Star Tribune - Online Review Quotes
"There was plenty of other cheese to go with the ballpark fare: Adams led the crowd through what seemed like 45 minutes of na-na-nas during "Cuts Like a Knife"; the Leppard guys strutted out on stage to Queen's "We Will Rock You" as if they've taken over as Britain's kings of metal."
"From a sentimental standpoint, though, Def Leppard was hard to resist. Arguably the band with the saddest episode of VH1's "Behind the Music," they drew on their survivor instinct with fist-pumping hits like "Rock of Ages,"Rocket,"Photograph" and "Foolin'." Singer Joe Elliott can still wail out many of the old notes, but guitarists Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell ("the new guy") hit most of the show's highs."
