Kerrang! - Online Review Quotes

"Take away the horrendous sound problems, take away the obvious problems of Rick Allen having to play with one arm (a helluva brave guy!), and you're still left with the fact that Def Leppard are really rather ordinary these days."

"The Leps have got a problem. The superlative Mutt Lange production on 'Pyromania' necessarily results in those songs sounding lame in comparison when viewed live and naked. Even the classic 'Photograph' sounded as if it were limping rather than sprinting majestically."

This and other archive concert reviews can be found on the show pages in the Tour History.
