Adrenalize – The Ultimate Def Leppard Experience

Drawing their name from Def Leppard’s fifth studio album, ADRENALIZE – The Ultimate Def Leppard Experience recreates the chart-topping, chest-thumping anthems that made Def Leppard the iconic and dominant force in arena rock of the ‘80s and beyond. You'll hear the hook-laden radio and MTV mega-hits like "Foolin'", "Rock of Ages," “Photograph,” “Hysteria,” "Rocket," "Animal," “Armageddon It,” "Love Bites," and "Pour Some Sugar On Me," along with deep cuts like "Wasted," "High 'n' Dry," and "Switch 625!"   No rock band epitomized the spirit of the ‘80s more than Def Leppard. Fusing the hard edge of heavy metal to a melodic pop sensibility, the British rockers dominated that decade with two classic albums- 1983’s Pyromania and 1987’s Hysteria- whose massive sales were fueled by the band’s near-constant presence on MTV.   See the road tested and accomplished stage performers of ADRENALIZE – The Ultimate Def Leppard Experience embody the swaggering, electrifying stage personae of the Lads from Sheffield, and their undeniable intensity will captivate you and leave you singing, fist pumping, and screaming for more!

Great White // Slaughter

For Great White to continue to thrive 40 years in the music business, the mantra must be, these songs are bigger than any one member. GRAMMY nominated hard rock legends, Great White, are adding onto that line with the saying: expect the unexpected. It’s rock and roll, baby. The peaks and the valleys haven’t stopped– nor has the music. Great White’s ride runs deep and its passion for the music goes beyond any depth. To experience their hits live in concert - “Rock Me,” “Mista Bone,” “Save Your Love,” “House of Broken Love,” and “Lady Red Light”—is to ride an emotional wave of sultry connections, arousing lyrics, and an all-out marathon of hard-hitting orchestrations. Audiences might also hear tracks like “Stick It”, “The Angel Song”, “Big Time” or one of the many deep cuts from Great White’s 13 studio albums. 1990 SLAUGHTER hit radio, MTV and the U.S. touring circuit like a tornado- coming seemingly out of nowhere to roll through everything in its path and turn it upside down. Touring the world with bands that they loved, Kiss, Ozzy, and others meant the good times were just a song away, and their first hit single, "Up All Night" certainly fit into that mold, their second chart-topper, "Fly To The Angels" was more representative of the spirituality and awareness that goes into most of the band's music and lyrics. But never were SLAUGHTER more accurately represented that live onstage in front of their legions of devoted fans over the last ten years!  SLAUGHTER has shown that with perseverance and sheer talent, a band can survive and win over the support of fans, regardless of what others may say about the quality of their music. What's most important is that their music is still here and the vast majority of critics who panned them in the past are not, and that's as good as gold.
