def leppard live! (reviews and pics - 56k no)

i saw def leppard last night, thus bringing my short-lived summer concert series to an end.

but anyway! let's focus more on the positive and less on the negative, right? the concert was at the mud island amphitheatre and was sold out. luckily, due to the time of the concert, the fact that we were on the river, and that we were slightly elevated, we had a breeze which helped cool things down until the sun set. unfortunately, the concert was general admission so we had rather crappy seats.

here's the stage. you can see the mississippi river as well as the downtown memphis skyline in the background


now, let's get down to the playlist:

action
let's get rocked
women
foolin'
hysteria
promises
no matter what
love bites
armageddon it
two steps behind
rock on
rocket
photograph
animal
rock of ages

bringin' on the heartbreak
pour some sugar on me


definitely a great playlist. bonus points were given to joe when he started yelling at these drunken assholes who decided when he was talking about the recent goings on in london would be a PERFECT time to start fighting! i mean drunken fights at a concert are retarded in the first place, but not when the lead singer is talking about such a serious subject!

also liked their covers of rock on and no matter what (omg i already knew the words to these songs). but i liked all of the songs.

unfortunately, this concert was not as scandalicious as my last concerts. oh well, such is life.

now, let's get down to the photos.
as before, i don't keep track or try to remember what photos were taken during what songs, so here's some random photos of the band!

I finally remembered to look in this thread. They played the same set list on Friday. Unfortunately I wasn't smart like you and didn't bring a camera! But I was also right up front so there's no way I could have gotten good pictures since there were tall people in front of me. It was a great show! Not my favorite that I've seen of them, the last show I was at a few years ago was better but it was still a good time! It's always fun to see them even if they're more of a nostalgia act than anything these days.

you, of all people, should know then, shuan vox, that those stacks are, in all likelihood, just for show.
