Bon Jovi sported A KU National champs hat tonight - 04/18/08 12:39 AM

Re: Bon Jovi sported A KU National champs hat ton - 04/18/08 12:43 AM

Bill Self was in attendance as well.

Also, from Scout:

Jovi was sporting a 2008 National Championship hat before singing 'Living on a Prayer'. KU flashed across the screens. Most people cheered like there was no tomorrow. Some clowns tried to boo, but Jovi drowned them out with his Mario Chalmers like sweetness.

My wife and I were there last night. They played a video showing lots of Kansas City Landmarks including Gates BBQ and the Truman Sports Complex, the downtown skyline etc. Then they showed the Royals and Chiefs logo followed up by Jayhawk (yes, in Trajan). No Tiger or Wildcat.

Jon Bon Jovi also said "How do you like National Champions?"

After the song Bon Jovi said " after the show I'm going to buy Coach a drink" and then he threw the KU National Champions hat into the crowd.

I was told Bill and Cindy were backstage as well.

It was pretty cool. Good concert too.

Bon Jovi kicks ass. I still remember when I bought his "Crossroads" cd, the one with the greatest hits. All my friends were making fun of me until a few weeks later when they all went out and bought it.

I don't know about being Jersey trash, but they sure had some good songs when I was growing up.

Bon Jovi has certainly been known to pander. During the closing ceremonies for the Salt Lake City Olympics he was the featured act. On-stage, he literally--and I mean literally--wrapped himself in the American flag as he sang one of his rock anthems. I thought that was a bit much, especially since the occasion was to celebrate the coming together of all nations of the world, not to glorify a particular country.

Given the cost of tickets these days, I demand pandering to the audience. Anyway, the bandwagon is big enough for a pop star or two.

Wouldn't mind if it were somebody a little better. Getting worked up over Jon Bon Jovi in a KU hat is only slightly more dignified than getting juiced if Foghat put Jayhawk stickers on their instruments.

I could get worked up over Alicia Keys in a KU hat. Maybe it wouldn't be dignified, but I could get worked up over it.

Re: Bon Jovi sported A KU National champs hat ton - 04/18/08 08:55 AM

No complaints there. Hot female celebrities and entertainers can rock KU gear all they want. As for Bon Jovi, leave the hat alone, it's covering up the only reason people keep listening to your music.

Must have made Mizzou and K-Hate fans happy. Bon Jovi didn't even know KU won the N.C. until someone gave him the hat to put on. The goofball owns the Philly Soul and put on a Rush jersey while in Chicago. Enough said?

Re: Bon Jovi sported A KU National champs hat ton - 04/18/08 10:45 AM

this is a funny coincidence.

I know the video/ lighting director on this tour and met up with him on wednesday night for a few beers. He offered me tickets to the show tuesday....anyway. He would have mentioned that they were putting 'the shot' into the video for the show so this must have been a last minute addition.


I'll text him this afternoon and report back.

Re: Bon Jovi sported A KU National champs hat ton - 04/18/08 10:56 AM

You guys are getting all worked up for nothin. The Hat thing was not planned. It was thrown to him from the crowd and he put it on, the camera zoomed in on the hat
and the reaction for the crowd was cool especially since we were in missery! I know it got the loudestreaction from me all night! Anyways Im 23 so not really a huge bon jovi fan but it was worth goin.

I was there as well and it was pretty sweet at the crowd reaction when he put on the hat. Everyone around me was screaming and giving high-5's except the doof with the K-State hat on. *hahah* Also loved it when they showed the KU emblem and no Mizzou stuff either.

Re: Bon Jovi sported A KU National champs hat ton - 04/18/08 01:09 PM

It is a nice gesture, but likem said before...they were just playing to the crowd...I would love to replace the U2 song with ANYTHING else...secondly, I cant imagine the backlash when Ritchie Sambora is busted again for a DUI wearing his new KU jersey.
Posted by: mushhawk

Re: Bon Jovi sported A KU National champs hat ton - 04/18/08 01:10 PM

i'm so sick of that U2 song.

how did that become our school song??

stupid marchiony is probably a big U2 fan.

the KU band already plays living on a prayer though....usually during time-outs.

those pics are cool! the band doesn't look too excited to get the KU jerseys though. probably not big sporto's.

anyone got a shot of bon jovi wearing the NC hat during the concert??

I used to make my living playing acoustic guitar and singing in a little dive bar in Hoboken called "The Beached Syringe." One night, I'm half-way through my set when a group of four or five women walk into the bar. I later realized they were actually guys, just with lots of hairspray and tight jeans. I don't want to get off point, though.

As I go through my set, I can tell these guys (or whatever) are really into my stuff. They are really enjoying themselves. Anyway, as I finish my set, I realize the dark-headed one is holding a recording device. I approach him about it and he says he's just trying to get an idea of the acoustics of the bar and that he was going to turn the tape over to their mixing board technician to figure out how to soundscape the Beached Syringe for their upcoming show. I let it go at that. I mean, it was 1982 and I had blow to do.

Two years later, I couldn't believe it, my songs on adult contemporary radio. Word for word. The DJ tells me they're from a hot young band out of New Jersey. At this point my blood begins to boil. I go pick up the album and look at the credits of the tracks. This is what I see:

"Runaway (Bon Jovi song)|Runaway" (Jon Bon Jovi, George Karak) 3:50
"Roulette" (Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora) 4:41
"She Don't Know Me" (Mark Avsec) 4:02
"Shot Through the Heart" (Bon Jovi, Jack Ponti) 4:25
"Love Lies" (Bon Jovi, David Rashbaum) 4:09
"Brakeout" (Bon Jovi, Rashbaum) 5:23
"Burning for Love" (Bon Jovi, Sambora) 3:53
"Come Back" (Bon Jovi, Sambora) 3:58
"Get Ready" (Bon Jovi, Sambora) 4:08

That's right, folks, I am a little upset with Bon Jovi. Their entire debut album was lifted from my set at the ol' Syringe. At least I can look back at it and accept that all of those songs suck and I'm glad I didn't have to spend the next 24 years of my life playing them.

You're right though, I'm jealous of Jon; he just got to meet Bill Self.

Posted by: jayhawklaw

Re: Bon Jovi sported A KU National champs hat ton - 04/18/08 03:53 PM

The story was going to be about how at one point I auditioned to replace Richie Sambora in the band and came with a couple of songs I had written. They never called me back...same ending.

Thought it was funnier to malign a town, (Hoboken) and the toxic dump that is north Jersey (The Beached Syringe), and take credit for their debut album rather than some later favorites--I had living on a prayer in mind, but by the time I got around to writing it, people had mentioned it so many times, I thought that would look way too unoriginal.

My favorite part was the character being pleased to not have had to play the songs over and over, yet being jealous of Bon Jovi only for the fact that he met Bill Self. I, too, find that the only redeeming quality of Mr. Bonjiovi.

All in all--thirty minutes--idea to completion.
