Bon Jovi Live DVD and Blu-ray
For a group born across the water in New Jersey, 'The Garden' was the always a holy grail, the marker that they had made it. 19 years to the day after the band first performed there, they returned to the same stage for the last date of their historic Lost Highway tour, officially the biggest tour on the planet in 2008.
Created by award winning Director, Anthony M. Bongiovi and shot with 23 High Definition cameras, Live From Madison Square Garden features a career spanning set list including Have A Nice Day, Always, Wanted Dead Or Alive, Livin' On A Prayer and even a cover of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah that Cohen himself rates as his favourite version. This is a snapshot of a band 25 years into a record breaking career and still hitting their peak in the live arena.
The Blu-ray version contains a special extra, filmmaker Phil Griffin's recently released Bon Jovi documentary When We Were Beautiful. Following the band on 2008's world tour and panning back through their history, it is a fascinating insight into the workings, art, camaraderie, ups and downs of a truly megastar rock band.
With Bon Jovi's latest album The Circle just released and their O2 Arena residency in summer 2010 to come, Live At Madison Square Garden, captures exactly what the UK has to look forward to.
