Videos from Adelaide

There's been a marked lack of good videos from this show at the time of typing, but I'll check again later. If you'd like to share any videos from Adelaide, feel free to link to them in the comments.

Edit 6/12/18: Videos have arrived!

"Living with the Ghost". This is probably my favourite song from the album, and it's good to see Jon start to move around and perform this instead of being glued to his mic stand the entire time:

"When We Were Us":

"Keep the Faith":

Other notes

Jon dedicated "It's My Life" to  two brothers who were victims of a convicted Adelaide paedophile:

"These two brothers they put on masks and they fought a childhood abuser," Jon Bon Jovi said to the crowd.
"They met him in court today and he was sentenced to jail.
"We have to protect our children, it's not easy when you have to stand up in court and face your devil.
"So for those two brave brothers, my heart, my respect, this is for you guys."
Read the full story on the ABC News website.

You can also watch this report on 9 News Adelaide, which includes Jon's words at the concert and an interview with one of the brothers:
