Xav comes to visit

Marlee just ran around and licked him. Xavier was not scared at all. He just closed his eyes when Marlee came by, knowing he would get a lick or a flick of the wagging tail.

Meeting Rick Allen

Such a nice guy. He was very generous with his time and gave us a very relaxed tour backstage. We also met Phil Collen, who was also a nice guy in the brief moment he spent with us. 
Rick was a really genuine, grounded person and spent the time to sign autographs and take photos. What an experience. 
Proceeds of the Meet and Greet went to The Raven Drum Foundation.

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.

Def Leppard - Melbourne

The Russo's and I went to see Def Leppard at Rod Laver Arena. We had 2nd row seats and we had an amazing time.

Up close and personal with the band.

What a night!
