"That itch was definitely scratched by Def Leppard. The songs may be old, so old my wife doesn't know some of them, but the band surely isn't. They came out ready, jamming through crowd pleasers such as "Rock! Rock! Till You Drop," "Rocket" and "Animal." Even after three decades, singer Joe Elliott still has it, hitting the right notes. Each band member had a chance to showcase his talent, including a Vivian Campbell guitar solo at the end of "Love Bites" and a bass solo by Rick Savage leading into their version of David Essex's "Rock On." Drummer Rick Allen and guitarist Phil Collen also had their time in the spotlight, including an interesting camera shot down Collen's Guitar. "Guitar Hero" enthusiasts got a lesson on how to play a real guitar."
