Bon Jovi Abu Dhabi set list 1/10/15

In another setback to the tour, Bon Jovi's two scheduled concerts in Taipei, Taiwan were cancelled due to Typhoon Dujuan.

So next up was Abu Dhabi. Jon had the #18 on his guitar in honour of Evan Murray, a New Jersey high school quarterback who died during a football game. It was a touching tribute.

When Bon Jovi played in Abu Dhabi on the Lost Highway tour, that show marked the first time the electric version of Bed of Roses had been played in five years. This time around there were no such pleasant surprises, and sadly, this review highlighted what many of us have known about Jon's voice for quite some time. It used to be that only a certain type of diehard fan really noticed when Jon sounded bad, but it seems like it's getting to the point where we can't just say "Oh, he's having an off night" most nights anymore. I say this not to be mean, but because Jon is one of my musical idols and frankly, it hurts to hear a guy who used to have one of the best rock voices now struggling to hit the notes in his own songs.

Anyway, here's what was played.
