A review by Kevin Bertman /
1 March 2001
It was my first visit to Japan and my girlfriend kindly bought me a ticket to see my first Bon Jovi concert. I have now seen them twice after going to the first Wembley Concert last year as well. A concert in Japan is a lot different than a concert here. For a start there is no support act but who really cares about that? Despite the huge size of the Dome there was no general admission on the floor, everyone had seats. For this reason I think the Japanese concerts sufer slightly. It is hard to get the crowd going when they are all didvided by seats. Having said this the show was amazing. The band started with Rocking In The Free World, as soon as everyone heard Tico's drums they just started screaming. I have 2 of the Osaka Dome songs 'It's My Life' and 'Just Older' on CD-Rom (including the concert footage) and they are obviously a lot better than the versions they sung at Zurich. The band are more active too during the performances.
The high point of the concert was when millions of silver pieces of paper filled the dome during one of the songs.
The sound quality wasn't that great (like a lot of the tour I believe) but no one seemed to care, they knew the songs anyway, although when Jon made a speech I doubt that anyone understood it (I didn't and I am english).
Overall, better than Aerosmith at Wembley in 99 but not as good as Bon Jovi at Wembley in 2000. 9/10.
