Def Leppard rocked the ages at Cedar Park Center (pics)

Def Leppard‘s Rock of Ages tour came to Cedar Park Center on Tuesday (9/4), bringing with it Poison, and Lita Ford. Really wanted to shoot all three, however I wasn’t able to get requests in with enough notice for Lita Ford (who also played Waterloo Records earlier in the day) and Poison. I did see Brett Michaels and C.C. Deville outside the venue before they were to take the stage, and then I could hear the uproarious cheers with each new song during Poison’s set.

My 12-year-old self and even my current self were excited to catch Joe Elliott (who I share a birthday with), Rick Allen, Phil Collen, Rick Savage, and Vivian Campbell – better known as Def Leppard – from the photo pit. They didn’t disappoint, and after 2 songs my time was done. It was a quick, tough shoot (penned in a 3ft x 8ft space filled with security, photographers, video cameramen, and other gear), but I’m glad I made the trip. DL isn’t Fa-Fa-Fa-Foolin’ around.

Next time I plan to enlist some help, and make a full show of it.
