AZ Central - Online Review Quotes

"The two guitarists - Vivian Campbell and Collen, who must save a fortune on shirts - also had plenty of time flex their chops on “Switch 625.” But there was no shortage of opportunities for them to shine throughout the set, taking turns in the spotlight at every turn, it seemed, and joining forces to harmonize on the classic lead that introduces “Bringin’ On the Heartbreak,” which went on to feature one of Campbell’s most majestic leads."

"Joe Elliot’s vocals seemed to have been tucked a little lower in the mix when he went for the high notes, but he sounded great on “Love Bites,” the soulful power ballad from “Hysteria” that took the U.K. rockers to the top of Billboard’s Hot 100. And he was ably assisted by his bandmates in recreating the wall of harmonies that helped define their sound back in the ’80s."

This and other archive concert reviews can be found on the show pages in the Tour History.
