Rock Goddess were also-rans in the '80s and it's easy enough to see why here. There was nothing wrong with them. Indeed, they were all quite competent musicians, playing well. But somehow there was just something missing. The songs weren't particularly memorable, and while I enjoyed the performance, there was nothing to make it stand out compared to any number of others.

Lita Ford had last played in the UK in the '80s. I hadn't seen her then, and I'd been waiting nearly 30 years to see her performing live. Was it worth the wait? Yes, it was. She's aged incredibly well compared to her contemporaries, and can still hit the notes and play the guitar (despite breaking a couple of strings in the process). Highlights for me were "Larger than life", "Hungry", "Can't catch me" and the obligatory "Close my eyes forever" (with guitarist Patrick Kennison singing Ozzy's parts).
