|Bon Jovi keeps fans on feet throughout concert
They're older. Their hair is shorter. And they have a whole bunch of songs that their 1980s fans don't necessarily recognize.
But Bon Jovi, the New Jersey-based band known for hits such as "You Give Love a Bad Name" and "Wanted Dead or Alive" might have been the first band to play Intrust Bank Arena that kept the crowd on its feet from start to finish.
The band, led by singer Jon Bon Jovi and guitarist Richie Sambora, filled the arena Thursday night with what appeared to be a sold-out crowd. Arena officials didn't have attendance numbers, but few seats were empty and the floor was packed. The crowd of 15,000-plus was filled out late in the week with fire sales on tickets. Many in the crowd found last-minute seats for $10 and $15 apiece. Tickets were $40 to $500 when they first went on sale.
The band took the stage with one of its classic hits, "Blood on Blood" from the 1988 album "New Jersey." Bon Jovi and Sambora were front stage under the spotlights, with the rest of the band back farther and on risers.
