I am such a girl!

There are many things that get me excited in life but not many that get me THIS excited!

I am talking screaming, crying, raving lunatic mad excited!

Last week I got wind of a “Because We Can” WORLD tour by Bon Jovi.  If there is news coming out regarding this band I’m going to be one of the first to know about it ~ I have my fingers in all the pies for news! Now anyone who knows me knows I am the world’s biggest fan of this band and have been ever since they invented sliced bread. Okay, well maybe not that long but ever since they formed in 1983.  I was merely 9 years old.

It has been an uninterrupted love affair since then.

I have ALL their albums.

I know all the songs word for word.

I have been only their BIGGEST fan since I was a kid.

In the 80’s when this song (and video) was released, I was 12 years old and it got me into  a lot of trouble….


This is how the story goes….

Back in the 80’s when I was 12 years old “Livin’ on a Prayer” had just been released and Jon Bon Jovi was a super-rock-god in skin-tight ripped jeans strutting his stuff on stage. He was my idol. I adored him. One day I attempted to leave the house in my skin-tight, newly ripped jeans, Bon Jovi style. My poor father nearly had a heart attack and screamed at me “and where the hell do you think you are going dressed like that young lady?!” Needless to say I had to go back and change.

Hahahah, such good times!!

This morning it was confirmed. Bon Jovi is once again coming to South Africa’s shores.

I have been there before.

In the golden circle.

My rock idol up closer and (almost) personal.

I cried.

I screamed.

I was in a trance.

I stomped my feet in pure excitement.

Then I cried some more.

My friends will be there to support me again.

They have experienced this before.

From then

Until now

I am STILL your biggest fan.

And once again, I WILL BE THERE!!

In the Golden Circle.

Right up front.

7th May 2013 Baby.

I have my tickets.

I’ll see you there!

*Now if only I could get #87 on my Bucket List to come true my life would be complete!*
