Rocking Out With Bon Jovi Because We Can

20131214-234248.jpg

One of the best parts of working for a radio station is that we get the chance to go to fantastic concerts. Tonight was no exception. We took the day off and drove to Little Rock to see Bon Jovi’s Because We Can concert at Verizon Arena and wow what a performance!

The show was sold out and fans of all ages packed the arena. This was the first time that Jersey boy Jon Bon Jovi and his band had returned to North Little Rock in 20 years! It was fascinating to see teenagers rocking out just as hard as the parents and grandparents were. It was obvious that this band’s music has touched multiple generations with its incredible discography.

Yet for a group that has been around as long as Bon Jovi has been, they certainly didn’t appear to be any worse for wear. As Jon danced around the hydraulics-mechanized stage performing classic hits like ‘You Give Love A Bad Name’ and ‘Bad Medicine’ as well as newer tunes like our favorite, ‘Have A Nice Day,’ he appeared inexhaustible, making the women swoon and the men cheer just as he did in his youth.

We hadn’t been to a show this fun or fabulously staged since we saw Cher at the Nutter Center back in Ohio. When the show finally closed with ‘Living On A Prayer,’ we may have suffered some hearing loss, but we also felt like we had been transported back to our teen years when Bon Jovi’s music blared through the skating rink on Sunday nights. Even then, we were rocking out with the Jersey boy because we could.
