Welcome to another day on this new daily blog! Every day you get
the Bon Jovi inspired yoga for that day
+ a Bon Jovi concert soundtrack for the day
+ a story!
Ranging from anywhere between
– a 2000 word blogpost, lavishly wrapped under, over and around, all things yoga and Bon Jovi;
– to refreshingly missing!
THAT IS TODAY!
I m going to my first concert in three years, and I m also staying over, for the first time in 2.5 years.
So I m packing, and have a to-do list that contains things like:
“Wifi code for A.”
A. takes care of my cats.
And my house needs to be cleaned, after suffering from total neglect, as it is almost the 2 week anniversary of this series!
Days when I spent up to 10 hours, just on posts like these, the many playlists and the page that came with it; and on designing a yoga blueprint for the days of the week.
All things I m happy with, and the amount of extra work is a hallmark of any startup phase, but it is of course not sustainable to put in this many hours, in the long run.
In other words, today is when the whole thing comes crashing down, you guys.
When daily blogging AND daily listing out all the concerts Bon Jovi has played on-this-day, AND select a YouTube audio or video that matches the day as your soundtrack; Comes to a halt!
Something has got to give.
This is the day Life steps in and says:
And I have to cut whatever I can cut.
The good news is:
I know what I m gonna cut.
I m no longer going to list ALL (pre-1997) Bon Jovi concerts;
And just share the ones that have YouTube uploads.
And today, June 22 is a perfect day to make that switch because there are no recordings available from pre-1997 Bon Jovi concerts on this day.
If I would have shared the June 22 list with you
(for old times sake: it was
“1. opening for the Scorpions
22 June, 1984, Indianapolis, Indiana, venue; Indianapolis Market Square Arena
2. secret/ small gig between two legs of the Fahrenheit tour:
22 June, 1985, Detroit, Michigan, venue; Hart Plaza “
[ Bon Jovi | She Don’t Know Me | Hart Plaza, Detroit 1985 ]
since I had already done the research yesterday!)
I would have opted the soundtrack for today to be a concert upload from between June 10 and now, that we had not used yet.
But because it coincides with me going away and not wanting to blog when I m away; And also because I now understand I’ll have to seriously start culling and capping in this series, and start putting out multiple-day posts more often and put my 10 hour days on this blog behind me for good;
I am going for the Wembleys!
The three shows were set up to provide footage for an official Bon Jovi VHS, but ended up with a lot of last minute switching on what was going to be “the correct” show for this.
I don’t remember the details but I do remember it was an exciting story.
Although I admit I find all stories from bootleg traders and all the innerest of innerest intel they have, terribly fascinating!
I got the 22 June 1985 gig: “secret/ small gig between two legs of the Fahrenheit tour” through a list I got from one of them!
So I have a thing for these stories behind the concerts, including all the switching and choices made on the three nights in Wembley.
But your definition of what is top-of-the-bill fascinating may be a different one of course!
🗓️🎶🎸Bon Jovi 23-24-25 June
Cross Road/ These Days Tour
23 June 1995
Wembley night 1
Bon Jovi | 1st Night at Wembley Stadium | Fixed Audio! | London 1995
remastered by hAnD90
Don’t know what remastered tape is? Read the description box for the story behind this Wembley recording!
24 June 1995
Wembley night 2
Bon Jovi | 2nd Night at Wembley Stadium | London 1995
remastered by hAnD90
From the description box:
“The show itself is great and, by my take, the best of all three nights by a landslide!
Jon’s vocals, the setlist, the overall energy – they’re all very good.
Originally, this was the first night to go on sale, but after the ticket sales were that high, a “third” night was added before the first two shows, pushing this one back to being the second concert.”
I remember when I listened to this show in 2020/2021, Jon said something like:
“You’re the real fans!”
Referring to the fact that this night’s attendees, were the fans that had gone through lengths, and probably waited a night in line for their record store, to get a ticket to the original two shows.
25 June 1995
Wembley night 3
Bon Jovi – Wembley 1995 (3rd night – FULL SHOW)
remastered by Damned TV
Damned TV and hAnD90, belong to the same “guild”.
I think we fans are incredibly lucky they are around, they are true keepers of the flame and the reason new generations can tune in, and get on the Bon Jovi bus, so easily.
The bootleggers ARE the new generations!
My impression is they re mostly millennials, not Gen X, and I ve met fans online that were 13, 14 years old.
I believe without fans having a chance to interact with the material so intimately, Bon Jovi would not have stayed this big.
Bon Jovi seems to have understood the importance of having your fans record, play, and share your material.
Since the 90s there are “bootleggers roll your tapes” announcements by Jon Bon Jovi, mid-concert when they were about to play something special.
And where Guns N Roses material, at least until a few years ago, was taken down from YouTube all the time;
The legacy of Bon Jovi is kept by fans, creating this incredible archive all over YouTube.
It’s like an ever-expanding Bon Jovi library, provided by and maintained by fans.
Bon Jovi’s choice to use bootleggers-inclusive speech in the 90s, has paid off in having the best documented history of rock n roll.
It has paid off in having 13 year old fans in 2022.
It has paid off because when you shine your light on someone else,
when you acknowledge the other in their power of what it is that they do best;
They will do the same for you.
“Bootleggers, roll your tapes,”
is the symbol, of befriending your antagonists, without holding back;
And being rewarded for it.
The three Wembley shows have been added to the playlist, with all the concerts from this blog:
