Whenever I hear any Bon Jovi songs I will be reminded of that time period which i went to a Bon Jovi concert on Saturday 6th July 1996. The concert on the Milton Keynes Superbowl was at the end from the mammoth Nowadays tour that going on 26th April 1995 in the Andheri Stadium Bombay, India and ended on 19th July 1996 in the Helsinki Olympic Stadium.

It took my boyfriend and myself over Three hours they are driving to Milton Keynes and we were required to queue for 4 hours until 2pm to get involved with the Superbowl. It was one particular quirky English weather days, 60 seconds or so ab muscles hot sun was beating recorded on us and subsequently there were torrential freezing cold rain.

When we had the arena we had been able to find a spot in front with the stage speculate more fans arrived and blocked us in I came to be claustrophobic and worried which i couldn't survive able to escape towards the loo through the next 8 hours. I left Mark hugging leading in the stage and escaped to sit with a hillock where I got a great take a look at the proceedings because the support bands Seven, Gun and Joan Osborne performed.

The wedding being Joan Osbornes performance, she was great though the weather had been quirky and yes it became pretty uncomfortable looking at grass while soaked towards the skin. I wandered round for some hours and became more uncomfortable as being a bloke took a fancy in my opinion and started to harass me despite being told which i was with my boyfriend.

Seeing my discomfort a small grouping of Bon Jovi fans told the bloke to leave me alone and talked about to join them. That's lucky personally by 50 percent ways, the one that it eradicated my stalker and the other because we had arrived inside a marvellous position to look at the show, close to the stage but right - from the main crush of fans.

It had been just before 7.00pm and that i was feeling tired, very wet and shivering from your cold. I could not are already wetter basically had stood inside a pool fully clothed. Because i attempted to warm my at this point numb blue hands I used to be miserably wishing i hadn't consented to visit the concert.

A few minutes later a helicopter arrived and very soon afterwards I could see the group climbing in the steps concise. Used to do a double take at seeing Jon, he was wearing a strong tan leather jumpsuit which gave the opinion of him being naked from your distance.

The group fired up and for 2 hours my discomfort was forgotten as Bon Jovi launched right into a string with their hits including Always, It's My well being, You provide Love An undesirable Name, Someday I shall be A Saturday Night and my while favourite Living On A Prayer.

Make a sea that could reach over 60,000 fans joining within the choruses, swaying, waving and punching the air together. It was an extraordinary sight don and doff stage as Bon Jovi rocked the Superbowl. I had been enthralled with all the bands performance and stirred by the music along with the interaction from the crowd.

I felt disappointed when a fireworks display ended the magnificent performance A couple of hours on, but afterwards Bon Jovi reappeared on an air punching encore to round off of the show. I was still very wet and cold but warmed by the magnificent performance from the entire band. I absolutely recommend seeing Bon Jovi together and despite my discomfort I'd personally go through it yet again - it had been worth the cost.

I have been watching videos from the 2008 Lost Highway tour and believe Jon Bon Jovi has still got what can be done. Bon Jovi make the perfect band and 12 years on I will be still a big fan of Bon Jovi songs and hope i get a chance to determine them together again, but perhaps an internal concert!

P.S. For my boyfriend I dumped him as soon as the show. I do not rate someone that lets a lady he or she is meant to care about wander away automatically for hours within a strange place along with a 60,000 plus crowd. He cared a little more about receiving a place towards the stage than my safety. I probably wound up with a better view than he did and that i was able to navigate to the loo after i wanted!
