    I thought I was taking my family to see a Bon Jovi concert last night.
    Instead I saw 9 cover songs by a bar band from New Jersey (some which Jon Bon Jovi sang and some of which he wasn’t on stage for) and 3 solo accoustic songs by Jon.
    The rest of the Bon Jovi band wasn’t even on stage for half the show.
    It was completely different than the Gillette Stadium setlist from 2 nights ago.
    Richie Sambora wouldn’t have put up with that nonsense. Violin solo? Really?

  2. Oates77 says

    I find it very interesting that Bon Jovi went back to a pure Bon Jovi setlist at Darien Lake after the disaster of Saratoga. Especially given that Jon’s brother Matt tweeted that it was a 2-night thing and “not the new norm”. The experiment of Saratoga failed and we got screwed.
    Can I get my $250 back? I paid $500 for my family to attend, and the Bon Jovi band was on stage for half the show and some lounge act was on for the other half. A half refund seems fair.
