Melody Maker - Concert Review Quotes

"The reply was lost in a landslide of noise as Def Leppard smacked out their first power chord of their set."

"That first chord was like a grenade going off in your hand; surviving the rest of the performance was like living through Pearl Harbour."

"The drummer sounded like he was shitting amplified house bricks. His bass-drum kicks walloped holes in the chest; each cymbal crash was a sustained opera of alarm."

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