|Bon Jovi rock it in Munich
WHEN JON BON JOVI said the rain 'was the angels crying because they couldn't get a ticket' my thoughts this gig was going to be a cheesefest were fully justified.
But credit where credit's due.
Everybody enjoys a bit of cheese at times and there is no one better at it in the rock world than this mighty foursome.
Jon, guitarist RICHIE SAMBORA, keyboard whizz DAVID BRYAN and drummer TICO TORRES had 72,000 crazy German fans at Munich's Olympic Stadium like putty in their hands from start to finish with a barn-stomping, sing-a-long, two and a half hour set.
I like the fact they don't take themselves too seriously.
I was a select group of journalists invited to this second date of their European tour to promote their recent, and more country-themed album, Lost Highway.
However instead of sticking rigidly to their more unfamiliar materal, I was delighted to see they genuinely still enjoy blasting out their old hits.
And even though he may be getting on a bit now, Jon is still a winner with the ladies, showing off his gleaming white teeth and energetic dance moves in a leather jacket that exposed his bare chest underneath.
