Bon Jovi at Dick's Sporting Goods Open 18/08/17

It's been four months since the end of the first leg of the This House Is Not For Sale Tour, but Bon Jovi came out of hibernation to perform at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open. The band started about 90 minutes late due to a storm that left them temporarily stranded in New Jersey, and once the gig got underway, there were comments on social media about the sound being terrible.

Here's what was eventually played:

Were you at this show?


  1. Now that's a setlist!!! Wow. I wish they had performed some of the songs at the show I went to but I am happy that the fans who had to wait so long were able to hear some great songs.

  2. worst venue in the world for a concert ! the ground sloped up instead of down and short people couldn't see ! rude security, rude NY state troopers (shame on you!) horrible shuttle service to over-priced parking lots, everyone crammed on one side and no one on the other, waited 5 hours for a concert that started almost 2 hours late, drunk assholes everywhere ...a word of advice to Dick's Sporting Goods and En Joeie Golf Course : if you're gonna run an act the magnitude of BJ then BE EQUIPPED AND BE PREPARED for what it will entail and BE ORGANIZED ! I would not go back to this shithole if someone paid me !

    1. Thanks for sharing... Sorry you didn't have a better experience. :(

    2. The concert wasn't that bad. Yes it was a big venue.

  4. Great set. Finally some good songs that need to be played. These days is one of my favorites and must say it was a little painful hearing him sing it. Hopefully they keep playing it and his voice adjusts.

    1. Agree. The setlist was a huge improvement but wow that was painful to listen to. I hope he can get some help to rehab his voice. It's astonishing how quickly it has declined over the last few years.


Thanks for giving me your time.
