Bon Jovi in Tampa 14/2/17

Bon Jovi headed to Tampa, Florida for Valentine's Day on their This House Is Not For Sale Tour. I'm a bit disappointed there was no love song for the occasion -- like "Always" or "Bed of Roses"... or even "Real Love", which is easier on Jon's voice and has the benefit of promoting the current album. I don't expect Bon Jovi to be Bruce Springsteen, but the Tampa set list is exactly the same as what was played in Atlanta a few days ago...

  13. We Don't Run
  14. God Bless This Mess

Here's Jon talking about old radio stations before kissing a woman in the crowd:

And a video of "Scars on this Guitar", which I guess is technically a love song, albeit to a guitar. While I like the song, I think my favourite part of the video was watching Everett Bradley in the background 😜:

"Roller Coaster" from behind the stage:

Were you at this concert?


  1. Very disappointing. I'm fearing a typical BJ standard set list rut. Bruce sets the bar pretty high but he's also also pushing 70. To think BJ could still at least hang with Bruce to some extent wouldn't be unreasonable.


Thanks for giving me your time.
