Halden - Media Reviews

Def Leppard's natural high in Norway By Tine Johansen

Def Leppard are whipping up a storm across the globe as they get ready for their home-coming performance at Sheffield Arena next month. The band played to great reviews during a concert in Norway this weekend and left one journalist asking: "Why do you need drugs when a concert like this can make you high?"

"Both bikers, primary shool pupils, house wives and rebels could be spotted in the audience," the journalist continues.

Def Leppard played in Halden, a small Norwegian town in the South of Norway close to the Swedish border, on Saturday.

The local journalist gave the band five out of a possible six points in the review and wrote: "You will have to look for a long time to find something this good".

Def Leppard started off with 'Nine Lives', continued with 'Love bites', but the big hits of the night were reported to be 'Pour some sugar on me', 'Hysteria' and 'Fooling'.

"Their great contact with the audience throughout the concert confirms that this music is much better live than in the record player", writes the journalist.

"With a drive like this the old men will not have to retire for a long time, because there is potential for years to come," she writes.

Tickets are now on sale for Def Leppard and Whitesnake performing at Sheffield Arena on June 23.
