Early in his performance at Legacy Arena at The BJCC in Birmingham, Alabama on February 16th, Jon Bon Jovi of Bon Jovi mentioned he last played Birmingham 28 years ago. He and the rest of the band more than made up for the gap in performances with a well received and entertaining show in front of thousands of fans in the Magic City.
Even though I didn't have much time to shoot, I enjoyed the opportunity to finally photograph Bon Jovi and appreciated the showmanship he displayed on stage. He definitely had an instant connection with the audience, which ranged from young to old.
The production values of the performance were also top notch, which shouldn't be a surprise for a tour of this caliber. It is always nice to shoot an arena show and a full on production.
