Bon Jovi has returned to the stage for a 15-date tour that will take them through the Midwest and South. The first show kicked off April 1st in Omaha, and the band closed out their 2022 trek at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on April 30th.
The band has been performing since the early 1980s and is still going strong. They have been a mainstay in the rock music scene and their hits have crossed over into the mainstream. They have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and they continue to sell millions of albums. Their songs have touched on a variety of themes, including love, loss and family.
Their newer material tends to lean toward more pop-rock and less metal. They also understand that audiences come to see them perform the copper-bottomed smashes of their heyday, so their set list is packed with the holler-friendly choices from their benchmark 80s albums Slippery When Wet and New Jersey.
Aside from a couple of slow numbers, the rest of the night’s music was electric. Bon Jovi has a great rhythm section with bassist Hugh McDonald and drummer Tico Torres, and singer Jon Bon Jovi was on top form. He wore a black leather jacket with a bold zipper and a slicked back hairstyle that shouted rockstar.
He also stepped into the political commentary arena with songs such as “Bounce” which saluted New York’s post-Sept. 11 resilience and “Have a Nice Day” which urged tolerance.
Unlike some bands, Bon Jovi doesn’t rely on pyrotechnics or other stage effects to make their shows exciting. Instead, they are a band that can stand on their own with their impressive musical talent and charisma.
If you have never seen a live Bon Jovi performance, it is something that you should do. They are an iconic group that will have you singing along and dancing the night away. They are an American legend and their music will make you feel like you have been transported back in time to the 80’s.
