Def Leppard - Newcastle

So one show just wasn't enough for me. Afterall, it was 16 years ago that Def Leppard last toured, so I had to get as much as I could in case they never come back again!
So I bought a VIP package on eBay that was a Meet and Greet with Rick Allen (drummer) in Newcastle. Crazy but true: in 24 hours I flew to Newcastle (via Brisbane) and met up with John at the venue. We were then taken backstage where we met Rick, who gave us a tour of backstage. We watched the show almost front row again. Then early the next morning I flew back to Melbourne. A whirlwind 24 hours.
