If my mind serves me right, it was the following show that Jon injured his leg. I saw the Horsens, Denmark show as well four days after Oslo and it just wasn't the same. I remember Jon got on stage with a crutch, opening the show with Lost Highway. Kind of knew there and then that it would be a very different show.
Jon obviously got up to shape quite soon and ended the Europe run on a high. A real shame for the Denmark show, seeing the Oslo show just four days prior one can't help but wonder what that show could have been with a fit Jon.

But just look at that Oslo set list! Is this the only time the band hasn't played a single song from Lost Highway since its release?

2010-11 will always have a special place in my heart. I'm sure everyone who was on the board back then will agree with me, it was such a treat to follow all the PBPs and wait for all the Youtube clips. Things never really got the same. Even though I will always love and follow Bon Jovi, it has never been the same for me since that evening in Lisbon 2011.

This was my first time seeing Bon Jovi. Only time with Richie. Still on my top 3 list off all the shows of any artists I have seen.
My top 3 list:
1 Springsteen Oslo 2012
2 Pearl Jam Oslo 2014
3 Bon Jovi Oslo 2011
