As I mentioned in my last post the celebrations started last weekend. The week before my boss handed me an envelope and told me to open it straight away. Inside was a birthday card and inside this was a ticket to go with her to see Bon Jovi the following weekend! Cue me screaming and very nearly crying!
Fast forward a week with me being only ever so excited to last Sunday, Because we Can day! We had seats so didn't need to leave early to queue up. We left a cloudy quite chilly Stamford and headed to Villa Park in Birmingham where Mr Sunshine came out to have a sing and dance too. Our seats were good with a great view of the stage
The stage was set to look like the front of a vintage American car, not a radio as I first thought when we sat down lol! As the night went on the video screen above the stage would change to look as though you were driving down the highway with the roof down.
This was my 6th time seeing them and I have to say they didn't disappoint. Mr Jon Bon was as gorgeous as ever and we sang and danced to a mix of new songs and the classics. The only downside was that there wasn't the same chemistry as normal. Richie has been missing from the tour, walked, quit, sacked no one knows, and replacement Richie as we called him wasn't the same. He had long curly hair and looked as though he should have been more at home in Metalica rather than Bon Jovi!
Love & hugs
