Los Angeles Times - Online Review Quotes
"Blackfoot, a Florida-based quartet, with the sound of a lobotomized Lynyrd Skynyrd, was the headliner at the Santa Monica Civic on Saturday night."
"But judging by the T-shirts and audience reaction, at least half of the packed house was there primarily to see Def Leppard, an English quintet that rehashes orthodox Anglo riff-rock dicturns with all the originality of a Detroit compact."
This and other archive concert reviews can be found on the show pages in the Tour History.
