We were on the field 20 rows back to the right of the stage. Joan Jett and Poison sounded awesome, but can't say the same for Def Leppard and Motley Crue. The bass was cranked way too much and drowned everything else out. We couldn't hear the vocals or details in the music clearly due to the overpowering bass. It's a bummer because other folks here posted similar experiences in other venues, and one would think the sound engineers would have fixed the bass-heavy saturation problem by now as the 2nd half of the tour kicks off...

I have to say for a bunch of aging rockers these groups were amazing .sound was right on and lights were off the chart .

Def Leppard and Poison were awesome. Against my better judgment decided to give Crue another shot. Time to hang it up boys - sound was terrible, mixed up the lyrics, bass over powering everything and they looked as if they were just going through the motions. No energy at all. So sad because I am a real time I will stick to watching the Carnival Sins DVD at home

Finally got to see Joan Jett and she was awesome! She and the band sounded great and looked like they were having a good time. Poison sounded great, high energy show. Fun set. Have seen Def Leppard a few times, and they definitely did not disappoint! Vocals were great, and the band sounded excellent. This leaves the Crue... I promised myself that I wouldn't go to another one of their concerts. The last time I saw them, we thought there were problems with Vince's mic, but nope, it seemed to work fine when he talked. I get why they turned his mic down back then. He sounded pretty bad. The rest of the fellas did their best, but I think even they recognize that Vince's voice is toast. I thought they signed a contract not to perform again?! We left early because it was too sad.

Joan Jett (7/10) was solid as the 63 year old queen of punk belted out some of her best known tunes. The sound at the Rogers Centre did not do any of the bands justice but that's what one gets at that venue. Poison (7/10) ramped the show up with great energy and fanfair. At times Michaels appeared to be lip syncing as he truly no longer has the pipes of old. Joe Elliott and Def Leppard (9/10) rocked the house. Having seen the band 5 years previous, where Joe had a terrible performance I was concerned he would be worse but I was quickly proven wrong as he and the boys lit the Rogers Centre up with old favourites and even some knew tracks from their recent album. On comes Motley Crue (4/10). At first I didnt even know they had started as it was so rough sounding. Vince Neil looked disinterested and was singing at a frantic pace, trying to end the set as quick as possible. The sound mix was horrid, with the bass drowning out Vince consistently. We left after 5 songs.

The shows were pretty much all amazing. Joan Jett was spectacular! Poison was great, so much energy and Def Leppard well, I have never ever been disappointed! Crue, well, thank goodness for for everyone but Vince! Vince was completely off beat and sounded like Alvin from the Chipmunks. Honestly, it wore on the nerves quickly. Everyone else was amazing. Tommy Lee always stellar! Mick is a class act, Nikki fabulous. The girls worked their asses off, literally and sounded great! Sound and lights by all acts were supreme!

Def Leppard stole the show, great energy of the fans through performance. So many hits, such a fabulous band, still wonderful on stage. All entertainers were saying how thrilled they were to be there and had a great time. Poison was awesome, what a personality Brett Michaels showed, great frontman and "host" for their set. Motley Crue rocked out, my fav band, so awesome to have original members! Vince Neil's timing on lyrics was crappy, songs sounded different as he rushed the lyrics and sometimes skipped some! WTF?? Disappointing when the rest of the band was consistent and great energy. Nikki Sixx was in his element and spot on! The sound and video was phenomenal until Motley Crue, dry ice meant video was fuzzy and total sound wasn't as crisp and clear. Some fans started leaving through Motley Crue, while Def Leppard had everyone on their feet and wanting more! Huge crowd, stage was farther away than some concerts to accommodate the crowd.
