Shot Through The Heart


We had a blast. Concert was a great mix of old and new tunes. I had no idea I still remembered all the words to 'Living on a Prayer' until they played it and I was standing up singing it at the top of my lungs with 20,000 other people. FUN.

Really great show with awesome lighting and just loud enough that you could still turn to the person beside you and hear them say, "HOW AWESOME, eh?"

Bon Jovi must have an elixir of youth. I swear everytime he smiled the whole crowd went "WHOOOO HOOOO!"

HBSC Arena is a great venue. Clean and well laid out. We took a trolley from the hotel to the arena. I didn't bring my camera though! I was too ascairt to have it confiscated! I totally shouldn't have been. There must have been six million flashes going off all over the place during the concert.

I gotta say, the average age of the fans at the 'cert is kind of, older. Like, I would be medium rare old at 35 and the thousands of ladies screaming for Jon and Ritchie would be like, medium well old. Like about 45. With some great examples of 80's hair and fashions. Then there were younger people. But we all came together in our appreciation of solid rock n roll, baby. We were ONE, with our fists in the air singing, "Blaze of Glory". And "YOUR LOVE IS LIKE, BAAAD MEDICINE! BAD MEDICINE IS WHAT AH NEED!"

Don't judge it. You totally would have been there, too.
Jon played on a bunch of 'satellite' stages, little stages set up in the crowd. It was a riot to see ladies taking close up pictures of his butt with their cell phones when he turned around.

Jay kept saying how much Sam would like the concert. So wehn we got home we thought we would check ebay and see if there were any tickets being sold for any of the sold out conerts in Toronto this week. And there was! And we got a pair for HALF the price they would have cost us had we bought them direct! So he is taking Sam tonight. Sam is PUMPED.

My comedy gig went well. It was a pretty good sized crowd for a coffee house. I did a bit of new stuff and mostly old stuff. I didn't tape it, though. Didn't get the camera charged up in time.
Man, I gotta go. Gotta get sam off to school and I am babysitting all day today.

Rock on!

Sounded like you guys had a blast. It would have been awesome to see Bon Jovi. I wish they would come to Halifax again. I'm sure Sam will love it!

Ok... First off: I'll admit I haven't been reading your blog as much as I should be.


BON JOVI?! YOU WENT TO SEE BON JOVI?! Oh wow! How fun! I'm all sorts of jealous, and don't think I can come back and read your blog any more.

*goes off to add your blog to my links*

Oh, and glad your comedy gig went well! How could it not, lady? :)

I'm soooo jealous!!!!! I guess I could have made more of an effort to buy tickets...

Sounded like a fantastic show. I was glad to hear they were still able to play all the Toronto shows after the scary skid off the runway at Hamilton Airport Friday night!!!!! "Slippery when Wet" took on an entirely new meaning!!!

Yeah!! But I'm ascairt of 45 being described as "medium well - old" -- it doesn't seem as far away as it used to...! Ohhhhh, we're halfway there....
