Bamboozle Festival 2012 - Day 3

Bamboozle wrapped up with their third and final day of the festival on Sunday, 5/20. Day 3 was the one headlined by Bon Jovi, and needless to say... we weren't so sure how that one was gonna go over. Hollywood Reporter loved it, saying "Bon Jovi still manages to get a huge crowd reaction simply by flashing his million-dollar smile." Meanwhile, Amanda Remling in her IB Times review, said, "The set wasn't bad...but as someone in their early 20's, I didn't go to Bamboozle pumped up to see Bon Jovi perform, even though he received an honorary Doctorate of Humanities from my Alma mater."

Bon Jovi wasn't the only artist to close out the festival who call Jersey home. Day 3 also had sets by Jersey natives Bouncing Souls and Gaslight Anthem, both of whom are pictured below. We've also got pics of comedian/actor Andrew Dice Clay, NYHC mainstays Murphy's Law, Buckcherry, and The White Panda.

Pics of day 1 are HERE, pics of day 2 are HERE, and more from day 3 below...

This looks like the shittiest festival ever assembled

Posted by Anonymous | May 28, 2012 1:01 PM

I actually really like Bon Jovi - I still see Richie Sambora supporting the scene at local Jersey hc shows and going off during the breakdowns. Although I sort of think of them in the same light at SOIA in that they probably should've thrown in the towel ten years ago, at least they've stayed active and aren't just cashing in like some of the newly reformed so-called hc/punk bands. Fu ck all the h8ters.

Jon Bon sure looks like he is in good shape... Probably due to his daily intake of Phyto-Nutrients.

I am still a big Jovi fan. The festival had a lot to be desired but the band was great.
Love the photos.

Totally off topic but the last time I was at Bamboozle, there was this amazingly annoying couple who were not only talking during the whole show but were talking about TMI info.....

Posted by Anonymous | May 28, 2012 5:05 PM

sambora is the heart and soul of that band

i defended jon for 25+ years- but when i read him badmouth american idol in time out new york by saying "you can see that in any karaoke bar" and then showing up on the show the foillowing year it was the ultimate sellout - i mean what's the difference between having 500 million and 510 million (besides 10 million)

I don't know which I hate more - JBJ the tax dodging limousine liberal or fucking D and his new butt buddy T and their douche-chill inspiring asininity.

Posted by Anonymous | May 28, 2012 9:32 PM

D, what the fuck are you even talking about? Bon Jovi hasnt cashed in? Theyve been a highly successful mainstream band for their whole career. It's not an issue of cashing in. Theyre rock stars. Very rich ones. And what are you going on about with Richie moshing to local HC bands?

Hey D...what the fuck you talking about sweetie?

why in the fuck is this festival relevant?

Posted by Anonymous | May 29, 2012 1:26 AM

^ why the fuck do you care if it is relevant or not? really who cares? I didn't go but I don't base any decisions on if something is relevant or not. You know what is relevant? The shit they play on Z100! But is that what you like?

Posted by Anonymous | May 29, 2012 7:05 AM

How and when exactly did Bon Jovi become relevant? They weren't relevant in 1987 at their commercial peak, yet somehow they now get respect. Their songwriting is corny and formulaic, and their biggest hits were co-written by outsiders like Desmond Child and Diane Warren.

If Jon were ugly or average looking, they wouldn't still have an audience.

Posted by Anonymous | May 29, 2012 7:33 AM

Wait, what? The stuff they play on Z100 is relevant.. how?

Posted by Anonymous | May 29, 2012 7:36 AM

^Look at the billboard charts..that is the shit they play on Z100

Posted by Anonymous | May 29, 2012 7:51 AM

Z100 is more relevant than hipster shit. Go outside your hipster bubble and you will see. Look at a map of Brooklyn. See how small Williamsburg is? Yeah the rest of Brooklyn (let alone most of the United States and the world) doesn't know who most of the hipster bands are. A larger percentage of Brooklyn (including the population in Williamsburg, most of the United States and other parts of the world) know who Bon Jovi is.

That being said, I think the band is terrible but they are more relevant than Animal Collective.

8:30, I will agree with you on the statement that Bon Jovi is more relevant than Animal Collective. But that's not saying much.
7:51, Billboard charts do not make music relevant.

Awww, poor 5:52. Anything good on TV in mommy's basement?

Posted by Anonymous | May 29, 2012 5:58 PM

9:52, it's easier to tell when music is NOT relevant. Music created for the sole purpose of selling product (rather than for creative purposes), is not relevant. Most of the music on Z100 is created for that purpose. And so is Bon Jovi.

God made New Jersey because he felt bad that people in Iowa had no one to feel superior to.

Posted by Anonymous | May 29, 2012 8:04 PM

New Jersey, after Long Island + Yankee Stadium, has to be one of the most god awful places in the universe.

_Melhor banda do mundo "BON JOVI".

Fun to see the old timers coming out for Bon Jovi and admitting that they are old with signs.

10:31 Lets see so your opion means you are From Staten Island and want to feel a little better about your home. How many states have you been to in your life? 2 ok maybe then NJ is the worst place but I would take NJ hands down over Long Island.
