"The decision to kick off with a classic instrumental-led jam - Elton John’s Funeral For a Friend (Love Lies Bleeding) – proved inspired. Elliott has insisted the Down N Outz is a genuine band rather than a self-centered vanity project and each member had the opportunity to shine within the expansive set opener."
"Flanking the voice of Leppard stood lead guitarist Paul Guerin and Vixen’s Share Ross – the former on fire and the latter bringing some silky smooth bass to the mix. Guy Griffin’s rhythm guitar screamed understated cool and Keith Weir carried on where he’d left off at the same venue three weeks earlier tinkling his way into the hearts of an enamoured crowd. Throw in Phil Martini’s pounding class and it was immediately obvious why Elliott loves his time fronting Down N Outz."
