Bon Jovi Rocks Pittsburgh ‘Because They Can’

Last night AEG Live brought Bon Jovi back to Pittsburgh on their “Because We Can Tour” to a sold out Consol Energy Center. Performing on an open style stage, Jon Bon Jovi got the party started immediately by opening with their smash hit, “You Give Love a Bad Name”. The crowd was overly enthusiastic and primed when the band hit the stage at 8:10 pm and the band certainly reacted in turn. With a large majority of the crowd appearing to be loyalists since the bands inception in 1983, it was interesting to see their reaction to tunes both classic and ‘not so classic’. The fever pitch seemed to never wane for the Steel City audience. Bon Jovi is on the early leg of their world tour in support of their new album, What About Now, which will be released on March 12, 2013. The tour will started in February and will visit North America, Europe, Africa, the Far East, Australia and Latin America.
