Def Lep opened and was amazing as usual. It's clear they love what they do. They interact with the audience and each other. Joe can't hit the high notes like 10 years ago , but very close. Journey was a huge disappointment. The vocals were weak. Neal's ego was on full display as usual but doesn't have enough skill to warrant the ego. Lots of distortion during their set. I was in the 3rd row and by the time Journey started the 4th song half the seats were empty. Never would I pay money to see Journey. Def Lep worth every penny.

Def Leppard was on fire last night at the Forum. They played both to and with the audience. Their carefully crafted sound did not disappoint and left you wanting more. Great lights and visuals. I took my 11 year old son - never miss an opportunity to see a great life lesson about a one armed drummer. Journey, on the other hand was a life lesson of an entirely different kind. You were unable to hear any vocals and the distortion was off the charts. Visually, you could see Arnel trying to give it his all but you can't sing over a freight train headed for a wreck. Expected more from a band that should be able to play their hits in their sleep. There isn't a good review on the internet for the sound quality they're bringing with them. Get it together Journey. PS. If your headed to the Forum, get there early or you get to park in the gravel parking lot for the new football stadium - and its LA so you pay full parking price $25

Journey was ok, was disappointed Arnel couldn't hit the high notes, and the sound was meh for them. Def Leppard however started strong and stayed strong throughout, Joe Elliot is the man, hitting those highs with no problem. Great sound, so friendly with the crowd! What a great night, felt like I was back in 1988! Tons of Pyromania tunes, was worth every cent of the $220 per ticket row 28 on the floor. Most I have ever paid for a ticket, super worth it! I hadn't seen them since 1993!

I am a HUGE fan of both groups. Last night, I just couldn't. Journey was a huge disappointment. Their sound was equally just as messed up as their singing, too many solos (very uninteresting), no one wanted to sit through almost an hour of instrumentals. I have to hand it to the kid, he really tried although he looked like he was on something, couldn't get all the words out correctly nor hit the notes. Obviously no one can live up to "the original". Def Leppard on the other hand, were just as amazing last night as they were 30-35 years ago. They played last and absolutely stole the show. Hopefully next time they play together Journey goes on last so i know I won't have to suffer through their set and can get home at a decent hour. We were on the floor, nine rows back, but we didnt see much without straining because of where they were located. Far left side adjacent to the stage. Do not bring children unless you want them subjected to marajuana smoke and drunks. (Petco Park). 9/24/18

I admit that I'm a huge Def Leppard fan and have seen them 3 times in the past. All were fantastic shows but this one was even better. Sound, lighting, band energy, and crowd focused presentation were amazing! Our whole group (10 of us) loved them. I am also a big Journey fan and had never seen them before. I was really looking forward to what they were going to be like. Wow, they were boring! Neil Schon needs to get over himself. He can play the guitar but do we really need an out of place fast guitar riff in Faithfully? The sound was a mess. My wife commented about not being able to hear the vocals, which I couldn't hardly hear either. The singer tries, and jumps around like he's 1/2 the age of everybody else, but Neil just won't let him have any attention. Steve Smith gave an incredible drum solo. You, my man, have skills. The stage show was flat and the lightly only acceptable. Def Leppard destroyed it while Journey seemed to be going through the motions.

Def Leppard friggin' ROCKED the house!!! For men over 50, they sure demonstrated a LOT of energy and shared the glory with each member. Journey was good, but the sound was bad. Hard to hear Arnel over the loud guitars. Arnel was full of energy, but with a break between every son for a Neal solo, not great. Neal was good, but it was supposed to be about Journey, not just Neal.
