have been a cold damp night in Manchester but to Jon Bon Jovi it was
'like taking a shower with 45,000 of his closest friends'.
"Let's turn up the fire baby," he told the crowd at Lancashire County
Cricket Club as the US rock icons kicked off last night's show against a
The group, formed nearly three decades ago, thrilled their sea of fans
as they stormed through a set featuring hits from their back catalogue.
Jovi, who has notched up a string of sexiest male accolades in his time,
thrilled the women in the crowd even more when he said: "I like to hear
