Bon Jovi: Live From London [DVD]
Release Date: November 15, 2004
To sum up, this DVD is a good showcase of Bon Jovi's talents, with an exellent performance. But the disc is let down by the extras and length. This seems lazy.

Sound: Following the huge success of the '80s many thought Bon Jovi would fall into obscurity. The band however had different plans and enjoyed similar accomplishments in the '90s. Filmed at Wembley Stadium on June 25th 1995 in front of over 72,000 fans this prformance proves the previous statement. The band treat the crowd to an energetic performance moving from hit to album tracks from "These Days" with ease. It is true that Jon Bon Jovi's voice copes better with some songs than others; he performs Always with passion and emotion, but equally struggles with the more up tempo Bad Medicine. Richie Sambora on the otherhand ploays with freedom and pinache; you find yourself waiting exitedly for the next solo. // 9

Overall Impression: To sum up, this DVD is a good showcase of Bon Jovi's talents, with an exellent performance. But the disc is let down by the extras and length. This seems lazy. I would suggest this as a good introduction to Bon Jovi in the live setting. Other Bon Jovi live DVDs have the content but lack the fire, so you are left treading a line in between, and therefore have to buy both. I think it is time for Bon Jovi to make a definitive visual release. // 7
