Yeah, they were the highlights. Santa Fe was the first time it's ever been played.

The rest was pretty mundane. Way too many albums completely overlooked. Five albums with nothing from them played in 2.5 hours is ridiculous. And far too many anonymous tracks from Lost Highway and The Circle.

The arrows (>) make it look like it might be a medley-type thing.

Kid Rocks setlist looks like crap. No Bawitaba or American Badass. He better change it when he comes here.

Jeez, for being as long as it is, compared to a lot of other shows I've seen the sets for, that Bon Jovi set blows.

To be perfectly honest, with a couple of exceptions, like the night they did Dry County, I think this is as good as any other set they've played because the tracks that make it suck, like Who Says You Can't Go Home, Superman Tonight, Story of My Life, When We Were Beautiful etc. they either play every night, or play something equally bad from those albums in their place.

The only tracks I want to hear live from Lost Highway and The Circle are We Got It Goin' On, Bullet and Work For The Working Man.

Other than that, I think it's ridiculous that at this stage in their career they choose to play sets that completely ignore five whole albums. This set has nothing from the first two, These Days, Bounce or Have A Nice Day. These Days and Bounce being particularly annoying omissions.

But the general, major problem with their sets is there's no momentum. They'll play a track that gets everyone on their feet and clapping, then follow it with something completely mundane and everyone sits down again. The sets aren't well constructed at all.

However, I do think it's cool that they've set themselves a target of playing 70 different songs across the 12 London shows, and I wouldn't be surprised if sometime later this year a box set emerges containing one recording each of all 70. I'd buy it.

On Kid Rock, yes ordinarily a set without Bawitdaba and American Badass is a complete failure, but for a Bon Jovi crowd, especially a current Bon Jovi crowd who are all bought into shit like Lost Highway and The Circle, he did exactly the right thing and was very, very well received. It was a bit a of sell-out set, but he's certainly done enough to get people to go see him when he tours on his own with the new album.
