To say that we here atNew Times Broward/Palm Beach
are huge Bon Jovi fans would be an understatement. We're like those people who grew up with JBJ's face and feathered hair plastered on our walls. We slept with his cassette tapes under our pillows. When word hit the office earlier this week that our favorite hair-band-gone-sensitive '80s rocker was coming to Hard Rock Live on July 26 with a backing band called the Kings of Suburbia, we overlooked the corny name, and the only sounds heard around here were gasps, yells, and panties hitting the floor.
Now, we know that JBJ is a must-see for any female over the age of 30, but let's delve deeper into why you need to watch one of New Jersey's best live next month, even if it'll cost you more than a hundred bucks for a seat. Let's start with this pic here and move on from there.
4. Slippery When Wet
This album came out in 1986, and you can still regularly see all sorts of people, those from Bushwick to Las Olas, dancing to three songs off ofSlippery When Wet
to this day. Can you sayclassic
? We can. Classic.
3. Where Will You Be?
"I'll Be There for You" is one of the most awesome power ballads of all time. Press play and get ready tofeel things
2. Big Politics
When you're like that little girl who loved Young Guns II but all grown up, the next sexiest thing in the world besides a man singing about the Wild West is one with good politics. JBJ is a big-time supporter of a couple of people that young girl ended up voting for.
