State Times Advocate - Classic Review Quotes

"Def Leppard, unlike so many of the band's fire-and-brimstone-ly decadent musical peers, plays songs with hooks and choruses - complete with historic vocals and screaming guitars, salvoes, to be sure, but with far more finesse and innocent exuberance than the genre usually shows."

"Playing before a surprising small crowd of just under 4,000 fans Thursday night."

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