Tour highlights

In the Fall of 1983 Bon Jovi played their first ever show at Madison Square Garden, New York City. A "thrilling experience" for the young band, it gave the band the confidence to move forward.

Most of the tour, Bon Jovi were support acts for The Scorpions (USA-Tour 1984) and Kiss, but there were some concerts with Bon Jovi as the main act such as at the Syria Mosque Theater, Pittsburgh and the Super Rock Tour in Japan.

The songs "Runaway", "Breakout" and "Get Ready" grew in popularity with fans as they were most often played during the tour.

Set list

Here is the set-list usually used if Bon Jovi were the main act of the concert:
