Was excited about this show as never seen def leppard (one of a few bands still left to see). Seen Motley crue a few times and not too bothered about them and steel panther are awesome, i've seen them many times.

Venue Wembley

Doors 17:30


Steel Panther - 18:30 - 19:05

In The Future
1.Supersonic Sex Machine
2.Tomorrow Night
3.Asian Hooker
4.Just Like Tiger Woods
5.Guitar Solo (included bit of eruption)
6.Gold-Digging Whore
7.Community Property
8.17 Girls In A Row
9.Death to all but Metal

Didn't disappoint at all, great band to open this show. Was a little apprehensive as i thought the new album wasn't as good as their first but sounds so much better live. Also the last couple of times i saw them play they kept repeating their jokes, but came up with some newer material.

Also during Death to all but metal they sang; "wher is Def leppard, where is motley crue, waiting backstage, ready to rock for you" (or something along those lines)

Motley Crue - 19:30 - 20:55

1.Wild Side
2.Saints of Los Angeles
3.Live Wire
4.Shout at the Devil
5.Same Ol' Situation (S.O.S.)
6.Primal Scream
7.Home Sweet Home
8.Looks That Kill
9.Drum Solo
10.Guitar Solo
11.Dr. Feelgood
12.Mutherfucker of the Year
13.Girls, Girls, Girls
14.Smokin' In The Boys Room
(Brownsville Station cover)
15.Kickstart My Heart

Dont want to go into a rant about these cos the crowd went crazy for these, but I just cant stand them, thought it might be different as ive only seen them outside at a couple of festivals, but thought in an arena they might be better.
They had a good production set up; pyrothecnics, drum roller coaster etc but they are just so untalented as musicians (IMO). Never seen the hype with motley crue...i know they were at the start of the scene - 80's sunset strip, dont mind a couple of songs, but lyrics are shit, riffs are shit, attitude is shit.

Drum solo lasted for around 5 mins - he just played his drums to some shitty drum and bass, thought the Def leppard drummer done a better 3 min solo with just 1 hand lol.
Guitar solo sounded like shit too. Anyway sorry for slagging these off so much.

Def leppard - 21:30 - 23:00

1.Undefeated
2.Rocket
3.Action
(Sweet cover)
4.Let It Go
5.C'mon C'mon

9.Bringin' on the Heartbreak

10.Switch 625
11.Hysteria
12.Animal
13.Armageddon It
14.Photograph
15.Pour Some Sugar on Me
Encore:
16.Love Bites
17.Let's Get Rocked

Def leppard were awesome, dunno how they keep going (mentioned they going to tour again and release a new album). Very satisfied with the set but wish they could've played made love like a man and foolin'
Would like to see these again and on the whole, was a great gig.

Oh shit!! That would have been one dirty show right now. I need more Panther and Crue in my life. I should go see them one Monday soon.

Wow. Now there's a pair of boring, unchanged-for-a-decade setlists for you.

I'm kinda surprised they didn't play Rock Of Ages.. other than that great set. The Crue set is the same I saw this summer.. but still amazing

Define "amazing"... because playing the same old songs they've been playing for the last 10 years doesn't seem very amazing to me...

How did Motley Crue allow their egos to play before Def Lep. By that to be clear im not sayign they should or shouldnt but they have massive egos. I remember when Crue were at their lowest and KISS asked them to open on their big buzz reuionon shows and Nikki Sixx went off, and it was laughable

This was in England where Leppard is from and this is their tour so that might have something to do with it. Plus, Pyromania and Hysteria have sold more copies than any album Crue has come out with.

Even if they toured America together Def Leppard would more than likely headline over them.

Crue could probably play the same sized venues in London as Leppard on their own, but not the ones elsewhere in the UK. This would definitely be the only way they'd be able to do a tour of this size.

I couldn't agree more. What happened to the fans voting for the setlists? I've see Crue 3 times in the last 5 years and that is the same goddamned setlist! Talk about uninspired.

I agree with the motley Cre set being flagged off cos I've seen the same set a couple of times but def lappard have rotated a bit, plus first time seeing them. I think they still sell out shows cos they always seem to have a popular supporting band, headlining download twice in two years and I think whitesnake supported them on there last tour

The worst thing about this London setlist is that Gods Of War was droppped from the set! They had been playing it on this tour! :mad:

I had said before they should start playing this song plus other killer tracks like Die Hard The Hunter, Tear It Down, Stagefright, the whole side A of High N Dry and even more songs from the first album!! Enough of the hits damn it!!
