REVIEW! Bon Jovi rocks Cape Town Stadium

40 000 people packed Cape Town stadium last night to see their rock heroes Bon Jovi live for the first time since 1995. It was an epic show. Kicking off Mark Haze and Elvis Blue warmed up the crowd and by the time the lights dimmed in the packed stadium, a little mayhem erupted as Bon Jovi stepped on the huge stage and the band ripped into their new songs and their classic hits. Bed of Roses, You Give Love A Bad Name, Bad Medicine, Living On A Prayer were greeted by screams and sing-alongs - something that took lead singer Jon Bon Jovi by surprise. He commented the whole time that he can't believe they waited so long to return to South Africa - yes Jon, it was a long wait, but worth every minute of your 2 and a half hour show. What The Beat liked the most was some of the cover versions worked into the set, like Status Quo's Rockin All Over The World. It was an epic show with great sound, great effects and an Bo Jovi crazy crowd. The band will perform at the FNB Stadium on Johannesburg on Saturday 11 May. (PS: To the lady who commented she hated the show, because Jon's teeth were to white - seriously? Get a life B*TCH!)
