Journey and Def Leppard Concert

It was the perfect night for an outdoor concert. At 6:30 p.m., cars were already lined up to get in to see the concert of the evening. Journey and Def Leppard were performing at Verizon Amphitheater located just outside of Kansas City. Some of the people in attendance were sporting their clothing from the 70’s and 80’s. Everyone was ready to go back in time.

Journey was the first to perform, and they were great as always. Not only did they sing their new songs, they also went back in time and performed all of their older songs which was a crowd pleaser. Singing songs like Open Arms, Faithfully, Wheel in the Sky, Any Way You Want It and Don’t Stop Believin’ brought back memories for everyone. They also took the time to dedicate the song “When the Lights Go Down in the City” to Steve Irwin in regards to his untimely death. After 30 years, they still know how to perform.

After over an hour of continuous play, it was time for Def Leppard to take the stage. With a new album coming out, it was the perfect opportunity to play some new songs from their album. They still know how to rock and roll. Joe Elliot, lead singer, was as good as ever. Moving from one side of the stage to the other, he put on a great show. Then, just watching Rick Allen is amazing. The way he can play those drums with one arm is incredible.

This is one show that will not be forgotten. These two groups came out and performed to a packed crowd. There was not an open space anywhere to be had. For those of us growing up in the 70’s and 80’s, it was a great time had by all!
