WOW ..... !
Def Leppard blow WhiteSnake right out the areana

David Coverdale was frankly embarassing to watch. The band behind him were great and I am sure they where carrying as much of the vocals as they could get away with!! DC was having trouble getting a reaction from the room most of whom sat for the set and at one point he introduced a song turned to find the band had set up for something completely different. The video screen showed only a badly pixalated image of their logo most of the time ....
Hubby comment "Its like watching Barry Manalow backed by a great rock band "

Even the WhiteSnake fans sitting next to us were quite somber until the last two tracks .... Must have been WS fans coz they left before Def Leppard even started ! There was o encore as such ... the band went off and the lights came up.

Joe and the boys ROCKED WEMBERLY !
Starting with Rocket the whole of Wemberly went nuts ! The video show was on-par with BJB. Being a double header their set was far far too short. The three songs from the latest albumn went flat with much of the audance. Joe's voice was great. The whole band were so feeding off the feeling in the areana.
Finally they said good night and much of the rows behind us started to leave. Bad Actress had not been on so I knew it was worth waiting plus the lights had not come up ! Back they came for Bad Actress and Lets Get Rocked !!!!

WhiteSnake were the special guest support. It was the standard BJB line up we are used too ... a smaller band , a known support then the main attraction !!

Hubby said that the only band he knew who have done a better show than the Leps are BJB !!!

Sounds great Well, the Def Leppard part

I really wanna see Def Leppard sometime. Hopefully they'll release a new album quickly and tour on their own

Heh, it was funny when Coverdale got the song wrong

I enjoyed Whitesnake, despite not knowing much of their stuff. Even though it was pretty much the David Coverdale show, the band were talented and entertaining enough to keep me interested. I'm glad they played Here I Go Again and Still Of The Night when they did though, I was beginning to get quite restless (not to mention I didn't feel brilliant)

Def Leppard did rock! I think I preffered them on the Yeah! Tour 2 years ago (the placement of songs was better IMO, Let's Get Rocked near the beginning, and an encore of When Love And Hate Collide and Pour Some Sugar, but last night was still a blast. I agree, I love the visual aspect of their show, and their use of platforms for multiple levels (similar to Metallica) is good too, and the extended stage worked really well. Shame that the only song off the new album they played that I actually like was Bad Actress. All in all I was happy that I heard five songs that I haven't hear them do before: the three new songs, plus Two Steps Behind and Bringing On The Heartbreak. The latter in particular was fantastic, acoustic for most of it, with lots of crowd participation, and then blasting black into a blistering full electric ending.

I think the main problem of the entire night was that the lead vocals were too quiet. I could barely hear either Dave Coverdale or Joe Elliot over the backing vocals, which was a shame

Both bands rocked the Sheffield arena!!!!

I personally thought Whitesnake rocked more and sounded better. Doug Aldridge and Reb Beach's solo was amazing and Dave C sounded on top form!! Not bad for 56, he's still got it and rockin' his heart out! The new album rocks like a bastard too, much better than 9 Lives and even the new Motley Crue cd.

Whitesnake = 10 points

Def Leppard = 8 points

Motley Crue = 7 points

Maybe that was for the best though. He sounds like shit live.

Saw them last night in Cardiff. Fantastic night. Just forget about why Leppard feel they have to tour with other 80's bands just to fill an arena.

The first band were Thunder who were incredible. The lead singer, what a voice! I know very little of them apart from Dirty Love, but now I've ordered Back Street Symphoney cause alot of the songs played were from that album.

Then Whitesnake. First time seeing them aswell. Like some people here, I'm not huge on them even though I own all studio albums from Slide It In onwards (there were on offer on Play.com not long ago so I went a bit mad) but I knew they would be impressive.....and they were. David Coverdale was sensational despite the fact that he's almost 60 years old. It was great to see Reb Beach of Winger play aswell as I'm quite a Winger fan. Started off with Best Years from the new album, played all the hits and just sounded awesome.

Then finally, Def Leppard came on. Second time seeing them (first was in Hammersmith Apollo in 2006) and even though they didn't sound quite so awesome as the Snake, they still put on a great show. So so much energy. And plus they are one of my all time favourite bands (and I admire them as people aswell) so the buzz was even higher. Though they really only played the Vault album and only 3 from Songs From The Sparkle Lounge (Nine Lives , C'mon C'mon and Bad Actress), literally. In 2006 when I saw them they at least played Rock Rock (Til You Drop), Let It Go, Promises, but this time they didn't strey from Vault at all. I guess they haven't played Cardiff in about 10 years maybe more so they couldn't really afford do dig deep into the catalogue. Still a fantastic night though.

It really is great to see bands like that still playing as if emo never existed.

Thunder are an excellent band, and Back Street Symphony is a hell of an album!!

Make sure you listen to Love Walked In especially! And Higher Ground, and Don't Wait For Me, you''l love it!
