Bon Jovi plays Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida on February 14, 2017.

Bon Jovi sold out Tampa's Amalie Arena on Valentine's Day, and worked through a nearly two and a half hour long set for more than 18,000 screaming, standing fans. Here's a snippet from our review:

Tuesday’s set leaned hard on This House Is Not For Sale, and songs from the 2016 album occupied nearly a third of the 23 song setlist. Bon Jovi was quick to draw their gun loaded with hits, however, and they ignited a roar when they launched into “You Give Love A Bad Name” from the band’s seminal 1986 album Slippery When Wet. It was the first big arena rock moment during a set short on them, but that’s to be expected from the New Jersey rockers.
