Metal Hammer - Concert Review Quotes
"As Leppard seemingly realise why they're playing it the way they are, so does the crowd, and the vibe builds majestically. It is a greatest hits set, but at this time in their career, this is probably exactly what they need to deliver. It's just that maybe Def Leppard should have stripped down this bare and laid themselves open on stage some way back now."
"But credit where credit's due, when faced by adversity, Def Leppard have never turned tail and run. And now, when they are regarded by some as passe, they have refused to buckle to current trends or pander to marketing whims, and the back to basics approach evident on the greater part of their last album 'Slang' is in full effect tonight."
