Heart/Def Leppard, Molson Amphitheatre, Toronto, ON

I had won two VIP box tickets to tonight's Heart/Def Leppard concert ... Toronto Mike had a contest that was sponsored by WagJag.

Here's Gord in our box. There were eight seats ... we had the two in the front on the left. The back four were empty.

Our seats were in front of the mixer ... here's Heart's song list for the night.

They start about 7:50pm and played 'til 9pm.

Heart has been around since the 1970s ... Nancy is 57 and Ann is 61. They sounded great! And Ann was still doing her high kicks!

They played a lot of their hits but also played a song from their new upcoming album.

Here are Gord and I during the concert.

The crowded loved them and had a good time.

Def Leppard came on at 9:30pm.

Here's their song list for the night.

As soon as the crowd realized that Def Leppard was coming on, they jumped up cheering and didn't sit down through the entire set.

And they didn't disappoint! They played for an hour and a half with a lot of visuals in the background and high energy and enthusiasm. Hard to believe they are in their 50s!

The crowd was full of fans who sang along, knowing all the words.

At the end, they were very classy. Rather than running off the stage, they thanked everyone for coming. They said that they hope they won't be forgotten because they won't forget us. And it was obvious that the crowd love love loved them!

My friend, Angie, is a big fan of Def Leppard and had the 5 star VIP Package. Looks like she had a fabulous experience!

I saw Heart and Journey there a couple of years ago - amazing! I was blown away by Heart and when they sang Love Reign it actually started raining! Just for the that song tho lol!

that is very cool that you got to see both those groups.
Harvey has lots of Heart on tape; it sure brings back memories to hear!
Live concerts are the best!

Oh my goodness! I'm laughing out loud. My sister and her fiance went two nights ago and saw this show in Detroit. They said it was fabulous!
