Ugh. I'm honestly not that excited to see them in Denver. Its a same 'ol same 'ol feel to it. 2nd tour in a row w/out RS. Totally get if there's issues- we're human. But the band's "deal with it" attitude is a major put off to me. That's my good time/$$ on spending on another Greatest Hits Tour. Don't play off that this is the best album evvvver, then not play anything from it at the show. We're not dumb.ReplyDelete
My first ever Bon Jovi show will be w/o RS. I was crushed at first but since I can't undo my very expensive plans, I will go and make the best of it. I know they will put on a good show. However, if this was the 2nd time in two tours that this had happened, I'd be absolutely furious.ReplyDelete
The band is definitely caught in a nightmare with no win/win solution. I am thinking that they can't cancel without a lot of legal issues with promoters, insurance companies, employee contracts, etc. And canceling for fans like me who have to fly thousands of miles to the nearest show--well, canceling wouldn't help me much as I'd be out $$$ on non-refundable tickets.
However, they have to know that there is a point that their fans won't commit to future shows (especially any occurring in the March-April time frame). The band's reputation is taking a beating even with "the show must go on mentality."
I wonder if some of the return to the old songs/playlist is that Phil isn't really familiar with the new album and they didn't have time to rehearse. I could just be making excuses.ReplyDelete
I don't think that's the reason, seeing as they had dropped a lot of the new songs by the end of the last leg.Delete
Have seen Phil X in the Circle Tour. I was disappointed before I got there. He is the perfect substitute,unassuming, good player, not RS, but good. Jon gave more that his usual 100% and the crowd was supportive. I must admit that that was probably because we knew where RS was and understood.ReplyDelete
