A playlist of an upcoming channel;
And Bon Jovi’s rise to fame!
I’ve already written a post about theย  1986 Japan leg of the Slippery When Wet Tour,ย 
but there was simply so much to explore.
So with today, the 20th, being a day where we do not have a pre-1997 full concert recording, but only two single recordings for Yokohama, 1986, both exclusively uploaded by the FighterBJ channel*, I went through the rabbit hole and dived into this amazing time in Bon Jovi history.
* later today, FighterBJ uploaded the full concert Yokohama 1986 as well๐Ÿ˜

I collected all 1986 recordings from the FighterBJ channel, and put them in chronological order;
Bon Jovi 1986 – A Transitional Year { FighterBJ Channel }
And, mind if I sayย Oh la la!
This is probably the best, most juicy playlist for the real Bon Jovi fan, who just keeps wanting more!

And you have FighterBJ to thank for it, because this niche channel has been diving deep into forgotten corners of the Bon Jovi timeline.
His knowledge about what happened in lost months, where to find lost recordings, and how to tie it all together to fill in the blanks of pre-stellar stardom Bon Jovi, is expanding every day.

Today, I made a playlist of all his 1986 recordings, in chronological order.
And although this was my selection, the year has a place in his heart as well.

He wrote me about Paris 1986:
Paris 1986 is the definition of EPIC!
Great energy throughout and just when you think it couldn’t get better Jon invites Phil Collen on stage for Boys Are Back.

Oh I do love that show!”

But not just Paris.
After crafting this list, in my opinion;
Whole Bon Jovi 1986, is the definition of epic.

This was the year when Slippery When Wet came out in August, and it has “transitional setlists”, moving from July when You Give Love a Bad Name was still played as they did on their demo version;
To August with Livin’ On A Prayer, getting their on stage debut, and new tracks actually needing INTRODUCTIONS!;
To December when both Livin’ On A Prayer and You Give Love A Bad Name, had taken over the world and to selling out venues with ease.
And with fans who belted along.

1986 is a transitional year. A rare and special time, that should not be forgotten.
Because transitional times?
Well, they are the most potent ones.

And looking back on 1986, with Bon Jovi breaking through on a worldwide and absolutely irreversibele scale, we can really say;
And the rest, is history.
