Bon Jovi @ Arena, 4/23/13

1 of 54



Your mom wants to go see Bon Jovi in Glendale. Other people too -- don't get me wrong. Former hair-metal aficionados, air-guitar soloists, a surprising number of people in what appear to be Bon Jovi football jerseys. But mostly your mom.

Having successfully finished raising you and come into a little extra empty-nester income, she wants nothing more than to head out to Arena, maybe do a little upscale outlet shopping, and then watch Jon Bon Jovi sing and dance for three hours. And based on how things turned out on Tuesday, I can't blame her.

Because Bon Jovi is astoundingly good, by now, at being Bon Jovi. Read the full review of Bon Jovi by Dan Moore.
