Bon Jovi is out to give you more for less.
Less, that is if you are a stickler about the lineup. Jon Bon Jovi claims guitarist Richie Sambora bailed out on the day the tour started for personal reasons not yet made clear.
The tour rolled on with Phil X (Xenidis) taking over lead guitar duties, as he has before when Sambora was indisposed.
But in recent tour stops, the show has pulled up 15 minutes short of the three-hour mark. That’s time enough on Saturday for Jon and company to play everything fans expect and then some, from the ’80s classics to a new album that answers the question of its title, “What About Now.”
