The show was great! I didn't care for the opening act but Kid Rock and Bon Jovi were both really good. Kid Rock played for an hour then there was about 45 minutes for stage changes and Bon Jovi came on about 9:45 and played until midnight,...continued

Wow what a performance! The big screens were a huge help for everyone who wasn't able to be in the pit. They rocked the stadium and sounded fantastic. Kid Rock was cool as well. I waited a long time to hear him shout "My name is KKKIIIIDDD ROCK!"...continued

The best concert that I have ever been to! Bon Jovi played for 3 hrs straight! Total concert lasted 5 1/2 hrs with very little down time. No bad seats can be found in Soldier Field. The seats that we had received from here were PERFECT!!!

Description

 After selling out arenas across North America, Bon Jovi’s “The Circle Tour” is heating up, as the legendary band continues to delight tens of thousands of fans at stadiums all over the U.S. and Canada, with very special guest Kid Rock. The legendary band will spend much of the next two years on the road during their biggest tour yet, performing 135 shows in 30 countries.   On “The Circle Tour”, the band renews their commitment to the kind of hard-hitting, uplifting rock & roll that has been the band’s signature since the beginning.

Fans and critics agree that “The Circle Tour” is the must-see event for 2010, with a spectacular, larger-than-life stage set that includes a state-of-the-art 800,000-watt sound system and a 4,300-square-foot, hi-def video screen—the largest of its kind in the world.  Crowds are being treated to explosive live versions of new tracks from Bon Jovi’s #1 worldwide smash The Circle, including singles “Superman Tonight,” “We Weren’t Born To Follow” and the album’s opening track “When We Were Beautiful,” as well as the band’s classic hits.  

Rave reviews have followed the band on their recent dates, with The New York Times noting that Jon Bon Jovi “lays claim to his home turf with exultant pride, and with exhortative anthems about hanging in and hanging on,” while the New York Post called the show “a rollicking extravaganza of light, sound and performance energy” and noted that “the band was in top form and made the 55,000-strong crowd roar. There was enthusiasm in the seats and on the stage at nearly every turn in the two-hour-plus show.” RollingStone.com reported that “fans greeted these classics with euphoria.”  Meanwhile, New Jersey’s own Star-Ledger simply stated that “it was spectacular…the most memorable moments of the set were the simplest ones — when the frontman let the crowd sing along to old favorites, stepped back from the mic, and shone.”  

“The Circle Tour” follows in the wake of the release of the band’s 11th studio album, The Circle, which debuted at #1 in numerous countries including the U.S.  Globally, the Grammy Award-winning band has sold more than 120 million albums, and performed more than 2,600 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 34 million fans.  Bon Jovi’s previous run, the hugely successful 2008 the “Lost Highway Tour,” was Billboard’s top-grossing tour of the year. Bon Jovi’s 10-night run to open the new Prudential Center in Newark, NJ was the #1 grossing event in 2007 and the #6 grossing event “of all time” in North America according to Pollstar.  Now “The Circle Tour” is following in those footsteps – it was recently ranked the year’s #1 grossing tour according to Pollstar.
