My inner rocker

I have been a country music fan for the past 15 years. Last night the inner rocker came right back out of hiding. Esmerelda and I went to see Bon Jovi at the Verizon Center in DC. We had a good time catching up, having a good brisk walk, people watching and singing along with Jon. I saw someone in their vintage Slippery When Wet t-shirt, I remember that from high school and I just had my 20 year reunion. The crowd was entertaing to watch--grandparents & grandkids, families, drunk college guys, lots of mid-30s to mid-40s folks and the librarian looking lady behind us totally rocking out!

Jon has definitely gotten better with age, Richie, not so much!

Here is the playlist from the show:
LOST HIGHWAY
BAD NAME
RAISE YOUR HANDS
RUNAWAY
CAPT. CRASH
SLEEP w/ Jumpin' Jack Flash
IN THESE ARMS
WHOLE LOT OF LEAVIN'
BORN TO BE MY BABY
BLAZE OF GLORY w/ Knockin' On Heaven's Door intro
WE GOT IT GOIN' ON
IT'S MY LIFE
BAD MEDICINE w/ Shout
STRANGER - RICHIE VOX(YOU WANT T0)
MAKE A MEMORY
I'LL BE THERE FOR YOU
BED OF ROSES
WHO SAYS YOU CAN'T GO HOME
HAVE A NICE DAY
FAITH
PRAYER

ENCORE:
WANTED
I LOVE THIS TOWN

Just really great music from 1983-present, there is a band with some staying power! Oh the memories some of those songs brought back. Obviously I haven't been to a concert in a really long time because the $60 t-shirts made me blanch!

I went to the concert too and nearly choked when I saw the prices of the tshirts!! How cool was it when he played songs in the crowd? I sure wish I was lucky enough to be sitting in THAT section! Jon has one lucky wife!!! :)
