The second night of Bon Jovi's 12 gig residency at the O2. Had a great seat (B1XX and fairly close to the stage) and some great company. Such great company that they decided not to bother seeing Kid Rock opening and catch up on the last couple months instead (sorry anyone who may want that). The recording is the complete Bon Jovi set, though, minus a minute or so of applause during the encore break where the taper started a new file on the recorder and had a quick word with the person he went with. Sound quality isn't brilliant since taper don't have a battery box. The semi-acoustic section is quite nice, though, and if anybody wants to do some filtering, feel free as long as you send a copy to the taper - he just don't have the time these days to play with it.

Also, Bon Jovi fans may want to go on Sunday, as David Bryan, the band's long time keyboardist, will be missing the gig to attend the Tony Awards in New York, as his show MEMPHIS is up for 8 awards, including Best Score and Best Musical. It should be an interesting gig to say the least, and in anticipation of it, Jon Bon Jovi recorded an intro at last night's performance at the start of the encores.
