Bon Jovi was AWESOME!!!

As usual. I have LOVED them since I was a pre-teen. I used to touch the TV screen when their videos played on MTV and sing along like a mad woman. I was obsessed. Still am, actually, to some extent. I think Jon and Richie are HOT and I love their music. Their lyrics speak to me, their music energizes me, seeing them in person gives me pure delight and goose bumps. Every time. I cannot get enough of my favorite band. I had a silly grin on my face all day Sunday just thinking about the concert. Once I arrived, I was overcome with joy and it didn't matter that it was pouring outside.

I was ready. It was showtime baby!

These are just some of the photos I shot. It was hard getting good photos with my point and shoot camera... especially with the red and blue lights and the smoke inside the arena... BUT I managed to get a few good shots to remember this special night. I had Circleside VIP tickets so when they moved up to the outer stage circle, I was literally four rows away from Jon! Wow. (Heart beating fast now!) I could see his gorgeous smile, that boyish grin, the sweat coming down his chest. Oooh, baby!

I can't wait for their next tour! They put on such an awesome show and it just keeps getting better :) They ROCK my world!

By the way, I downloaded the Poladroid demo and created vintage-looking Polaroids from a couple of my photos. Love it! So cool, easy and fun! Check this out:

That's all for now... I hope you enjoyed my concert photos!

Peace and happy scrapping,
