Bon Jovi To Take Stage Sunday At Bamboozle, What Do You Want To Hear?

Bamboozle takes over Asbury Park this weekend, marking the tenth anniversary of the three-day festival. The popularity of Bamboozle has skyrocketed over the years and the headliners on each day are sure to please the masses. Bands like Incubus, The Foo Fighters and The Gaslight Anthem are sure to be received greatly, but perhaps the biggest of them all comes Sunday night when Bon Jovi takes the stage. Love ’em or hate ’em, Bon Jovi knows how to put on a concert, and what better place to do it than right here in Asbury Park.

You know you’re going to hear the classics. “Livin’ On A Prayer”, “You Give Love A Bad Name” and “It’s My Life” will no doubt be sung loudly and proudly by fellow New Jerseyans in the crowd. But what else can we expect?

I had a chance to see Bon Jovi in Foxboro, MA two summers ago when they were touring for their album, ‘The Circle’. Take a look at the setlist I got, courtesy of

“Blood on Blood”
“We Weren’t Born to Follow”
“You Give Love a Bad Name”
“Born to Be My Baby”
“Lost Highway”
“In These Arms”
“It’s My Life”
“I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead”
“We Got It Goin’ On”
“Bad Medicine”
“Old Time Rock n’ Roll” Bob Seger cover
“Lay Your Hands on Me”
“Bed of Roses”
“I’ll Be There For You”
“Someday I’ll Be Saturday Night”
“When We Were Beautiful”
“Work for the Working Man”
“Have a Nice Day”
“Who Says You Can’t Go Home”
“Keep the Faith”
“Wanted Dead or Alive”
“I Love This Town”
“Livin’ On A Prayer”

Keep in mind, this was to promote a new album, which they’re not doing this time around. Some of the songs I heard were played strictly because they were new at the time, not because they were any good. You probably won’t hear “Work For The Working Man” or “When We Were Beautiful”. If you’re asking me for a prediction, expect a lot of their big hits, that slightly annoying country song: “Who Says You Can’t Go Home”, and a lot of covers.
