Default Spring 1993 - the holy grail of BJ LIVE

In my opinion, the KTF tour was undoubtedly Bon Jovi's best tour ever. Jon was on fire in every single show, Richie was... well... Richie (f***ing incredible), the set lists were epic (pretty static in general, but full of goodies) - everything was pretty much perfect. Oh, how I wish I was around at this period:

Saw them in Helsinki, April 14th 1993. Was blown away, of course, my first rock show ever....had been fan since 1986...

BUT I'd still prefer Slippery or Syndicate show over this more matured KTF-Jovi!

Your "nickname" indicates you're Finnish. If that's the case, so am I.

PS. Here's the Copenhagen gig:

I also think 1993 had their best ever live shows. They were perhaps more polished on the TD tour but KTF was pure energy, effort and enjoyment. Those were my best ever Jovi gigs. Even better than Wembley '95

April/May 1993 were pretty much the peak of them - energy wise and also judged by Jon's vocals. The I'll Sleep When I'm Dead leg in the summer couldn't hold up to the early European shows though - they lost quite some momentum there.

I was at Milton Keynes 93 and it the best they've ever been and still my no 1 gig of all time - just pipping GNR at Wembley 91 with skid row and NIN.

Jovi were phenomenal from 93-2006 no one could touch them live or get close

I prefer 1995 (May - August), but 1993 was fantastic. I Believe worked so well as the opener, and I agree the energy was off the charts.
