Bon Jovi Rocks Saprissa Stadium

September 28, 2010

Jon Bon Jovi plays to an audience of 20,000 screaming fans during his concert last Sunday at Ricardo Saprissa Stadium in Tibás, north of San José. The legendary hard rocker from the U.S. state of New Jersey stomped, twisted and thrust his way through a two-hour set that fused the lustful, the sentimental and the disgruntled, as part of the group’s 2010-2011 The Circle Tour. From the sinful sounds of “Bad Medicine” to the blue-collar overtones of “Livin’ on a Prayer,” fans bellowed out the lyrics as Bon Jovi twirled his black Takamine acoustic guitar. The group inspired with classics such as “Wanted Dead or Alive” and “Faith,” and rolled out new hits like “Work for the Working Man” and “We Weren’t Born to Follow” from its most recent album, “The Circle.” After a 120-minute, high-octane performance, the rock stars eased into the finale. Tears streamed and mascara ran as the group closed with the potent words of its cherished love ballad, “Always.” – Mike McDonald
