JBJ knows it ("To stand on stage for two hours with a halfway working voice"). I had a GREAT time in the South American shows. The song that I enjoyed most was Keep The Faith and of course Spanish Cama de Rosas -_- and many more like Saturday Night (electric), etc. Believe me, KTF still sounds AWESOME!!! I love this song and to close the concerts with this song like the old days was PERFECT!!! There was an improvement...

Did you not like even the Sao Paulo show this year? I thought it was amazing for 2017, and (energy- and passion-wise) even comparable to 2010-11. Vocally it was still pretty rough, but not nearly as awful as most of Jon's post-early '13 concerts and on some songs (Bed Of Roses, Saturday Night, the second half of Bad Medicine, most of KTF, the first chorus of Always, the last chorus of These Days) his vocals were even good (by '17 standards of course).

I do enjoy his voice more now than I did on the 2015 tour, but I do not exactly know why. I think the reason why the BB tour from 2015 sounded like a disaster for me is because when i thought of Bon Jovi I thought of Jon with his 2008-2011 vocals but when actually seeing the shows he sounded nothing like that anymore...so yea.

If they come to Europe I will definitely go and see them and have the greatest fkin time of my life, no doubt.


Talking about Jon's raspy voice, this is one of my favorite moments from the 2010s. That "Take those old records off the shelf" sounds great.

He's 2/10 for me. Jon doesn't only have issues with his voice but also with his confidence and passion. But after the last leg, he's rejuvenated. The confidence was suprisingly high and same goes to the passion too. This is something that I haven't seen since RS left so my praises to Jon. But as I replay the performances during that SA leg, it's very clear that he's driving himself further. Yeah it's the last 2 shows anyway but it could lead to a very rapid decline if done more often. He's still struggling to sustain high and long notes without cracking his voice. But I really hope that Jon will prove us wrong again nexy year because this is something that he's good at.

This one is like a cheer up performance. Hearing him getting the crowd alive with the classic "Oh yeeeeaaaahhh" was damn painful. But Jon makes up for it by a lively and raspy second verse. AND THIS WAS BACK IN 2015.

Alright, kids - there we have another proof of Jon's vocal inconsistency. His voice is clearly still there, but his self-confidence needs work.

Speaking of that, I'd like to show you something that's - at least as far as I'm aware of - probably Jon's last consistent (+ good) vocal performance of any song in concert. It's not the Greenville '17 version of Always (which was definitely above expectations, but still not nearly as good as I would've hoped for based on the amount of positive reviews here), it's not the Sao Paulo '17 version of Bed Of Roses, it's not even the Milan '13 version of This Ain't A Love Song (which I once claimed it to be)... instead of those, it's this version of These Days:

I mean, this was in July 2013. How the hell Jon was able to hit shitloads of high B's perfectly on that song and then struggle his way through something like Captain Crash (a very easy song that he had quite a bit of trouble with back in mid-'13 already) is beyond me. It's really, really, really confusing.
