Bon Jovi gave the Wembley crowd a goodbye present of three solid hours of good old fashioned rock'n'roll when they played the final gig before the Stadium is pulled down and rebuilt.
The support acts, the DumDums and Toploader - the last British bands to play at Wembley, are pretty mediocre, suffering from dubious sound quality, a non-descript stage set and the fact that they aren't Bon Jovi. The crowd show a fleeting interest in Toploader's 'Dancing in the Moonlight' but seem to have more fun sending some spectacular Mexican waves rippling round the whole stadium, with even the central pit joining in the fun.
Bon Jovi opens with the familiar 'woh woh woh' and Jon struts on in white leathers to belt out 'Living On A Prayer'. The whole stadium is screaming out 'You gotta hold on to what we got, it doesn't make a difference if we make it or not', and the concert has well and truly begun.
