This year I saw Bon Jovi play the O2 – twice. the first gig was fantastic – I enjoyed every minute of it, but missed hearing some of my favourite songs. The second gig however, was 27 of their greatest songs ever. It was amazing.
Jon, no matter what he does still rocks out like a 20-something guy playing in a band with his buddies. They make it look so easy. They are well-rehearsed, well-coordinated and seem to have fun.
The last night of their residence at the O2 was superb. It was like they didn’t want the night to end. They played a five song encore and carried on rocking, way beyond the ‘acceptable’ 11:00pm curfew. And the crowd loved it.
Will I buy their next album? Probably.
Will I attend any of their next UK gigs? Definitely.
There’s nothing like hearing Blood on Blood, Bed of Roses, and These Arms in one night.
