Kyle O’Brien of The Oregonian reviewed the Bon Jovi show at the Rose Garden on Monday (April 14). O’Brien writes, “Thankfully, the hair has been trimmed and the costumes have given way to sleek, modern duds. But the music still sounds best in an arena full of screaming fans. Bon Jovi knows how to work a crowd, too. His charisma, movie-star good looks and charming smile made the many women in the nearly sold-out Rose Garden cheer and shout, and with every shake of his hips in skintight blue pants, the crowd responded with squeals of delight, sometimes to deafening effect.” Oregonlive.com has since removed the article.
