Got to see Def Leppard last night at the Mohegan Sun Arena for the second time in the past three months. This was my favorite band growing up, and I really enjoyed getting a chance to see them rock again.
I was a little disappointed in the fact that their set list didn't change between the two shows. I was hoping that in the return visit they'd pull out some older stuff, I.E. "On Through the Night," or my all-time fave album, "High & Dry." But alas, it was another "Hysteria" heavy show. NOt complaining, though.
I was pleasantly surprised with Bryan Adams, who opened. (Tesla opened during the summer, and rocked, as always.) Bryan's voice sounded live, in 2005, exactly as it did on vinyl in 1982. His set list was very good (laid off his cheesier ballads) and he even directed the fans sitting in the upper decks to charge down to the stage and "fill up the aisles" just to get back at security for hassling his girlfriend. He created a very cool, rock n' roll atmosphere. I'd actually recommend his shows to anyone who enjoys a no frills rock n' roll show.
Oh yeah, some things never change. The hottest women, by far, can be found at rock concerts. Don't bother arguing.
Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...
