Music Web - Online Review Quotes

"No one leaves without hearing at least a handful of patented Lep classics - Pour Some Sugar On Me, Rock Of Ages, Photograph et al. Indeed, it's no surprise that the majority of the set is made up of numbers from Pyromania and Hysteria - the finest opuses in the quintet's career."

"Opening with a swashbuckling Let It Go, Joe Elliott's crew go on to deliver a mesmerizing acoustic rendition of Last Action Hero soundtrack Two Steps Behind, star ballad Too Late For Love and the anthemic cheese of Make Love Like A Man. There aren't too many words for performances like this, with musical heavyweights from start to finish underpinned by a band who've never sounded as tight and superior in their whole lives."

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