On Sunday 16th Dec I went to a Bon Jovi concert as part of their Lost Highway tour, held at GM Place here in Vancouver. I had been lucky enough to win a ticket at David's works Christmas party the previous week. I went with 'the girls' (Davids colleagues) while David stayed at Donnellys (Jaimes husband) and played games on their XBox360.
The gig was particularly good because the band apparently love Vancouver having written three of their albums here and so did 3hr sets on their Saturday and Sunday night performances, consisting of all the tracks of their current album Lost Highway together with all of their number 1's. Add to that the pre-Christmas treats of a couple of Christmas songs and a visit by Santa and a it was quite a party with a great time had by all.
Obviously the lighting did little to help get good photos (nor did not taking a camera!) but I did manage to scrounge some images off of Addy.
Below is the group of us at Jaime & Donnellys apartment before we left.
From left to right,
Me, Addy, Bonnie, Caroline, Jaime, Andrea & Jen (who somehow managed not to go into labour during the night !)

A view down onto the stage....obviously much clearer when we were there than in the picture with low resolution and poor light
And a visit by Santa.......
