Whenever I hear any Bon Jovi songs I'm reminded almost daily that we attended a Bon Jovi concert on Saturday 6th July 1996. The concert with the Milton Keynes Superbowl was at the end from the mammoth Today tour that going on 26th April 1995 with the Andheri Stadium Bombay, India and ended on 19th July 1996 at the Helsinki Olympic Stadium.
It took my boyfriend and myself over Three hours they are driving to Milton Keynes and that we had to queue for 4 hours until 2pm to buy the Superbowl. It had been some of those quirky English weather days, about a minute ab muscles hot sun was beating upon us and the next there was torrential freezing cold rain.
Once we got into the world we had been able to dig up an area at the front in the stage but because more fans arrived and blocked us in I came to be claustrophobic and worried that we may not be capable of escape towards the loo throughout the next 8 hours. I left Mark hugging the leading from the stage and escaped to sit down with a hillock where I got a pretty good look at the proceedings because the support bands Seven, Gun and Joan Osborne performed.
The most memorable being Joan Osbornes performance, she was great but the weather was quirky also it became pretty uncomfortable on grass while soaked on the skin. I wandered round for a couple of hours and have become more uncomfortable as being a bloke took an elegant in my opinion and began to harass me despite being told that we was with my boyfriend.
Seeing my discomfort several Bon Jovi fans told the bloke to depart me alone and inquired about to participate them. Which was lucky to me by 50 percent ways, one which it eliminated my stalker and yet another because we had been in a marvellous position to look at the show, close to the stage but right - out of the main crush of fans.
It had been ahead of 7.00pm and I was feeling tired, very wet and shivering through the cold. I couldn't are already wetter if I had stood within a pool fully clothed. As I tried to warm my chances are numb blue hands I was miserably wishing that I hadn't opted for navigate to the concert.
A short while later a helicopter arrived and very quickly afterwards I could see the group climbing inside the steps concise. Used to a double take at seeing Jon, he was put on a tight tan leather jumpsuit which gave the opinion of him being naked from a distance.
This guitar rock band roared to life and then for Couple of hours my discomfort was forgotten as Bon Jovi launched in a string of the hits including Always, It's My Life, You provide Love An undesirable Name, Someday I'll Be A Saturday Night and my long time favourite Living On A Prayer.
Visualize a sea well over 60,000 fans joining along with the choruses, swaying, waving and punching the air together. It absolutely was a magnificent sight off and on stage as Bon Jovi rocked the Superbowl. I had been enthralled together with the bands performance and stirred with the music along with the interaction from your crowd.
I felt disappointed when a fireworks display ended the magnificent performance 2 hours on, but afterwards Bon Jovi reappeared to have an air punching encore to round over show. I had been still very wet and cold but warmed by way of a magnificent performance in the entire band. I absolutely recommend seeing Bon Jovi together and despite my discomfort I'd go through it yet again - it had been worthwhile.
I am watching videos from the 2008 Lost Highway tour and believe Jon Bon Jovi has still got what can be done. Bon Jovi are a good band and 12 years on We are still a huge fan of Bon Jovi songs and hope which i get a chance to see them together again, but perhaps an inside concert!
P.S. Regarding my boyfriend I dumped him following your show. I do not rate some guy that lets a female he's meant to love wander off by themselves all day within a strange place as well as in a 60,000 plus crowd. He cared more about obtaining a place towards the stage than my safety. I probably ended up with an improved view than he did and i also surely could go to the loo once i wanted!
