Probably Nashville 2017.

The video of the full show has been removed from YouTube, but Jon sounded SO bad... the setlist was pretty crap as well (WFTWM in the first half of the main set, BWC in the encore, and so on).

PS. And no, I wasn't there in person, but I could still tell from YT that it sucked ass.

Hull 06 has to be the worst. It was undersold, raining, had a terrible crowd and Jon was in the worst mood I've ever seen him in. He doesn't smile, look at the crowd and barely moves and considering this was in 2006 when he was relatively young makes it even worse.

The band are also sullen looking which adds weight to the rumour that Richie got news of his father's terminal illness prior to the show.

Skip to 3:16 for the moment Jon says "One more f*cking time" and rushes the end of Bad Medicine.

Everyone was like a statue and it was a make shfit venue outside of the parking deck. The whole thing was a mess!
Funny you mention the Miller Park show, I was there. It was also my least favorite Bon Jovi show. I remember reading that although it was a free show, they promised to do at least 20 songs but they only did 15 or 16. Completely vanilla set, which was expected, it was a free show after all.

I've told this story before but as the show ended I turned to the people I was with and comically mouthed WHAT THE **** WAS THAT really cartoonishly while in the second row and turned back to get a BIG stink eye from Jon. He knew the show was shit and was already in a foul mood.



The entire ride back we tore the show apart haha.


Holy cow, forgot about this one! The flies and the heat! Yea that was another bad one!! Memories lol!

I think Hull really takes the crown, simply because it was not down to health or other circumstances, but the band simply don't giving a **** about the gig (especially Jon) and completely disrespecting their audience.

Though that 2013 gig (was it Saratoga?) that had been billed as a normal tour concert and ended up being Jon playing with his KOS friends probably would've put me over the edge, had I been there.

I was in the boonies for that one but yes it was free so I had no expectation. I put too much into the casino show because it was my birthday!

I don't think I remember this as the worst show - but in retrospect it is right up there.

And Seb's comment about Meadowlands night 4 was spot on - we all came home from that and we were depressed. It was such a downer.

The difference about the shows in 2010/11 was that the general level was good, but when they were off, they were really off.

Like Penn State university in 2011. Not a single song in the broadcast was done without mistakes, they even forgot the solo in Make A Memory. After the previous show had been in Sydney two months prior, it seemed like the nightmare of nightmares.

C'mon guys. Put videos up to go alongside the bad shows that are referred to. It's far more interactive then

I was at both shows (and Jakarta, Bangkok) on that tour and wasn't under the same impression.
