    On a positive note, I don’t believe Dennis D Young and his Brillo Pad hair-do are still part of Styx. Nothing better than going to see a band with a guy wearing a Miami Vice suit and a powdered wig.

    • Dana on


      Thank you for the belly laughs today. Priceless. LOL!

      D 🙂

    • MetalMania on

      Hey don’t be making fun of Miami Vice, that’s still cool, right?

  • Doug on

    Great bill! Should be fun.

  • Medved on

    Well this one might be worth going to see. It’s within reasonable traveling distance (Albuquerque). I haven’t seen Def Leppard since 1992 and Styx since 2004. I last saw Tesla when they opened for the Scorpions back in 2012. Now the only thing that can put a kibosh to this is if the tickets are outrageously high. Otherwise looks like I’ll have a road trip to plan come September.

  • James K. on

    I’m not all that interested in seeing Def Leppard any more. I just don’t like the music they’ve put out since their 80’s heyday. I’d love to see them do HIGH AND DRY live in its entirety. That’s still their best album all these decades later. It’s a good bill with Styx and Tesla. Hell, I’d go see those two bands if it were just them on tour together.

    • Dana on

      High N’ Dry or Pyromania, sign me up please. Speaking of which, what happened to the Pyromania residency Def Leppard were supposed to be doing in Vegas? I would definitely consider going “West young [wo]man” for that. 😀

      D 🙂

    • James K. on

      Them playing songs from the first three albums exclusively in one show would be an awesome experience, almost like going back in time. They did that during their last Vegas residency and I wished I could have seen it. All those old songs just rock harder than what came after them. When they did play the old songs during their last residency, didn’t they called themselves “Dead Flatbird”? So if Def Leppard doesn’t want to make a crunchy, hard rocking album like On Through The Night, High N’ Dry or Pyromania any more, maybe Dead Flatbird will one day.

    • MetalMania on

      Wow, yeah High N’ Dry (will never happen) or Pyromania in it’s entirety would get me there. Saw DL only once back in 2000 on the Euphoria tour (which truthfully, half of that album was pretty good), they played a handful off Pyromania but the only H n’D track was “Bringin’ on the Heartbreak”. I’ll probably always have just a small spark of hope that they’ll go retro and put out another great rock album, and load up the old stuff in the setlist, but realistically I think they’re too much of a pop band now and that’s what we’ll continue to get.

      For this tour, I don’t care much for Styx but Tesla is a great band. Glad to see them out on a big tour with hopefully big audiences.

    • Doug on

      I saw the Lepps in Colorado, want to say about 10 years ago, and they opened with “Let it Go,” off High n’ Dry. What a great tune. “Hello America” off their debut, now that would be a nice surprise for this tour.

  • michael monet on

    What is going on with that person in the middle? I had no idea Meg Ryan was in that band. I have been away for quite some time but guy is still shirtless. It is currently -9 degrees here in Middletown and that guy still isn’t wearing a freaking shirt. The show should be a killer as those are three great acts.

    • Red Barn on

      These guys look like a pack of pissed off Grandmothers! What with the guy with no shirt wearing make up?? He looks like Sideshow Bob with no hair! Def Leppard’s music turned to pop dog s–t after Pyromania. They fired Pete the guitarist who wrote all the hard rock hits! Now they try to shove songs from the sparkle lounge down our throats! Weak Ass Tour!

    • michael monet on

      They started out as teenagers and now you may refer to them as survivors all things considered. The HYSTERIA album was their blessing and curse. They went from the top up and coming rockers to an 80s hit machine and lost their identity. The first 3 albums are still great especially HIGH N DRY for me. HYSTERIA may have set them up for life financially but artistically it stands as a brick wall. It was as if they went from a Bon Scott AC/ DC sound to GEORGE MICHAEL with that commercial album. Too bad. Mutt Lange followed the quick cash and now 25+ years later rockers don’t care for them and neither do the 80s crowd. Vivian Campbell has HOLY DIVER on his resume but currently performs

    • michael monet on

      LOVE BITES…LOVE BREETHES…LOVE IS….LOVE CRIES ……LOVE IS. Vivian how do you live with yourself? You are from the same great country as Liam Neeson and you get HYSTERICAL WHEN YOU’RE NEAR. For God sakes man, go play THE LAST IN LINE or STRAIGHT THROUGH THE HEART. Imagine RJD singing: YOU GOT THE PEACHES/ I GOT THE CREAM/ SWEET TO TASTE/ SACCHARINE/ CAUSE I’M HOT SO HOT STICKY SWEET. Good grief and KISS ripped that s##t off on the postage stamp pyramid album.

    • michael monet on

      You know what? Forget all this. Back to DIO, if you haven’t heard the recently unearthed track ELECTRA you owe it to yourself to check that one out. In the same vein as STARGAZER or SIGN OF THE SOUTHERN CROSS. Quite epic indeed.
