Poison, Def Leppard, Cheap Trick in Boston

Def Leppard/Poison/Cheap Trick rolled into the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA Tuesday night performing to a near capacity crowd. The audience spanned a generation, as families brought their children to see the two legendary 80's metal bands that are still at the top of their game today.

Kicking off the nights festivities at 6:45 P.M., Cheap Trick hit the stage for a colorful set, as guitarist Rick Nielsen dressed in a pink suit and 5 neck yellow plaid guitar cranked out the catchy riffs of "I Want You To Want Me", and "Surrender". Singer Robin Zander sporting a white hat was in good voice. Highlight of the Cheap Trick set was their hit ballad "The Flame".

"Rock of Love's" Bret Michaels and his band Poison hit the stage at 8 P.M. performing a 60-minute set of pure infectious pop.
