This show though ...*sigh*.
It was on. Then it was postponed. Then Paper Rain Performances (the company putting not the show) declared bankruptcy. Then it was cancelled. DEVASTATED. Then it was back on ... but only for those who had purchased VIP tickets *smh...what?!* Then Jon Bon Jovi saved the day because integrity matters and the concert was back on in partnership with Rogers Area and Tourism Vancouver!!! There was no way he could let Vancouver down. After all, Bon Jovi did record their hit album Slippery When Wet in '86.
While it would have been nice to have been outside in Stanley Park and having the #BeautifulBritishColumbia as the backdrop for this glorious event, the fact that the show went on was all I cared about! So as it happened, and it would really only ever happen to me, I ended up with 2 shows - BACK 2 BACK!! My evening with Jon Bon Jovi who was on my bucket list but now crossed out, and the lovely Miguel! What are the chances??!! But, despite this double conundrum, both shows had to go on and I would be damned if I missed either [yes my coin was a sunk cost but listen!!! I take how I spend my coin very seriously and live shows are a priority sometimes!] But alas, my first show and ultimate must-see was on at 8PM SHARP! (be there or be left out), and Miguel was on at 10PM. Both venues close enough to walk that once Jon Bon Jovi called it a night, I dashed to the next venue for my 2nd show. Thank you Vancouver for being so easy to navigate and having everything within walking distance! :) And most importantly, thank you artists for going on at your scheduled time!

With his unique sound and gracious stage presence, he wowed us into submission! The soulful crooner serenaded us and boy did he bring the house down! Musiq...
