If you weren’t at the Def Leppard, Poison, and Tesla concert at Lakewood Amphitheatre on May 3rd, you missed out. The show was nearly sold out as fans were eager to see three of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s greatest bands.

Tesla opened right at seven with “Into the Now” and “Edison’s Medicine” and ended with a crowd favorite, “Modern Day Cowboy.”

The real rock show came when Poison opened with “Look What the Cat Dragged In” and “Ride the Wind.” Bret Michaels paid tribute to American soldiers with “Something to Believe In” and even rocked a harmonica solo. Poison ended with two classics: “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” and “Nothin’ but a Good Time” and received a standing ovation.

Fans were in for the best treat of the night when Def Leppard took the stage and opened with “Let’s Go” and “Animal.” Lead singer Joe Elliot had several wardrobe changes in between playing their biggest hits: “Love Bites,” “Hysteria,” and “Pour Some Sugar On Me.” At the end of the concert, the band disappeared for a several minutes but returned with an encore of “Rock of Ages” and “Photograph” to officially end the night.
