Jon Bon Jovi claims not to be a good guitarist. We think he is being humble.

Now who said bass players can't write good songs.

Now, we realize that this photo looks like Jon is giving Hugh a huge wedgie. We assure that we don't think so.

Best pose ever! Guess that is why it is on the back of all the tour t-shirts.

TAPintoTravels - If you wanted to define New Jersey, two names come to mind: Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen.  Fortunately, they will both be performing in the TAPinto area in April.

While the Boss is performing on Broadway for his sold out show, Bon Jovi will play in Newark on April 7 & 8 at the Prudential Center.  Tickets are still available for Bon Jovi, so do not delay. 

It seems remarkable the amount of quality music he has created since emerging from obscurity in Sayreville, New Jersey.

TAPintoTravels covered his Madison Square performance last year.  Despite recovering from a bout of bronchitis that forced him to push back the concert by a week, Bon Jovi paid homage to New Jersey and New York City, first with a video featuring images of both.  The best was the approach through the Holland Tunnel.  With that intro, the band came on and played hit after hit.

Jon Bon Jovi, Tico Torres, and David Bryan remain the heart of the band after 30 years. They are now joined by Phil X and Hugh McDonald.  It's sad to divulge our age, but we at TAPintoTravels think of Phil and McDonald as the new guys (sigh).

Speaking of age, Bon Jovi joked about it several times, displaying the genuine, honest nature we have come to know and admire.  However, if you take away the extra high hair, even at 55 the man seems to have not aged a day. 

Bon Jovi not only pulled off a great Madison Square show but, more importantly, he made his state proud.
