Fan Review - By SaraMarie

Going to the show in Rapid City, South Dakota was a last minute decision for me. I was at the Rockford, IL. show and after the show I met the band and hung out for awhile. They were joking around and asked me if I was going to South Dakota as well, since I had gone to Des Moines, IA, Moline, IL, Burlington, IA and now the Rockford, IL show. I just laughed and said, "I wish". Later on in the evening I was talking to my friends and discussed the possibility. Since I didn't have to work and had the money I decided I needed a vacation to a place I had never been before. So I got in my car and drove the 15 hours to South Dakota.

The venue was kind of small and reminded me of a high school gym for a larger sized school. That of course didn't stop the band form putting on a great show.

Ricky Warwick went on stage first and did an outstanding job. His music is great and I'm glad he's on this tour. He is a wonderful guy, a real sweetheart and a great singer.

When Def Leppard went on the crowd went wild. From where I was sitting it looked to me as if the small venue was pretty full. All the guys were full of energy and the vibe was great. You could tell right away it was going to be a great concert. After a few songs in Joe dedicated one song, I can't remember which, to a few fans in the front row who were at their 100th show. I believe it was at this show, I went to 4 in a row and I am having trouble remembering if it was this show or the one before in which he did this. If I am wrong please let me know.

It appeared to me the guys were really enjoying this show as was the crowd. There were plenty of seductive looks from Joe to the crowd, which we all love and the usual great guitar playing from Viv, Phil and Sav.

Rick Allen was all smiles and I will never get tired of watching and listening to him play the drums. It was one of the best shows I've seen. At the meet and greet afterwards Ricky Warwick, Phil and Rick Allen came to meet the fans. Rick Allen stayed until the last fan had been met and the last picture had been taken which reminds me of how wonderful of a man he really is. All in all it was well worth driving 15 hours for. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

(It was actually Rockford where these people attended their 100th show).
