Bon Jovi Concert
Last Thursday I went to see Bon Jovi in concert. The concerts was held in Madrid, in "La Peineta". It was amazing.
When we arrived at half past eight the stadium wasn't very full, but there was a good atmosphere. People were singing, shouting and doing Mexican waves. There were two ways of seeing the concert: sitting or standing. We had chosen standing and the view that we had was excellent. At around half past nine, the time the concert was due to start, the stadium was almost full with around 50.000 people. At precisely twenty to ten, the band drove up to the stadium, the fans were going crazy. The band jumped on to the stage and sang their first song. However, it wasn't until they sang their second song, "Living on a prayer" that I actually realised that, right before my eyes, I was watching Bon Jovi Live! As the adrenaline went through my body I began screaming and dancing.
The concert lasted just over two hours and, in my opinion, it was one of the best concerts I have ever seen. I would recommend going to see Bon Jovi in concert to everyone.
