Pure Grain Audio - Concert Review Quotes

"You see, the thing about Hysteria is that it was polished (too much some would say) but it put the band on the world rock map as a household name and, even now, thirty+ years later, the Sheffield rockers don't put a foot wrong during this immaculate demonstration of classic rock. "Rocket", "Animal", "Pour Some Sugar On Me", as they did back in the '80s, the hits just keep pouring out from the band with this packed house lapping up every minute of it."

"A touching tribute to (the sadly no longer with us) Steve Clarke preludes "Gods Of War" while "Love Bites" was the perfect example of the kind of '80s rock ballad that peppered the charts during that era. Yes, it's pure cheese but damn, watching Vivian Campbell calmly rocking out, Joe Elliot pulling all the textbook rockstar poses and Rick Savage strutting about all denim and blonde hair, it’s exactly how we remember it from the first time around."
