Was anyone at the show? What did you think?


  1. Have you seen you give love a bad name? Its awesome with the lights intro and then it starts really powerfull!

  2. The show last night in DC was AWESOME! SO wonderful to hear a great mix of old and new music from Jon and the boys! They were energetic and spot on with everything and played for 2 hours and 20 minutes. The place ROCKED!!! We were delighted that our "limited view" side-stage tickets were JUST 8 FEET FROM THE STAGE and FRONT ROW! Best seats I've had in my 30 years as their biggest fan :-) Cannot wait to see another show on this tour...especially after the new album comes out.

  3. Great nmmix of songs??? NO songs from first 2 albums, booooo

  4. No Runaway! They did that tune on their Circle tour on May 12, 2011 at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, IA. I missed their show in Kansas City, MO in March 2010 at the Sprint Center. I've got tickets in the upper level behind the stage for cheap price for their April 13th show at the Sprint Center in KCMO.

    1. I totally agree! Brutal how they neglected all the true classics that made them icons. I could careless about the new album... one song would be plenty!

  5. It was a great show, however it seemed like maybe they were having trouble with the production screens working correctly. There were no large format screens of them, as they have had in the past, just seemed as something was missing and they had people working on the screens prior to the show? I had side view seats pretty close, so it didn't effect me, but I was wondering if those in the far back could see anything but a spec of Jon...we all love to see his grin up close! They did a great job performing and did not dissappoint!! I see them again in march, curious to see if production is anything different.

  6. Great band... but worst setlist they have ever had. 7 songs from a new album which is not even released yet.... what happened to the classics? That's why i paid $400.00 for seats on the floor... not to hear Amen, What the Water Made me, etc.

  7. I had front row seats to the right of the stage and loved every minute of the rockin concert! Jon and richie looked like they were happy to be back on tour. He even shared his dozen of pink roses with some special people in the circle. I got some great pictures! Love his smile and energy.

    1. With the exception of the fact that you think Jon is hot, don't make it sound like this was the best concert. The setlist was brutal. If you are true fan from the start.. they should still be playing more HITS from New Jersey and Slippery When Wet.

    2. I was there also and I have been a fan from the very begining, also love to hear the older songs, even ones from the albums that weren't commercial hits...but I do have to admit that while I was very excited to hear them play Wild is the Wind, the crowd did not respond very well, most seemed like they didn't know the song at all?? So while there are those of us out there I do think we may be the minority anymore and I can see the bands point of view that they have to try and play what works best for the audience as a whole. While Who Says You Cant Go Home is probably one of my least favorite Bon Jovi songs, everyone else seems tolove it and it gets a great audience I see why they keep it on the sets.


Thanks for giving me your time.
