Bon Jovi keep it fresh

Rockers Bon Jovi change their set list every night to keep their performances fresh and compared their London tour to working in a bakers.
Great deals on musical instruments

Jon Bon Jovi feels like a "baker".

The singer's group Bon Jovi are currently mid-way through a 12-date residency at London's O2 Arena and have been changing their set list every night.

Explaining their decision, the frontman said: "Would you buy yesterday's bread from a baker? These set lists are all made fresh. Delivered every night at 7:30. the delivery men wait outside my door, patiently for its arrival."

The group have already performed over 50 tracks from their 11 studio albums, but have vowed to bring in more tracks.

Speaking on stage last night (22.06.10) - the ninth show - Jon told the crowd: "I think we've done around 55 songs and I want to try and get it to 70."

He then went on to introduce `Garageland', the first time it had been aired during the residency, admitting it was likely only "diehard" fans would know the track.

The group interspersed classic favourites such as `Always', `Livin' On A Prayer', `You Give Love A Bad Name' and `Dead or Alive' with rarities and b-sides, yet the reception for every track was equally rapturous.

Though they are onto the last few dates of their residency, the group's energy was fresh as the first night and they appeared capable of sustaining the shows even longer if they were able to.
