Do not be afraid to admit it--I know you're as excited as I am for this.
Eighties rock legends Bon Jovi are resurfacing once again with their recently-released album The Circle, and the North American tour kicks off here in Seattle tonight. Even if you didn't grow up in the '80s, surely you know that Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora were inducted to the Songwriters Hall of Fame last year and The Circle has spent some time at #1 on the Billboard charts. This alone should be enough motivation to get you down to Key Arena to see what rock from the '80s is really all about.
For the kids who were born after Bon Jovi's second round of popularity (the "It's My Life" era), Dashboard Confessional will be opening both shows. Chris Carrabba and crew also have a new album (Alter the Ending, released on the same day as The Circle), and I daresay that it might get some of the older folks in the crowd to become fans.
The tour will be in town for two nights and it looks like lower level seats may still be available for both nights. Tickets are available from Ticketmaster and range from $33 for an upper level seat to $500 for a VIP experience. Shows start at 7:30 p.m.
If you can't make it to the show, you can also watch the first couple songs live via webcast on Ustream at 8:30 p.m. Look for the hand permanently formed into a "rock on" sign--that will be me.

Someone else in Seattle is excited for this show. An airplane towing a "welcome Bon Jovi" banner was circling downtown this afternoon.
