You may or may not have heard that Bon Jovi did a free concert at Central Park yesterday. Well, I was there, and it was pretty damn awesome! Two of us from Deadly Computer were there, and one of my friends came too. We got there at 1:30pm, and then waited till 8pm for the show to start. We didn’t even get into the park till a little after 3pm. When we got there, we kinda pissed off the two girls sitting behind us, but after a few minutes we made up, and became friends. Which was good because for 5 hours you need some people to talk to.
One of their names was Laura, and I don’t think I ever got the name of the other one. Oh well. I told her to come visit the site, hopefully she will. Laura if you do, please post a comment I’d love to hear from you.
Now, as for the concert the only bad thing about it was the 10pm curfew, which was part of the agreement with NYC. Because of that, they didn’t play nearly as many songs as I was hoping for. But from what I remember, they did these songs in some order which i forgot: Runaway, It’s My Life, Who Says You Can’t Go Home, Have A Nice Day, I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead, Whole Lot of Leavin’, We Got it Going On, Bad Medicine, Born To Be My Baby, Wanted Dead or Alive and probably some others i forgot.
Whoever was in charge of the video was doing a very, very awesome job at it. The directing was amazing, beautiful, and just a work of art. The screen was super high res (from where we were anyway), and beautiful. The lights behind the stage were choreographed great too. I wish I remember what song had the Hearts behind it, because that was good, but i don’t sorry.
They opened with Livin’ on a Prayer, and closed with I Love This Town. I managed to take many, many photos, but lots came out blurry, and the rest were mostly the same. I’ve collected the 40 or so of my favorites in this album.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from that group below:

Again, there’s like 40 or so photos over in the album, and in total I took alot, but again some didn’t come out well, and others all looked the same.
