Rockers Def Leppard, REO Speedwagon return for Boise concert

Deja vu, anyone? (By the way, shouldn’t Deja Vu have been the name of an ’80s metal band?) Yes, kids, Def Leppard is back in Boise. And, yes, they have brought along their pals REO Speedwagon. It’s almost as if the two bands are unable to leave the house without one another. But that’s OK. This simply means that fans are guaranteed a one-two punch of faintly cheesy but oh-so-memorable hits from the 1970s and 1980s. Whether it’s REO’s “Time for Me to Fly,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling” and fist-pumping “Ridin’ the Storm Out,” or Def Leppard’s “Let’s Get Rocked,” “Love Bites” or “Hysteria,” this promises to be a night of nothing but beer-spilling hits. P.S. Opening act Tesla might actually be the best band on the bill from a critical perspective, so show up on time. Seriously, “Modern Day Cowboy”? That is one killer rock song.
