Typical Bon Jovi concert with mostly expected set list. Some new songs mixed in as one would expect. Vocals didn’t seem as strong and were limited to Jon and the crowd. We were on the side along what would be the boards at a hockey game and it was very hard to see. Seats were facing straight but he was at one end of the Garden with no screens at all. So best case was all you could see was a glow of lights on the band, worst case -and it was most of the concert- you just could not get an angle to view the stage. First concert I have ever been too with no screens to display the performers at all!!!! May have cost them some seating but would have helped.

Wow... Would give it a 0 stars if it was a option...Where do I begin -- not much good here. The band was off all night.. missed their marks. Guitar solos were the same runs over and over . Tempo all over the place. Richie is sorely missed. The mix was horrible -- though intentional to cover the fact the Bon Jovie can no longer sing -- does not have near the range to cover these songs anymore. The song set list seemed to also be based on the fact the he can no longer sing -- hits were cased aside for slower, lower register based songs he could handle but nobody knew. Bon jovie can still work the crowd -- but can't deliver the goods. It was a night where I sat on the edge of my seat waiting for something good to happen -- needless to say it never did. Save your money sit this one out -- think it is downhill from here...

SELF SERVING TRIPE
The shows setlist was terrible and I assume that it's because unfortantely Jon's voice has deteriorated so bad that he has to pick the list from the songs he can kinda sing. He consistently had the band take over the high parts or turned the mic to the crowd to sing. His stage presence was weird with him constantly flashing a weird uncomfortable smile. I really wanted to like it because my last time to see the group was in 1985, but at this point it seems he is only doing it to feed his ego because he sure doesn't need the money.

FLEW IN TO SEE THE SHOW
We are huge Bon Jovi fans...and we were super excited to see the Show. We flew in from Oregon. We grew up listening to the band and it has been on our bucket list for a long time. We listened to the hits in our hotel room, got to the show early and biught the merch, and we had amazing seats. The show itself though was a disappointment. The biggest issue is we couldn't really Jon's voice, maybe the sound on his mic was to low but until he did a ballad you could barely hear him. Second the set had a lot of songs that must be newer and not their traditional hit catalog...totally get the need to put out on new music but for a tour I think it would have been more fan favs. We kept wanting to love the show and stayed till almost the end...but we left early. Still love Bon Jovi but just not this performance.

DISAPPOINTING PERFORMANCE BY BON JOVI
Could hardly hear Bon Jovi’s voice. Don’t know if it was the microphone, but could hear the vocals of the opening act just fine. He seemed offbeat and off note at times as well. Some of the hits were missing. Why?. I always rate a performance by whether I would see it again or recommend it to a friend. In this case the answer to both is no.
