"My brother Pablo gave me this DVD on my birthday last year. I never was fan of "Bon Jovi", I was always a "KISS" fan. But I thought maybe I should give these guys a chance. I gave 'em, I ended up loving 'em. These guys are really talented. I like their music. You should buy this one. It's a great DVD from BON JOVI:
1.- "Intro".- Nothin' special about the intro.
2.- "Livin' On A Prayer".- Now here is where the concert really starts. I think this song is perfect for an intro and I also think this is one of their best songs they wrote.- 10/10.
3.- "You Give Love A Bad Name".- Another one of their best songs. I like the chorus.- 10/10.
4.- "Captain Crash & The Beauty Queen From Mars".- Another masterpiece from this band. I love this one. Has a great guitar intro.- 10/10.
5.- "Say It Isn't So".- I think this one is one of my favorite songs EVER. I love this one.- 10/10.
6.- "One Wild Night".- Even another classic song from these guys. This one is a wild one.- 10/10.
7.- "Born To Be My Baby".- I like it. But not as much as "Say It Isn't so" or "One Wild Night".- 8/10.
8.- "It My Life".- The very first song I heard from this band. A perfect first impression.- 10/10.
9.- "Bed of Roses".- Great. Fantastic. One of my all-time favorite's. Very romantic.- 10/10.
10.- "Two Story Town".- Good. I like it.- 9/10.
11.- "Just Older".- One of my favorite's from this band. I like it as much as "You Give Love A Bad Name".- 10/10.
12.- "Runaway".- Super. I loved it.- 10/10.
13.- "Lay Your Hands On Me".- Another classic song from BON JOVI. I love this one.- 9/10.
14.- "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead".- One of my favorite rock and roll songs.- 10/10.
15.- "Bad Medicine".- Another classic from BON JOVI and one of my all-time favorite's.- 10/10.
16.- "Wanted Dead Or Alive".- One of my favorite's. I love acoustic songs.- 10/10.
17.- "I'll Be There For You".- I like this one too. Another acoustic act.- 10/10.
18.- "Next 100 Years".- Another classic.- 10/10.
19.- "Someday I'll Be Saturday Night".- Another acoustic act. I always enjoy this song.- 10/10.
20.- "Keep The Faith".- A great outro for an explosive concert. I like this one too.- 9/10.
21.- "Credits (Background Music: "Thank You For loving Me").- I gotta be honest. I think the song "Thank You For Loving Me" is the best from BON JOVI. I wanted to be a live song they play on this concert. But at least it is on the concert.
There you go. I suggest you buy it now. If you are planning to buy from amazon.com, I suggest you buy it now for there are only 1 left in stock.
BON JOVI RULES!!!!!!!!!!!"
BEST BON JOVI CONCERT EVER

"If you are a Bon Jovi fan and you have a DVD then this is the concert that you should buy. The concert star with two classics. "Living on a Prayer" and "You Give Love a Bad Name". After that be prepared to see a lot of awesome songs like "Say it Isn't So", "Born to be my Baby", "It's my Life" and many, many more. The best songs of the concert are "Bed of Roses", "Lay your Hands on me". The duo that Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambore made with "Wanted Dead or Alive" and "I'll be There for You" are outstanding. After see the concet you have extras like behind the concert, two music videos, pictures and discography. If you like Bon Jovi and you would like to have a great concert on your DVD collection, the this is the one you have to get. BUY THIS DVD"
They still know how to do it!

"The first live concert I went to was a Bon Jovi show. It was the final stop on their US Slippery When Wet tour (Honolulu). I had gone to keep a friend company. Needless to say, I was hooked, and a die hard fan ever since. Aside from "An Evening With Bon Jovi", which was more of a toned-down, MTV affair, I have been waiting for years for the definitive Bon Jovi live video. The wait is over!The guys cover most of their biggest hits, as well as some of their future hits too. I was reading an interview with Richie Sambora, and he had said that they don't really rehearse for tours anymore. For the Crush tour, they rehearsed a total of four (4!) days. From watching this vid, you can tell that these guys define the term 'Road Warriors'. Each knows how to work the crowd, and they always know where the others are and what they are doing. True professionals. As I watched the opening number, 'Living on a Prayer', I couldn't believe that it's been almost fifteen years since this song was released. It has stood the test of time. Their other songs are just as timeless, if not moreso. "Wanted.." is to my generation what "Stairway to Heaven" is to the generation before mine...a bookmark for a period in our lives when all did was play air guitar and rock out.Granted, the boys aren't as youthful as I remember them. In "Wanted Dead or Alive", Jon reminds me more of Woody from Toy Story than a road-weary rocker, but I think that serves as a testament to their longevity more than to hurt their credibility. Aside from Aerosmith and the Rolling Stones, can you name another band that has gone out and toured and toured for almost two decades? (The Eagles don't count because they only did it once, and solely for the money.)As for the disc itself, I was impressed with the video quality, and the editing. The director was able to catch the electricity of being front row center at a Bon Jovi concert, while also allowing us to see what goes on backstage, behind the drum riser, behind the keyboards, etc. This concert is in letterboxed format, and overall color and transfer is excellent.The audio is Dolby Digital 5.1, although it seems as though the disc defaults to Dolby Surround 2.0. The 5.1 presentation is very good, putting you in the center of the crowd. It is laid out with the vocals taking center channel, guitar mid-left, and keyboards mid-right along with upper-range bass guitar. The crowd noise takes the rear surrounds along with ambient noise from the stage. The sound on this disc blends so well, that it's a case of "close your eyes....you're there".The extras on this disc are comprised of a 30-minute behind the scenes, and the videos for "It's My Life" and "Say It Isn't So". As a sidenote, Bon Jovi pioneered the concert performance video back in the 80s. They were damn good at it. I just wished that they could have stayed with the formula for these two videos, which do contain live performance footage, but only against the backdrop of other action in the video. But I digress...Bottom Line: If you are a die hard BJ fan, this decision is a no-brainer. If you enjoy high-energy stage shows with lots of audience participation, familiar hits, and gobs of nostalgia, drop the Andrew Jackson and pick this disc up."
Best Bon Jovi DVD Ever!

"Some time ago, I was at a local Hollywood Video and I saw BON JOVI: LIVE FROM LONDON! on the shelf. I had to rent it. It was good but was short and could have been better. When I found out there was going to be a new BON JOVI live video, I freaked, but was skeptical about if had all the good songs. I found out on the internet and got it. It rules. An 80,000 people sold-out stadium. Best performances: "Lay Your Hands on Me", "Sleep When I'm Dead", and "Say It Isn't So". But I wish they had "This Ain't a Love Song", and "Never Say Goodbye." Buy this DVD."
Incredible Live Performance

"I own this dvd and have watched it many times in Dolby surround sound. I can't watch it enough. The quality of this dvd is great. I was at the show in Nov. at the Forum in LA and even though there is nothing like a live performance, this dvd was the closest thing to being there. These guys put on one heck of a show. They still can rock. For any die hard BonJovi fans, and even the casual fan, I highly recommend this. You wont regret it. The 30 minutes of interview and backstage stuff is great. There are also 2 videos from the Crush CD, including one not released yet."
