Star 102.5 - Online Review Quotes
"Joe Elliot is still a fantastic frontman presence for the band. Time hasn't been as kind to his voice as many would hope, but at least he hasn't gone down the road of a poor sounding voice like Motley Crue's Vince Neil or a sad look like Axl Rose from Guns N' Roses. Elliot definitely has the "older rock singer" look down. He walked the large stage in a denim jacket, skull t-shirt, and jeans. I'd be lying if part of me didn't want to see him come out in a sleeveless Union Jack shirt."
"Musically, the band is still strong as ever. It was really great to see guitarist Vivian Campbell running around on stage, now without his trademark long curly hair after a second battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. It’s been less than a month since Campbell shared with the music world that he was in remission again and was able to continue with his bandmates in Def Leppard as he has for more than 20 years."
