"Bon Jovi sticks to vintage formula of unabashed rock"
|Boston Show Review from Boston Herald
``I ain't here for the sport of politics,'' Jon Bon Jovi told a sold-out FleetCenter audience last night. No, he was there for ``the religion of rock 'n' roll.''

It was only the first of many Bruce-isms the New Jersey native made during his band's two-hour set, including a loud, ``Is there a doctor in the house?'' intro to the rollicking ``Bad Medicine.''
There was a time in the '80s when Bon Jovi was all about Big Hair. Now it's all about Big Music: big guitars, big choruses, big ballads, and big, big star power from the lead singer.
