New Jersey rock band Bon Jovi performs some of their biggest hits before an appreciative crowd on this DVD that documents one stop on their 2000 Crush Tour. The disc contains a standard full-frame transfer. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. Supplemental materials include videos for "It's My Life" and "Say It Ain't So," a half-hour documentary loaded with backstage footage, a photo gallery, and a discography. The band performs songs from every era of their career including "You Give Love a Bad Name," "Bed of Roses," "Bad Medicine," and over a dozen more, making this a superb disc for fans of Jon, Richie, and the rest of the guys.

I am 63 and went to my very first rock concert on Tuesday March 4, 2003. My daughter and I went to celebrate her brother's and my son's birthday which is on St. Patrick's day. My son taught himself to play the drums listening to Bon Jovi in the 80's. He got so good that he went on to form his own rock band. He once told me (in 1985) that these men of Bon jovi would be around for many years to come. He was right! My son is no longer with us, but every time I hear ''I'll be there for you'' I think of him and the music of Bon Jovi. The concert was the best thing I have ever done for myself. These young men are not only great, they are wonderful people. The drums of Tico, the keyboard, and Richie, need I say more. John has never sounded better. They are the best!
THIS WAS NOT REALLY ONE OF THEIR BETTER OFFERINGS. IT WAS GOOD, BUT NOT OUTSTANDING.
I became a fan around 85 & actually went off the band for much of the 90's - the These Days CD I thought was a little weak - the Crush CD turned me around & back onto them. This is definately one of the better music dvds around. JBJ & the boys deliver a great show. Huge crowd, great camera work/ sound production/ editing etc. Not many complaints - Blood on Blood & In These Arms are unfortunately not here. Highlights - there are many 'Livin On A Prayer', 'Lay Your Hands On Me', 'Wanted DOA', 'I'll Sleep When I'm Dead', 'Bed of Roses' 'Just Older', 'Keep The Faith' & It's My Life' to name but a few. Sure many of their songs are a little 'formulated', but they are a fun band & they are also very talented musicians. The extras are great - performance videos for 'It's My Life' & 'Say it isn't So' & an interview. Hopefully the rumour is true that they will be releasing a live dvd of the acoustic show they did in Yokohama (Japan) a few weeks back. The song list for that show was dramatically different to the one that is featured in this dvd. I also would like to see them release a dvd including every single one of their performance videos from 'Runaway' right through to the 3 they have done from Bounce. Sure there would be more hair than music for many of the earlier videos (ie they would be outdated compared to current performance video standards) - but hey - many of us grew up listening/ watching those videos, it would be great to have them all on one single dvd. They must have at least 40 performance clips - throw in some solo stuff & some live cuts from their performances at Castle Donnington, Rock in Rio '90, The Moscow Music Peace Festival, MTV Unplugged etc etc & we would all have one hell of a dvd with 50 or so songs. Sound like a good idea?
