First major headliner for this year’s edition of Sweden Rock are Def Leppard. This is Def Lep’s fourth appearance at the festival and 2015 was the last time they played Sweden. What to say about this show? Well it wasn’t as good as the last one they rocked at the festival. Songwise everything seems A+ but singer Joe Elliott really performs far below average. He doesn’t seem to reach the higher notes anymore and that’s been the case for some time now. The other musicians seem to be going through the songs on automatic pilot. Something doesn’t sound right. Still the Sweden Rock audience gets to hear some great tracks as opening song Rocket, Animal, Foolin’, Let’s Get Rocked and many many more. Playing seventeen songs from seven different albums and a cover Rock On by David Essex for a crowd of 30000 people isn’t nearly enough to send people home or to their tents with an overwhelming feeling. What a pity!
