I will gut this out and drum until I can't drum no more!" which apparently lasted 30 minutes until he gave up his drum sticks to Tommy Klufetos, who had secretly been rehearsing with them for the last 2 weeks.

It's weird because he came out before the show to explain what was going on with him to the audience and he seemed chipper as all get out. Maybe he found a doctor with a loose prescription pad.

I'm almost positive that's incorrect.  Even setlist.fm lists Tommy as the drummer for the first 5 songs, then he comes back to play piano and drums on "Home Sweet Home" (song #10) and then disappears again.

About to hop in the car and head to Citi Field now. Here goes nothing.

My first time ever at Citi Field btw after going to Shea a couple dozen times.

Brief concert review.  Traffic and parking were a bitch.  We planned to get there at 4:30 and made it 5:00, which shouldn't have been a big deal.  The no-name openers Classless Act were supposed to go on at 4:30.  Apparently they played to an empty stadium closer to 3:30, and Joan Jett went on at 4:30 ad was already halfway through her set when we got there, with the stadium still mostly empty.  It would've been impossible to get there much earlier.

Anyway, Jett was very good and we heard all her big hits:  “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll”, “I Hate Myself For Loving You”, and “Bad Reputation”.  The only one I wanted to hear that I missed was The Runaways' "Cherry Pie".  This is my 3rd time seeing her and she never changes the set much.  She played an hour.

Next up was Poison, who everyone has been saying was the highlight of this tour.  They were right.  They sounded amazing and did a greatest hits setlist that was high energy and had everyone dancing and singing along to every word.  Michaels sounded so happy to be there and be performing in front of such a large crowd again, and his enthusiasm was contagious.  He thanked the other bands for having him, he promoted Classless Act's new album (which was a classy move), he thanked the roadies and the crew, he thanked everyone.  And he and CC sounded amazing.  They did an hour as well, which is only 10 minutes shy of how long they do as a headliner, so we basically got a full Poison show and it was fantastic.  And the stadium had mostly filled up within the first few minutes of their set, so fans stopped their tailgating and wanted to see them.

The co-headliners alternate who goes on last, and this time it was Motley Crue coming up next.  I don’t know how much “help” he had, but Vince Neil sounded fine, much better than his disastrous solo shows.  Tommy Lee played the first 3 songs before passing the drum sticks to Tommy Klufetos due to his broken ribs.  Based on the T-shirts and crowd reaction, I'd say they drew most of the fans.  They did a full 90 minutes, and other than the fact that Neil looked like a dead ringer for Sam Kinison, I never noticed him losing his breath or skipping over many lyrics (maybe a few), but like I said I suspect there were backing tracks at play here.  Still, a very solid performance and given all that's happened, no one could feel disappointed by what they heard. 

Finally we had Def Leppard, who came on precisely at 9:30 PM and got off exactly at 11:00 PM.  This one was tough.  They sounded good but it was a boring as fuck setlist.  They started off with 2 new songs and 4 of the first 9 wound up being new.  They were really pushing this new album that no one is going to buy, and it was out of place on what was a nostalgia show.  Then to make matters worse, they did a 3-song acoustic set in the middle which was putting me to sleep.  It wasn’t until song #12 with “Rocket” that I felt the set really started, and then it was almost over.  I enjoyed the last 3 they played, “Pour Some Sugar On Me”, “Rock of Ages”, and “Photograph”, but it was a long day/night and Def Leppard was the least electrifying on the whole show.  I just wasn’t feeling them this time.  They were the band I was least concerned about going in, and they wound up being the ones that just didn't bring it IMO. 

Overall, you can't beat 6 hours of solid rock and roll goodness, even for the heft pricetag (plus $50 parking, $25 mixed drinks, and $50 shirts).  It was worth the wait and I'm glad I saw the show early in the tour because I'm still not convinced they'll get through the whole thing.  But it was a good time.

Leppard's setlist bored me just by reading it. No songs from On Through The Night....fuck dat. You hit it right on the head when you said they're playing stuff from a new album no one will buy.


This tour will be known as the C.C. DeVille resurrection tour. He's is doing the rarest thing in rock and roll. A seasoned and stage worn guitarist has actually improved in his old age. I'll bet no one here can name another instance of that happening.


I know Joan is laughing all the way to the bank but it must be so mentally draining to play in a ballpark in broad daylight in front of 200 people day in and day out. As bad as Joan has it, that opening act, who is supposed to be pretty good btw, is probably playing to only stadium employees. I'll also bet they paid to play too.


Fuck the $50 parking. That is literally criminal.

Bret Michaels has been hospitalized with either Covid or an allergic reaction to medication, depending on which sources you believe, so Poison did not play last night in Nashville. That's a shame because Poison has been killing it this tour. No word on how many stops they're planning on missing.

But Tommy Lee has played the entire Crue show the last 2 stops and is not being replaced by Tommy Klufetos anymore.
