I think in some by-laws in the state of New Jersey it says that in life you must do two things.
1. See Bruce Springsteen in concert
2. See Bon Jovi in concert
I already accomplished #1 many years ago when we lived in Jacksonville, FL and #2 is being taken care of this Sunday!
Seeing Bruce Springsteen was an absolute fluke. I had no idea he was coming to town and I got the tickets about two hours before the show. I basically sat on my computer and kept hitting refresh until I got tickets. We actually scored floor seats - well floor standing room. Best concert!
When I was probably a teenager, my friend Andrea asked me to go see Bon Jovi. Her sister was going and she asked me to go. I was beyond excited until my father told me I could not go. WHAT, WHAT - I can't go see Bon Jovi in the Meadowlands because an adult was not going - so UNFAIR!
Who knew they would be around this long and it would take me another 20 years to see them (that made me feel really old).
I almost was not able to get tickets to see them. I went online for a month to try and get them but nothing but behind the stage. Then one day I went online and they told me I could not get them online any more so I had to call Ticketmaster. Calling Ticketmaster is an event in itself....but after about 45 mins I scored my tickets.
We might be up in the nose bleed but this Jersey Girl is going to see Bon Jovi!
