|Bon Jovi’s highway full of hits
Rock fans took the “lost highway” to Coventry last night - the only Midlands venue on the current Bon Jovi tour.

And perform they did, with a heartstopping two-hour show which blew the roof off Coventry City FC’s football stadium, so to speak.
The crowd was treated to an onslaught of hits old and new, kicking off with Lost Highway, the title track of their most recent album, and with Keep The Faith, It’s My Life and Bad Medicine being just what the doctor ordered.
