“Was anyone here the last three nights? – Insane Scream – Is anyone here for the first time? – Bit of Scream – Is anyone in their first Bon Jovi concert? – Scream – Oh so you’re Bon Jovi Virgins! “
Well Jon, I am definitely, NOT! Another great set list night, although, my legs could no longer rhythm with my will to jump, it takes a work out to keep up with a tour, I’d tell ya!
Now, we didn’t get any Kid Rock opening on the first few nights we went, I am so not a fan of Kid Rock and I don’t understand why he would open for Bon Jovi? Good old days with Goo Good Dolls, Nickelback and Daughtry as opening! Anyway what I was going to say was that good thing we all had our setting seat on the arena because no one could sit through the torture of the openers, seriously?
I have a thing for “Radio” it reminds me of good times in my life, and I absolutely love when they play it live! And “Pretty Woman” ? Really Jon? Who are you trying to kill with the “Pretty woman yeah yeah yeah…” Soooo beautiful *sigh* Open All Night was a new one to me, never heard t live before, and it was funny we all knew the lyrics and couldn’t remember the title of the song lol until of course the chorus!
Now, if you are a hardcore fan, you will pass out when Jon announces he will play a song like “Let it Rock” especially if you, same as me, haven’t had the luck of being to every tour! That was history in the making in front of my eyes, that almost a decade later they were playing this song, I enjoyed every minute of the tacky piano beginning!

Oh, something cute... this was the recording we did on the 3rd or 4th night to David Bryan's Tony Awards! Jon was so cute explaining to the audience what to do and when to make some noise! It was pretty great to be part of it!
