Actually Bon Jovi has 2 shows in Tokyo, an April 8th & 9th show. This review is for the April 8th show. Bon Jovi flew in and kicked off their Japan Tour by absolutely rock'n Tokyo!!! Nearly 60,000 fans were packed inside a sold out Tokyo Dome and Bon Jovi delivered a show of epic proportions!! It all started with band emerging from behind what is normally home plate and running all the way through 30,000 fans to get to the stage that was set up in deep center field. The crowd went wild and stayed that way through the last song. Nothing like hearing 60,000 Japanese singing at the top of their voices along with JBJ, who did a great job orchestrating the crowd's involvement. Richie played well as always, despite having a bum left shoulder that required him to keep his elbow at his side at all times. Tico was especially fired up and played with incredible energy. It was a show for the ages that continued the 22 year tradition of Bon Jovi rock'n in Japan.
