  • Bon Jovi's fourth visit to Saratoga Springs after 1995, 2003 and 2010. It's a small amphitheater in Saratoga Spings, NY. Quite a contrast to the stadiums they played before.
  • This show featured Jon's solo fun band The Kings Of Suburbia, so almost half of the set were coversongs. On Sgt. Pepper and Baba O'Riley even Bobby Bandiera took over lead vocals. In the late 80s or early 90s a show like this would have been awesome (just think of Hammersmith 1990). But in 2013 the band failed to connect with the fans. Furthermore the show wasn't announced as such which led to the fans being pissed of. I put some comments from fans who attended the show below.
  • The Fighter and Not Running Anymore, two rarely played songs, were added.


Some fan comments:


"It was a complete joke. Even my sister who is a huge Jon fan kept saying Jon really fucked up tonight and that she was glad she only paid $40 for the lawn seat. I on the other hand paid $200 for my seat and right now I would luv to tell Jon to HAVE A NICE DAY. My seats were close at both shows but closer at this show but the show on Saturday in MA was amazing. Show here SUCKED"


"I went and it was not a fun surprise believe me. So disappointed. Short and sloppy. They barely played bj songs.the band came and went throughout wonder how they felt about that. It was basically KOS. This was the worst show I have ever been to. I had no desire to hear non-bj music. [...] Hope the darien show is a bj show and not this crap."
