Even though the summer is almost over I still managed to fit in one more outdoor concert! Tonight I went to see Def Leppard at the Usana Amphitheater with my cousin Megan! It was so much fun! The opening band was Heart and I had forgotten how much I really like them! Ann Wilson can still belt out a power ballad and I was really happy to hear some of their earliest hits including "Magic Man," "Crazy On You," "Straight On," and, of course, "Barracuda." Then they played "What About Love" and "These Dreams" from my very favorite album Heart. Finally, they sang an incredible rendition of "Alone." Wow! Then the lads from Sheffield took the stage and I basically took a time machine back to the 1980s! I absolutely loved Def Leppard when I was in high school and I played the album Hysteria over and over! They came out with "Let's Get Rocked" and then proceeded to play all of the hits including "Animal," "Love Bites," "Foolin'," "Photograph," "Two Steps Behind," "Hysteria," "Rocket," and "Armageddon It." I think my favorite part of the evening was an amazing acoustic version of "Bringin' on the Heartbreak." It was epic! They ended the show with "Pour Some Sugar on Me" and then came back with "Rock of Ages" for the encore. I loved every single minute of it! In fact, both Megan and I thought it went by much too fast!
Note: I had such a great time with Megan! We talked and talked! I didn't spend as much time with my Johnson cousins as I did my Anderson cousins while growing up but Megan and I definitely want to change that!
