I see Bon Jovi is in San Jose tomorrow. i would love to go again but it is a long drive. I saw them in San Jose before when I lived in the Bay Area and they were great.

Oh you're breaking my heart! It's JON Bon Jovi (no "H") and I think Bon Jovi soared the highest with their release of Slippery When Wet in the mid 80's (1986, I just looked it up) followed by New Jersey right before I graduated in '88!
Oh I love BJB! I even married myself a Jon
PS Glad you had fun at the concert, even if you were a little soar... my last Bon Jovi concert - his Have a Nice Day tour - in Pittsburgh, I had really sucky seats... but didnt stop me from screaming my voice away!
I love Chris.
OK, seriously now.... They started off with a new song that was really good. Only played for 45 minutes, though. But those 45 minutes were really great! They worked Walk the Line, Home Sweet Home and Hey Man, Nice Shot into their songs. Very nicely done. And while they did have screens with video camera images from the show up so us poor saps in the back could actually see...I also had a really good view of Chris from the rear.
Bon Jovi were tight. The crowd was really into it. We didn't end up staying for the whole show because the up in the rafter seats are really hard on a person's back, and Earl was really hurting.
But I also realized/remembered something tonight. I don't really like Bon Jovi. (Sorry!) When 7800 F came out, I was into Motley Crue and Twisted Sister. When Slippery When Wet came out, I was into Metallica and Megadeth and less than a year later, Guns N Roses. Bon Jovi is just too smiley for me.
