Snap Scene: Richie Sambora & Orianthi, Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne 27th Sept 2016

Former Bon Jovi lead guitarist/songwriter Richie Sambora and his partner Orianthi played a concert under their RSO moniker at Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne, Australia on Tuesday 27 September 2016. Sambora was a founding member of Bon Jovi for almost 30 years, co-writing some of the band’s most successful songs such as Livin’ On A Prayer, and Wanted Dead or Alive, and has sold over 100 million records with them.

Australia’s own rock goddess, Adelaide born Orianthi Panagaris, is a renowned guitar talent, being one of only three female guitarists ever to grace the cover of US Guitar magazine, the first female guitarist to play in Alice Cooper’s band, and was enlisted by the late Michael Jackson for his This Is It concert tour (and featured heavily in the film of the same name). For the second concert of their 2016 Australian Tour, RSO played songs from both Richie and Orianthi’s solo catalogues, some Bon Jovi classics, plus cover songs from other artists like Michael Jackson’s Black or White and Sonny & Cher’s I Got You Babe.
