My wife is a HUGE Bon Jovi fan. Lets just say she would push me down a flight of stairs to get to the man lol. I have seen them 4-5 times back in the 80's when "Slippery when Wet" was out etc. Back when they were HUGE! My wife has wanted to see them for the 13 years we have been married but they have never come close. Well..... they are coming here on Oct 18th so needless to say we are going to see them.
Here is where the story gets messed up. General tickets went on sale on Aug 5th. I have American Express so I get to order my tickets a week earlier then everyone else. Tickets ranged from $34 - $165 so I knew we were going to get the $165 tickets without a doubt. The morning that the tickets went on sale they sent me a "special promotion" where we get to show up 4 hours early, reserved parking by the tour buses, get all kind of signed memorabilia, eat with the band, front row tickets, and too much other shit to even begin to list.
Tickets opened up at 10:00 am sharp and I hit the Special Promotion and reserved 2 front row seats. Ticket price..... Fucking $1301 per ticket. Now don't get me wrong... I like Bon Jovi and it's cool that you will know every song they play but Jesus Christ!!! Add to that Richie Sambora may or may not be playing with them.... man...
So If you're in Little Rock on Oct 18 at the concert you will most likely see my wife on the front row "flashing" Jon Bon Jovi the entire concert.
If they play this version I'll be cool with it all
