The Bon Jovi Experience

Image

Last week my friend bonjoviaddiction and I went to watch the band Bon Jovi Experience play at The Brook in Southampton. It’s an awesome venue, definitely go there if you get the chance. It seems to cater mainly to tribute bands, but original artists play there too.  The stage is huge and there are two bars, one upstairs and one down, with plenty of space.

I’ve never really been into Bon Jovi’s music (aside from loving their song ‘Dead or Alive’ after hearing it in a Supernatural episode), but that didn’t matter. I love going to live music. I love the atmosphere, how loud it is, the energy, how raw and primal music sounds when you’re there watching it. The Bon Jovi Experience rocked.

My friend, who is a Bon Jovi fan, told me that the band were accurate, especially the front man who was impersonating Jon Bon Jovi. He was pretty awesome, he looked like he was having so much fun up there. He was dancing about, giving it all that, women were screaming for him to touch their hands. What a great job to have! And this guy is a professional. He’s won look-alike competitions and has performed with Jon Bon Jovi himself.

So as far as I’m concerned, I’ve seen Bon Jovi play live now. I’d do it again, too. I’ve decided that the best way to listen to Bon Jovi now is to  go and watch the Bon Jovi Experience play live. I wasn’t a fan when I walked into The Brook, but I was when I walked out.

GISHWHES: Day 1

This week I’m taking part in GISHWHES (Greatest International Scavenger Hunt The World Has Ever Seen) for the first time. Today was my first full day.

Thanks to GISHWHES, I discovered a beautiful part of Southampton I’ve never seen before. When this week is over and I have some free time I’m definitely going to go back there and explore.

The reason that I ended up wandering around that part of town is because I was looking for a costume shop I was sure was nearby. After a lot of getting distracted, I managed to find the costume shop. My purchases resulted in this:

Very fun, although I didn’t enjoy washing off my ‘tattoos’ so much…
