Bon Jovi in Atlanta 20/04/18

Bon Jovi's Atlanta show brought with it a couple of changes. "In These Arms" and "New Year's Day" were played for the first time this year, the latter replacing "God Bless This Mess". "We Don't Run" stayed in the spot that "Knockout" had occupied for most of the tour (which is fine by me, since I've said a few times that "Knockout" is my least favourite song on This House Is Not For Sale).

Here's the full set list:

"In These Arms". In the same way that I don't really understand why Bobby Bandiera used to play the solo for this song when you had Richie Sambora in the band, I don't know why John Shanks is playing it now when Phil X is there... No disrespect intended to Bob or Shanks. As for Jon's voice, it is what it is; I remain hopeful he can turn it around like he did in 2008, but accept that may not be the case. It's still nice to see "In These Arms" in the set:
