  • I went to the Allstate Arena in Rosemont Illinois on July 19,2012 for the Rock of Ages tour. I haven't been to a rock concert for a long time. My son was with me. We got in with no one looking at our tickets!! There is a way to do it but I don't want to say it on here cause other people would do it. Could not believe all the people buying beer!!! Our seats were on the second floor. I was surprised that there were no Rock of Ages programs!!! T-shirts were too expensive!!! I am disabled. I have a ruptured arm. I could not believe there are not any railings in between the stairs going to the row we had to go to. I almost fell several times going to my seat. There were no workers around to guide you in the sections. People got very drunk & were off balance walking on the stairs. Poison was great. After they finished playing,there was a break & many were going to the bathroom & brought lots of beer back! I do not drink alcohol. I was amused by all the drunk people around me. Def Leppard is my favorite band & it was one of my dreams, to see them in concert! They were fantastic! I went to the bathroom & was lucky to get a stall that had toilet paper. Women were complaining about there not being toilet paper. When I went to wash my hands there was no soap. When I walked out there was a long line of mostly DRUNK women & I told them there was no toilet paper! (Someone should have gone in the womens bathrooms after Def Leppard started to play!) We took the elevator down cause people were spilling beer on the stairs & falling all over! Went to ask security officers where I could make some complaint & they were DRUNK!!!! I can,t believe how unsanitary it is there & how dangerous walking on the stairs is with no railings or rubber pads on the other stairs where people were falling & couldn't get up! Also ,there were cops all over & they could see how drunk people were & they were going to drive their cars!!! Of course people got in accidents!!! What a SHAME that this is happening & no one is doing anything about this!! I can see that Allstate Arena is making tons of money on beer!!! For safety reasons they need to put in guard railings in between the rows of seats & rubber padding on the stairs so people won't fall like they were cause someone spilled beer on them!! I will not ever go there again!!!!

  • Hi Cindy,

    I agree all three bands put on a great show but sorry the venue left you with a bad taste in your mouth. Hopefully the show wasn't too overshadowed by the rest of your experience. Also, hope you like the photos.

  • Hi Berry,
    Great shots. I am also a photographer by passion for couple years now.
    Def Leppard is my favorite band and I was able to get some good shots of them that night from where I was.
    Can you tell me how can I get a photo pass to some of this shows.
