Billboard - Classic Review Quotes

"Opening act Def Leppard, touring to promote their current album, 'Pyromania,' were a major disappointment."

"Their nine-song, 50-minute set got off to a slow starts, and only after the third song did the audience really begin to warm up to them, and vice versa."
