Vox Online - Online Review Quote

"Elliott brought Download to an end tonight with a stirring tribute to drummer Rick Allen - he spoke of how their 1986 gig had been his comeback after having had his arm amputated following a serious car accident and of his 'spiritual rebirth' at that point in time. His words were so moving that the Download crowd cheered and applauded Allen who stood up behind his drums, raising his arm before wiping tears from his eyes."

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