16 June 2001 - Milton Keynes, England, UK Concert Review 18 June 2001
wow wow wow

A review by whoaa whoaaa

that was my frist bon jovi concert, which was near a good 8yrs in the making!!! Most definately greatest night of my life, richie was just phenomenal, jon was perfect, tico was crayz on the drums, david was havinga greta time and hugh smiled a few times!! hehe

OWN - brilliant start, loved the entarnce too! i think some ppl were expecting the 2001 version, but i prefer the original, so i wasnt complaining. This wasnt as loud as i expected, in volume, thankfully our hero richie headed backstage and sorted it out, so great start then... 9/10

raise yr hands - oh yeah, this really rocked, not many ppl recognised the osund staright away but al he 'older' afns did! every1 raised their hands and went wild to this, the boys gave it their all, a very polished song....9/10

u give love a bad name - thsi wasone of the best tracks on eh concert, they really blew the crowd away with this. richie's solo was awesome and they really had alot of hmph with this one..10/10

in these arms - i personal wish of mine this was, my girl's favoruite too, so they HAD to play it!! and they playe dit brillaintly, either tho i still htink it as more of a ballad then a rock song, its a bit of both...they played this very very well, brilliant stuff....9/10

its my life - whoaa song,powerful, explosive, it really was brialliant, the crowd sung each and very word...10/10

born to be my bay - yeah briallint song, really uptempo, i really did enjoy thsi song, handt herad it in ages...i htink richie went to have a glass of water during this one, and put some gum in his mouth!! hehe...really was powerul this, especially with every1 singing 'na na na na' at the start!..9/10

bed of roses - ahhhhhhhhhh...loved the piano start, really was agreta performance, really pulle dthe heartstrings...either hto, and im sorry, but that woman who came on stage was just too funny, how could any girls be jelaous of her!! knew this was scripted, especially the way she strutted off...back to the song, it was very emotional and very well sung...9/10

i got the girl - interesting osng this, down my end, whihc was right - when looking at the stage - i herad groans whne the song started...but really, i htink it was agreta performance, really souped up when jon told us about this dream he had, helped the fans take to the song more, and it was a greta fast, jumpy track...i do feel for jon tho, he wrote it for his daughter, and ppl dont like it, hahahaha...still shows how much he controsl the band, wonder if richie done the same, would it be on the album??? nope...8.5/10

captain crash & B Q from mars - thsi was classssssss, my honey is a beauty queen from mars so i really loev dthis!! its such a fun fun song, really good, and it was veyr well started when jon mentioned he 'saw tennis players, laywers,a nd captainn carshhhhh an dthe beautyyy queeeen from marssssssss' a very top song whne doen live...9/10

just olde r- one of my fave tracks from crush, this was really well sung, and he fans really got into it, sounded quite cowboy ish, espcially the solo, whihc i liked, actually the solo was slightly slower, which actually worked, greta song...9/10

lay your hands on me - absouloutelyy amazinggggg, tico rocked here he really did, he amost broke the drums in half!!! richie solo was nothing short of spectacular!!!..10/10
