Went up to Giants Stadium tonight here in Jersey for the first of 3 sold out Bon Jovi concerts. I get there, it's hot as all hell. Over 100 degrees. I sit down and relax in the seat...long day at work. Check the watch...still a good hour and a half to two hours until Bon Jovi comes on. About 15 min. later the opening act came on. Didn't know who was opening. Turns out it was this band called Nickleback. First off, they sounded terrible. Maybe it was their mic setup, but they were really really bad. Secondly, every single song sounded just like the others. WTF? Did they just write the music for one song, and change the lyrics each time? Anyways, I couldn't take it anymore, and just walked around the concourse with my friend until they were off. Finally around 8:15 the real band came on. Bon Jovi rocked hard all night. Top of their game for the first night back home. Pulled out a few gems that haven't been played in quite a few years. Only downside was the encore was cut short because the "Perfect Storm" was going on for the entire 2nd half of the show. We were literally watching the bolts of lightning in the sky instead of the lightshow on the stage. Got a little wet, but was mostly cover in my seat. Anywho, that was my night. Now I can't wait for the 29th to see em again for the final show at Giants Stadium. This time I'll get there a little later to avoid Nickelback.
