Bon Jovi in Birmingham 16/2/17

Bon Jovi continued their This House Is Not For Sale Tour with a trip to Birmingham, Alabama for the first time since the New Jersey Tour, if I'm not mistaken.

Here's what was played in 2017:

Set list: Birmingham, AL, USA - Birmingham–Jefferson Convention Complex - 16 February 2017

  1. This House Is Not For Sale
  2. Knockout
  3. You Give Love a Bad Name
  4. Lost Highway
  5. Whole Lot of Leavin'
  6. Roller Coaster
  7. Work for the Working Man 
  8. I'll Sleep When I'm Dead
  9. We Got it Going On
  10. Who Says You Can't Go Home
  11. It's My Life
  12. We Don't Run
  13. God Bless This Mess
  14. Scars on This Guitar
  15. The Devil's in the Temple
  16. Lay Your Hands On Me
  17. Blood on Blood

  19. Bad Medicine
  20. Keep the Faith
  21. Born To Be My Baby
  22. Wanted Dead or Alive
  23. Livin' on a Prayer

I was happy to see "We Weren't Born to Follow" dropped for reasons previously stated, but it's still not a terribly exciting set on paper. I do hope Jon stands his ground and keeps playing lots of songs from This House Is Not For Sale... though I feel like they could've rotated through the entire album by now instead of only playing the same few songs. (They repeated the live listening party four times so it's not like they haven't performed the other tracks before.)

Here's a video of "Born to Be My Baby":

UPDATE 20/2/17: Here's a video of Jon exchanging some banter with the crowd before the band plays "The Devil's in the Temple":

Were you at this show?


  1. I was kinda hoping that "Whole Lot of Leavin'" would be dropped permanently for this tour, as "Reunion" from THINFS sounds similar and is an all-around better song (at least in my opinion).

  2. I agree. I wish all of Lost Highway would be dropped. It has stayed very overplayed. These Days is a much better album that gets no playing time, and personally, I am a big fan Of Bounce....which gets no love whatsoever.


Thanks for giving me your time.
