Just to keep things interesting, Bon Jovi -- who are actually breaking their own earlier four-night record at the ACC that tied with U2, the Spice Girls and The Police -- returned to Canada with a new multi-million-dollar stage that featured four state-of-the-art flat screen video screens that dropped down from above and later fanned out like venetian blinds during Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen From Mars.
The group opened with the rollicking title track from their latest, country-tinged album Lost Highway, fleshed out by the presence of a female fiddler, before delving into the first '80s-era crowdpleaser of the night, You Give Love a Bad Name, that spawned an audience singalong.
