Default So I saw Def Leppard the other night......

I've seen them probably a dozen or so times in the past. Always been one of my favorite groups. A few notes from the show:

1.They sounded EXACTLY like they do on Mirrorball. Since when does Joe Elliot sound so good live? Either it was playback, or this is the tightest band I've ever seen.

2.Sav - It's not 1987 anymore dude. Lose the do.

3.Phil - Put a damn shirt on, spit out the gum, and stop prancing around like you're a God.

4.Maybe I'm just getting old, but they need new sound techs. It was like listening to the loudest radio possible with the treble turned up to the highest level possible. My ears are still ringing.

5.Richie and Hugh could learn a thing or 2 from Sav, Vivian and Phil in terms of utilizing the entire stage.

FTR, Heart opened up. I've always been a fan but never seen them live. They were fantastic. Sounded great, and let's face it, Nancy Wilson is one of the sexiest rock chics ever.

I gotta find out if they're really playing or not on this tour. I've seen them many times. Sometimes, Joe is OK. Others, he's awful. He sounded just too perfect thia time.

The all request hour, the girl in the front row has just asked for Blood on Blood, ok, Merry Christmas young lady!" Amazing <3

Def Lep and Heart are touring Oz later this year. Saw Def Lep in 2008, I enjoyed it (and Joe sounded ok) but I'm undecided on whether I'd go again.

Heart was worth it. Their set was great. From what I recall:

Never
What About Love
These Dreams
Alone
You're The Voice
Barracuda
Magic Man
WTF
Crazy On You

Couple others I didn't know.
