San Francisco, CA - Media Reviews

The Stadium Tour By Riff Magazine

Elliott triumphantly announced the band’s latest record, Diamond Star Halos, produced remotely over the pandemic as a sign of the band’s resiliency. Def Leppard broke out “Kick,” “Take What You Want” and “This Guitar.” The challenge, after a long day of music—on a school night!—was keeping the crowd’s focus. Just as it seemed the momentum was waning, the band turned to its bread and butter, closing out with a triumphant finale of “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” “Rock of Ages” and “Photograph.”

The Stadium Tour By Mercury News

Def Leppard thankfully closed the roughly six-hour show in fine fashion, offering up a 17-song nightcap filled with some of the most beloved pop-metal songs of the ’80s.

It was basically hit after hit after hit (plus a few mediocre new songs) as the group — featuring vocalist Joe Elliott, bassist Rick Savage, drummer Rick Allen and the great guitar combo of Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell — thrilled the fans with the likes of “Let It Go,” “Armageddon It,” “Bringin’ On the Heartbreak” and “Hysteria.”
