of Bon Jovi's set on the iHeartRadio website.

And here's an interview from before the show:

I missed the broadcast but from what I've read, Jon was very sick and/or sounded even worse than he did on the Tokyo 2008 WOWOW broadcast. However, I'd love to hear comments from anyone who either watched/listened to the stream, or was there live... What did you think of the show?

ADDENDUM: Hath now has audio and video links on her blog so you can judge for yourself if you missed it. Hmmm...


  1. I only caught the last 3 songs. I thought he was forcing it a bit. Considering that they usually play 2 hours, it would be hard to get into the groove with only 6 songs. Some of the more critical comments from other sites seem to refer more to the first 3 songs. I usually don't complain about "Who Says" but this one had w-a-y too many "al'rights."

    He didn't seem sick to me in the interview or in his performance but I think the desert air did a number on his voice. Vegas can be a problem for singers. Whatever, I think he gave it his best shot, worked the crowd well and I have no complaints


Thanks for giving me your time.
