Bon Jovi Live Review 27 June 2011
Manchester Confidential article

Source: Manchester Confidential

”I CAN’T believe it. 45,000 crazy fans are dancing away on a wet rainy night in Manchester. I’m the luckiest man in the world.”

And with that, Jon Bon Jovi made the whole of Old Trafford forget about the weather on a cold Friday night in Manchester.

“It’s like having a shower with tons of people,” he said. He’d probably know, given his antics in the 80s.

Bon Jovi were playing the cricket ground as part of their marathon world tour to support their Greatest Hits album, although the man himself insisted it ‘isn’t a goodbye tour or a nostalgia tour.’

That didn’t stop them rattling through their back catalogue though – racing through 23 songs from six different albums across 27 years. Every hit had the crowd singing along and waving their hands – or smartphones – in the air. There can’t be many people out there who don’t know the words to ‘You Give Love a Bad Name,’ ‘It’s My Life’ and of course the anthem that is ‘Livin’ on a Prayer.’

The only disappointment a couple of songs I didn’t know, so vast is their arsenal of rock. I still enjoyed ‘Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen from Mars’ and ‘Raise your Hands’ though. As soon as ‘When We Were Beautiful’ came on I was back to belting out a tune with everyone else.
