Bon Jovi: Live 2011 in the Alamo City

We Weren't Born to Follow

Live, in the Alamo City…I had a blast at the Bon Jovi concert in San Antonio with my wife of 16 years, and our good friends, the Mills.
I had pretty high seats, so note to self: pay $10 more per seat. Note 2: buy concert t-shirts BEFORE the concert, not after.
Here are the songs from the set list. I was pleasantly surprised at the mix of new and old songs, although I really do not care for their 2009 or 2010 album material. I would rate this concert 5/5 stars, but if I rated it on a scale of A-F I would downgrade them to A-minus due to Richie Sambora slipping on a few riffs and the band focusing on their newer pop songs. San Antonio only got two songs in the encore, compared to most of the other cities that got four or six songs.
  1. Lost Highway
    1. 2007, Lost Highway
  2. “You give love a bad name”
