Bon Jovi concert

Went to an amazing Bon Jovi concert last night.

I’ve always been a little bit of a closet Bon Jovi fan . . . it’s one of those guilty pleasures, like eating raw chocolate chip cookie dough. I’m one of the only people I know who not only owns, but actually listens to These Days. My copy of Crossroad is almost entirely worn out, and my Keep The Faith CD isn’t far behind.

The concert itself was great – the Goo Goo Dolls played an incredible opening set that was practically worth the ticket price on its own, and Bon Jovi’s music is tailor-made for large arenas. Of course, with such a large repertoire of hits, disappointments were almost a guarantee. Notably absent from last night’s setlist were such hits as Keep The Faith, Bed of Roses, Blaze of Glory, and the song that turned me into a huge fan at age fifteen: Always. Among others. The band played for two hours and squeezing in all their great songs would have taken at least twice that.

No political commentary, though. Just rock n’ roll. Gotta appreciate that.
