Bon Jovi became the first band to play London's O2 Arena last night, rocking the new venue with a spectacular set.
The US band wowed 20,000 fans at the new arena, formerly the Millennium Dome.
After opening with their classic hit 'Living On a Prayer', lead singer Jon Bon Jovi told fans: "Welcome to your new home. Judging by the crowd out here tonight, who the hell needs Wembley Stadium?"
The band then ripped through a set which included songs from their new album 'Lost Highway' along with old favourites such as 'Keep the Faith' and 'You Give Love a Bad Name'.
The O2 Arena will be hosting a series of big names with Justin Timberlake, The Rolling Stones, Prince, Elton John and Scissor Sisters all due to appear in the coming months.
