Def Leppard Shows Postponed

Def Leppard has postponed their show tonight in Nashville and tomorrow's gig in Birmingham because of a "family bereavement." The band is currently on tour with Cheap Trick and Poison.


Here's Def Leppard just two weeks ago in St. Louis. Have you seen Def Leppard on this tour? How do they sound?

honestly the sound shite joe elliot can't sing nomore, he is fat and old. But instrumental it's good, and if you are a fan you like it anyways, they don't play any song's that would suprise you.
But it's a good rock n roll show, if you know what i mean?

I saw Def Leppard/Poison on Friday (Raleigh, NC). I'm a big Poison fan and a casual Def Leppard fan, but have to say Def Leppard sounded great and put on a great show. Poison on the other hand, did there usual "phoned in" performance of the same set they play year after year. Brett was "plugging" Rock Of Love and it's obvious that Poison is now an afterthought to his solo/T.V. career.

I saw the show in Toronto on July 4th and both bands sounded terrific, Def Leppard especially. I've always been a casual Def Leppard fan and this was the first time that I saw them -- to say that they impressed me would be an understatement.

The only downside of the show was that the physical condition of the 40-somethings Phil Collen & Vivian Campbell put me to absolute shame.

I saw in Toronto as well, but was told that being on the lawns is what made Joe sound like crap (shounded like he sang out of key a lot - too low). Friends in the seats said he sounded good.

Boy am I glad i saw them at Nissan last month. I like Byron thought Poison phoned it in, but DL definately impressed me.

Saw this show in Phoenix tonight, Poison was god-awful, just as bad as can be. Some leeway can be given because Dall was sick so Cinderellas bassist filled in and CC's mic was turned waaaay up for back up vocals and he's horrid- that being said, there is no excusing Brets voice. It's tired. He's tired. He's been touring for like 3 years straight now. Take some time off, man.

Def Lep was amazing- easily the best I have ever seen from them as far as an all around show goes. Of course, this could be because Poison was so bad, but I don't think so. I loved the acoustic to electric way of doing Bringin on the heartbreak. It seemed like Joe was actually making an effort to really sing, I loved the whole show.

We saw the Cheap Trick/PoisonlDef Leppard show in St. Louis last July. Cheap Trick sounded great!! Poison was awesome -- Bret had a connection with St. Louis and totally delivered an aweosme concert! Their sound was balanced and they rocked!!!!!!
Def Leppard sounded wonderful for the first 4 songs. For some reason the guy on the sound board (two rows ahead of us) pushed all the controls to max and about blew our ears out!!! Total distortion!! We were under roof just behind the boxes! There are huge speakers for the lawn -- didn't need to turn the inside ones up!! It was a perfect evening temp-wise and no wind! My fault -- didn't bring ear plugs!!! Mosr disappointing after the first two and bands' sound was so well balanced!! :(( Not Lep's fault!!!
