    I remember Sammy saying he was down about the way they were recieved on the Bon Jovi European tour, but it seems the audience was relatively into it. Of course, we can't see how they reacted to Bon Jovi. Funny, because in the early to mid 90's, I thought Bon Jovi was on the down slide and until 1996 Van Halen were still a force.

    Those Bon Jovi shows on the 1995/96 These Days Tour were absolutely NUTS worldwide. Every bootleg you see and hear is just so loud, and the band was at their peak performance-wise.

    Thing about Bon Jovi is, These Days wasn't too well-received in America and would imply that they were on the slide, but what people don't know is, worldwide it was probably their second highest selling album (I believe it beat out New Jersey but was just behind Slippery When Wet). The album sold 20 million copies alone around the world, despite poor sales in the US. This may explain why their tour was extended through 1996 with more dates outside the US.

    Outside of America at this time, Van Halen was NOTHING compared to Bon Jovi. Say what you will about the music, but those numbers don't lie. I'm sure Sammy Hagar will say the same thing, hell, he pretty much already has.

    European crowds like to clap to the beat throughout the songs. I can see where that would get annoying after awhile.

    Holy God, it's a bit much!
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red
