The Vinyl District - Concert Review Quotes

"They took the slick production of Pyromania to a new level sonically and produced a record that would appeal to pretty much everyone on the planet. And it did. It is Def Leppard’s best-selling album to date, selling over 25 million copies worldwide, including 12 million in the US, and spawning the aforementioned seven hit singles. Mutt and the Leppard boys took the concept of “bigger and better” even further as they pushed the limits by making the album 62 and a half minutes and one of the longest ever issued on a single vinyl record."

"How does the record hold up after more than three decades? Brilliantly. From the opening cut of “Women,” the capacity crowd at the SSE Arena knew they were in for something special. I had been listening to the record all week long reliving my teenage angst years preparing for this show and it was everything I expected it to be and more. All the hits sounded great—even their biggest hit which I loathe, “Love Bites” sounded good, rounded out with an encore lead by the undercelebrated “Promises” from 1999’s return to form Euphoria, and a fast follow up with “Rock of Ages” and “Photograph”—all the makings for an epic arena rock show like no other."

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