|Bon Jovi cover The Rolling Stones at Isle of Wight closing set
Bon Jovi headlined the final day of this year's Isle of Wight festival last night (June 16), playing a mammoth two-hour set.
Coming on half hour late and backed by a screen showing various projections and images, the American band kicked off with 'That's What The Water Made Me' before playing classics such as 'It's My Life', 'Keep The Faith' and 'You Give Love A Bad Name'. The band also found time to play a number of covers including The Rolling Stones' 'Start Me Up' and Status Quo's 'Rockin' All Over The World'.
Jon Bon Jovi, who was sporting an American flag-patterned leather jacket, was in high spirits and engaging in lots of on stage chat throughout, telling the crowd that the Isle of Wight reminded him of the Jersey Shore and asking for "someone to take [him] to the sea". Drawing things to a close with an encore of 'Wanted Dead or Alive' and 'Have A Nice Day', Bon Jovi then finished with a huge singalong of 'Livin' On A Prayer' before exiting.
Earlier in the day, meanwhile, the main stage featured sets from The Script (joined by The Voice judge Danny O'Donohue), Paloma Faith and The Boomtown Rats - who played together with Bob Geldof for the first time in 27 years.
