Bon Jovi - The Circle

Meadowlands Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey. 10 years ago, this was the brand new stadium for new Jersey and Bon Jovi's new home.

July 2010, saw three best friends travelling all the way to New jersey to see their favourite band, BON JOVI.

Having followed the band since their debut album (Bon Jovi) in 1984, this was a massive treat for all of us. And they did not disappoint. 

We spent four days in New York prior to the concert and lapped up all of the sites and tourist attractions, whilst consuming alcohol and gorging on the American food, from hamburgers to pancakes and American breakfast to  real steak burgers. Our apartment was in Manhattan and we hit the jackpot, it had everything on the doorstep, Dunkin' Donuts, Diner, Walk in beer store and bars etc.

Although we had had glorious weather, on the night of the concert it was quite thundery, with an amazing lightning storm. This was all well and good, but as it got closer to the main event, Bon Jovi, the announcement came over the PA System that they may have to cancel the gig, as the stadium is open air and they had safety worries because of the lightning.

A few prayers later from the boys and me and everything was set to go.

It was an amazing evening, I had seen them previously and a few times since. But this was the show of all shows.

And memories that Tony, Seamus and myself will have for the rest of our lives
