Concert review: Bon Jovi rocks Oklahoma City fans

When the beginning chords of "Because We Can" off the new album began to play, deafening screams and thunderous applause brought a smile to the legendary rocker's face. The folksy cadence to the newer single has a different feel to it but crowds couldn’t get enough ... the classics and new alike.

After two standing ovations, Bon Jovi really eating up the accolades, the band made their final exit off the Chesapeake Energy stage. Fans, finally registering they were not coming out for another ovation, boisterously began filing out of the arena, satisfied and full from a great night of rock and roll. You still got it, Bon Jovi!

Reviewer’s Take:

Bon Jovi fans were rewarded with rousing renditions of old songs and enthusiastic execution of newer singles.

This rock band has stood the test of time and delivered an Oklahoma-sized punch for rock and roll lovers of all ages. Bon Jovi was “Wanted - Dead or Alive” in OKC last night!
