DEF LEPPARD's HYSTERIA Tour On Fire In NOTTINGHAM (Concert Review/Photos)


After one song it made the Royal Albert Hall show look tame by comparison. And that show was very good indeed!. Is it possible to improve on something by 1000 percent?. With Def Leppard's show in 2018 apparently it is!.

Having seen what happened on the first leg of this Hysteria & More tour I was not expecting to be this impressed. Even whilst avoiding watching any full videos or with any sound on, from the Hysteria songs, it seemed to be the same VIVA! Hysteria visuals from 2013 and now used in the 2018 show.

Now on the UK leg they have new visuals for every song apart from Love And Affection and the encore. Something I hoped would happen when the tour was announced (along with an In the Round stage set up).

The new visuals and lighting made the show so much better than in 2015 and before that. As Phil began the intro to Women the concert really began and the best album this band have made (and in my opinion any band!) is now being played in front of you from start to finish. And I must say it's much better than staying up doing live updates from Las Vegas between 4 to 7 - f**king! - am - back in March/April 2013....(did that really happen?...).

The visuals and lighting were stunning and the band on fire right from the start. The tightest version of this song I've ever heard or witnessed live. All of the band looking happy and playing...AND, of course...singing brilliantly. If there's a common theme throughout this show then it's that. A flawless and brilliant performance from all of them for the full 90 or so minutes. Again not that they have not been brilliant in the past but now that are just...better.

The Def Leppard triangle in the center of the GIANT video screen behind Rick's kit revealed close ups of all of the band so you could see just how well they were playing and how much they were enjoying it. So we were we!.
