OK, pretty boy, let's see what you got



Bon_jovi Jon Bon Jovi -- singer, actor, part own of an Arena Football team. Nah, none of these titles do him justice. Can we just agree that you also have to throw in words like "heart-throb" or "pretty boy?"

Tonight, Pretty Boy Jon plays Tampa's St. Pete Times Forum, and I'll be there to catch my first-ever Bon Jovi show. I gotta confess: I'm going in there with a bit of a chip on my shoulder. Last night, I caught a re-run of VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 80s, and "Livin' On A Prayer" was the top song.

Are you kidding me? It sends me into a rage every time. I want to cry "Fix!" and hunt down the warped computer hackers in Jersey who concocted this crime.

I'll get over it by the 7:30 start time. If you tune into the blog tonight, I'll try to blog some from the show. Maybe even include a photo of me and Ritchie Sambora sharing a beer bong or two.

In the meantime, here's the set list that the band was playing earlier this month:

1. “Lost Highway”
2. “Born to be My Baby”
3. “You Give Love a Bad Name”
4. “Complicated”

11. “Someday I’ll Be Saturday Night”
12. “We Got It Going On”

15. “I’ll Be There For You”
