Billboard - Media Review Quotes

"But the main attraction of the night was Def Leppard, who came out swinging with “Rocket” and performed nothing but the hits during their 90-minute set that kept the crowd on its feet. In a welcome nod to ’80s excess, there were giant video screens, elaborate lights and lasers, and even some eye-catching outfits (bassist Rick Savage almost stole the show by wearing a pastel pink tuxedo with sequined accessories while drummer Rick Allen sported a bedazzled British flag shirt)."

"Age has not slowed these guys down one bit -- they worked the stage like the pros that they are -- but time has made singer Joe Elliott and his fellow bandmates’ vocals a bit grizzled. However, a few rejiggered high notes here and there -- most notably on “Let’s Get Rocked” and “Armageddon It” -- didn’t deter from the raise-your-glass revelry of the night, and Elliott’s raspier voice actually added some charm to their cover of David Essex’s “Rock On.”
