It was an amazing show! Jon was having allergy issues I think, but he gave it his all and still put on an incredible energetic show!

It was a great show but this was my first and last GA show! Never again will I do that. I'll cough up the money for VIP or reserved before I do that again.

It was a great show. Seemed a little short compared to the timing of past shows but it was soooo hot. I don' think they could've tried any harder. Looked great but drenched in sweat. I didn't mind though.

I went to the show and I was very disappointed. I never thought the day would come that I would hear Bon jovi sing shout in the middle of bad medicine . I also expected to hear more of his more popular songs. The band sounded good, but his voice was awful, he couldn't seem to sing his own songs. It made me feel sad since I've been a huge fan since I was a kid.

Sorry you were disappointed.

I'm surprised you didn't expect to hear Shout in the middle of Bad Medicine since they've been doing that since 1989.

How many more popular songs did you need? If you've been a huge fan you'd be happy to have that setlist! And I think Jon was having allergy issues, mine flared up worse than normal after being up there for one day and I was up there for a total of 4 days.

Those going to "one off" shows expecting to be similar to the regular tour ones, will be disappointed. I was told by a friend that was there, that they started very late, because they were waiting for some VIPs to show up. I bet Jon was not happy with that, then the crowd was not very much into it at first, the hot weather, Jon's voice... several things not to make a perfect show, but I would have loved to be there regardless, you get Jovi while many others didn't and won't till the tour, be happy! ;-)

I was there and waited at the top of the hill for eight hours and then four + more after getting the best position possible with a ga ticket. It was hot but I loved the high energy show. They all looked great and worked hard in the extreme heat. I would do it again. Bad Medicine is often broken with a Shout cover. I was looking forward to it.

I have been to many Bon Jovi concerts and any fan that has been to any of their concerts would have been disappointed in the crowd. Not one person around me knew when to raise their hands, lyrics to the songs etc. Jon even seemed disappointed in the crowd reaction. Seemed short compared to arena shows but the heat and humidity were almost unbearable. I'm just thankful I got to go. They all looked and sounded great.

I'm from WV and to be honest I was shocked the crowd did as much as they did. I don't think Jon seemed disappointed but I wasn't up front to see all his facial expressions either. You've got to realize the last time these guys were here was in 1989 which was my first show. I think they gained alot of respect here from what i've heard people saying.

It was short; I saw the setlist on backstage and there were 17 songs (not including Shout and Old Time Rock & Roll which were part of Bad Medicine). I think the norm is about 20 to 22 - I know sometimes they play a few less and sometimes more. This wasn't a regular show though.

I think the reason for the crowd reaction might be that most people were probably there for the golf and not for Bon Jovi.
