Lithium Magazine - Online Review Quotes
"Def Leppard hit their sweet spot for the evening by performing a full band acoustical melody. An equipment case was placed in the front of the stage while each member joined in partway to deliver a five song layering of "Where Does Love Go When it Dies," "Now," "When Love and Hate Collide," "Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad," and "Two Steps Behind." Elliott's vocals shined among the collective harmonies, while Allen played the maracas with a grin that was so contagious you couldn't help but smile."
"On the home stretch, fans were now dripping in sweat yet totally unaffected as they welcomed the next round of songs with the same amount of 'hysteria', including the hit… "Hysteria". "Armageddon It" followed suit, and "Photograph" garnered huge cheers as a slide show played on multiple digital screens of the band in their heyday. The transformation of 25 years erupted in some giggles on the overuse of hairspray and leather."
