The Skinny: Bon Jovi brought a set heavy with sugar coated ballads to a swooning Montreal audience on the first night of two shows in the city. The band has moved on from being a must-see rock act to being a curiosity for those who remember 1989. Seeing the band live was once a badge of honour, now it’s simply an excuse to get out of the house and let someone else do homework with the kids. Would be nice to see the band rip into older material like “In And Out Of Love”, but those days are gone forever.
