A review by Marlz /

I was thrilled to here that the guys would be
coming to Australia. The only disappointment being
the whole RUMBA involvement. Australia has really
been living in a 'Bon Jovi Dry County'. The last time
the band did a solid tour was during These Days. Since then, there was Jon's Destination Anywhere gigs, Richie's solo trip, in 2002 the guys did a benefit concert in Melbourne and now more recently RUMBA. In Brisbane Bon Jovi were lined up with the likes of Shaggy, Pink and Toya.
Bon Jovi were second last on the bill (Shaggy was last) and
performed 11 songs. I was up the front and yes, 8 hours of standing up was worth the wait.
When Jon and the guys hit the stage the crowd was really ready to party. Everyone was on their feet.Jon had everyone clapping and jumping around-from the front row all the way back to the top of the arena.The security guards looked really impressed, too. After all they, like myself, had been standing up listening to hours of mostly 'here now gone tomorrow' acts.
I had a friend with me who always liked Bon Jovi's songs
but he had no idea how explosive they were live.He was amazed and just a week before he'd seen the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I guess BJ by far upstaged the Peppers. Anyway, the
crowd was singing in unison to almost everyone song, at
some points the crowd volume surpassed the band.

The Bon Jovi performances on video and TV that I've seen
have been awesome but the real life concert thing
is phenomenal. Jon moves around on stage so much
and the band and him play with such precision.

Now all Australia needs is Bon Jovi to come back and
play the stadiums.
