My daughter and I are both Bon Jovi fans and were at the concert. I have seen him at least 10 times in the 25 or so years I have been a fan. The band and Jon Bon Jovi has gotten better with time and age. They out did themselves on this “Circle” tour at Philips Arena. Jon can’t get any better looking and more energetic and the band continues to rise to his energy. I will continue to see them as long as the band continues to perform. Great show!!

It was a great concert! We had so much fun – and like others, I think they get better with age! Can’t wait for them to come around again.

Me and my wife went to the Circle show and had a great time! She loved it. They rock the house and some of the new songs they played were very good. Them guys earned every penny.
Rock on

My husband and I went to see Bon Jovi at Philips. We have seen them many times during our 28 years together. This band gets better with age. Not only better looking better songs and are so in touch with what the world is going through. Jon can rock it out or sing a ballad. My favorite song during the show was Halleiugh. It was simple and beautiful.

wanted to go – just couldn’t justify paying more to see Bon Jovi than Eric Clapton.

Last night was my first Bon Jovi show, although I have loved them my whole life! One of the best concerts I have ever been too! Jon is so sexy, and the whole band if awesome! I will definitely see them again!

Absolutely agree. I have not been lucky enough to see them THAT many times. MY first Bon Jovi concert was the Lay Your Hands on Me Tour in 1989. I was 13 and I am now 33. I can honestly say that igt just gets better each and every time that I see them!!

I have been a fan since the beginning and I truly believe this was the best show they have ever had. The energy and excitement was amazing. Jon’s voice is so strong. I wish they were coming back tonight. I can’t wait for the next show!!!

That was my fourth time seeing them, and it was fantastic! My aunt flew from Tucson, AZ to go with me, and she says it was the worth every penny of the plane ticket and concert ticket! I can’t wait for them to come back. I’ll see them every time!

Oh yeah!! Just wanted to mention that when Jon Bon Jovi sings he can sing an entire concert and never miss one single note or get off key. He sounds like he does on record in person.

Bon Jovi’s concert was AMAZING!! His voice sounded so strong after all these years of touring. All the stuff they did with the screens and the lights was so cool!! They turned all the lights on several times and the place was packed with fans. He genuinely seemed to appreciate everyone being there! I’ve been a fan since ‘84, so when he called that out, WOW, brought back memories!!! Keep Rockin’ ON!

I traveled from Ohio to see BonJovi in Atlanta and what a GREAT concert. Loved hearing “Runaway” and “Hallelujah”. JBJ could light the world with his smile. Loved it!!!!

THE BEST Bon Jovi concert ever!! I don’t see where Jon gets all of his energy! He plays to the crowd with perfection. All of them look and sound Great. Had floor seats (Row M) for the first time….Awesome. Can’t wait for their next Atlanta concert!

What a show Bon Jovi put on! Even though I was in the upper deck I enjoyed it with my hubby very much! 3rd time seeing them ever but been a fan since HS when they started. I will say the sound was a little distorted in the upper seats. Almost as if they had Jon’s mic up too much but I am not complaining really. Jon is better looking every year and can still shake it! They are the hardest working band out there because they know where they come from and appreciate their fans. I don’t know how Jon runs around like he does on stage. I bet he looses more water than Bruce use to on stage! Also cudos go out to Rich S. as he sounds better than ever! What talent he has! My fav songs are Cowboy and Haleiugh. I could see them in an Acoustic setting for sure!

Had a great time at the concert. Me and my sister went for my birthday. Only downer was learning we got ripped off on our tickets we ordered on line from pacman and paid 503 a piece to sit sec2 row p seat 7 & 8. It would have been the best birthday ever to have sit in the pit and got to take home a chair.
