"Bon Jovi's Music Tired But Undeniably Popular" 10 July 2001
Another Milwaukee show review


The '80s were back in full swing at the Marcus Amphitheater on Sunday night as New Jersey's native sons Bon Jovi closed Summerfest this year, proving that 20 years is way too long for most bands to stick around and that it's okay for guys to use hairspray.

Kicking off at 8:45, right as the sun went down, it was as much fashion show as concert, right from the start.

For some reason clips from the band's VH1 "Behind the Music" special preceded their taking the stage, in case somebody in the audience missed the 863 times it's been played on the cable music network. Though seemingly unnecessary, it fit in with the rest of the evening. These guys cannot get enough of themselves.

The music was a mixture of more than 20 songs new, old and really old. They played massive hits like "I'll Be There for You," "Lay Your Hands on Me," "You Give Love a Bad Name" and "Bad Medicine," alongside lesser known tunes "Say It Isn't So," "One Wild Night" and "In These Arms."

Bon Jovi definitely gave fans their moneys worth, playing for more than two hours. And the fans love them for it. The 20,000-plus in attendance ate up every word out of lead singer/part-time actor Jon Bon Jovi's mouth. They were on their feet and screaming the entire night.
