San Juan, Puerto Rico - Media Reviews

Def Leppard and Vince Neil energize the Coliseum in Puerto Rico By Coral N. Negrón Almodóvar | Original

The American singer and British band kept the public of Choliseo standing throughout the concert.

With the lead singer of the American band Motley Crue began heavy rock night at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico.

Vince Neil appeared on stage right at 8:35 pm with extreme energy that made him run around the stage while performing "Feeling good". The audience that filled the Choliseo in its smaller version stood fast to make choir foot.

The tenor of heavy metal shouted "Do you feel good?" And the audience responded with prolonged applause and shouts. Neil then performed "Live Wire" and "Looks That Kill" maintaining a refined voice. However, in two of these pieces sound of the musicians who accompanied him they were distorted at one time or another.

"These guys make mistakes sometimes very ugly," she joked the artist to keep the minds of the viewers. And it seems that the council came to them well because in the next topic, "Home Sweet Home", everything flowed pretty well.

The singer continued with "Go away mad" and "SOS". And for the interpretation of these successes he had changed his blue guitar and a purple leopard print. On these issues the drummer Zoltan Chaney, was showcased swiftly moving his hands and up his legs to sound the drum set.

The show remained drummer in the next interpretation. In this, Jeff Soft Slaughter guitarist, sang and played "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin. Neil left the stage at that time.

On his return, he played "Kickstart My Heart", "Girls girls girls" and "Wildside" as an endpoint. At the end drummer climbed into one of the giant speakers and jumped to touch the metal dishes last time.

Def Leppard's turn

It last half hour of the departure of Neil and musicians, at 10:00 pm, Choliseo began to vibrate with the first song of the main attraction of the night: Def Leppard.

The first songs he played Joe Elliott, lead singer were "Rock rock till you drop", "Animal" and "Let it go". The latter of the renowned album "High 'N' Dry" caused the audience to stand up to jump.

Then the British band played "Foolin", "Promises" and "Paper Sun" with an overwhelming energy. This was reflected in three giant screens projected a quick tour of lights intensity. Then, with the projection of battle scenes around the globe. At the height of the last song when an image of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945 was presented.

"Love Bites" was the theme that followed. With this romance came through the wide door. "Love bites, love bleeds," chanted the fans standing while eyes closed and moved to the rhythm of music.

Then he returned to dominate the theme of global issues. With the theme "Armageddon It" numbers of deaths from pollution, war, alcohol, cigarettes, cancer and projected hunger.

"It's just you and me in this. Are you ready? "He enunciated in vocalist to perform" Two Steps "acoustically. In this issue the other musicians left the stage. They returned to perform "Rocket", "Bringing on the hardway", "Switch 625", "Hysteria", "Let's Get Rocked" and finally, "Pour some sugar on me".

With the guitar solos, energy, voices and attitude, the band that started in the late 70's showed he still has much to offer. In San Juan, he came to give the maximum, especially the drummer, who is crippled and played during the hour and a half long concert.

In the evening the guitarist Steve Brown replaced Vivian Campbell (Def Leppard guitarist officer) because the latter was again diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing treatment.
