Versions of Songs[edit]

The duet of "I Don't Like Mondays" with Bob Geldof was performed at Wembley Stadium just two weeks short of the tenth anniversary of Live Aid, where Geldof performed the same song at the same stadium as part of the Boomtown Rats. He would later perform the same song almost exactly ten years later in London again at Live 8. This 1995 rendition of the song was previously released on a rare special edition 2-CD version of These Days. Several copies of the album misprint the year of the recording as 2000 however the actual year is 1995 when Bon Jovi performed at Wembley Stadium as part of the These Days tour. During the intro to the song, Jon Bon Bovi mistakenlly welcomes Bob Geldof by saying to the crowd "You should be proud to call him your own" despite Geldof being Irish, not English

"One Wild Night 2001" is a new remix version rather than a live version. The difference between this version and the original Crush version is the length; the intro and other sections were cut out. This was released as a single for this album and featured a music video. The new version also features on the compilation album Tokyo Road: Best of Bon Jovi.

The live version of "Wanted Dead or Alive" was also released as a single and had a promotional video produced for it, this depicted live performances of the song and some backstage footage.
