Catchy rock songs often have a blazing guitar riff, a sing-along chorus, and subliminal messages about getting out of your small town. Get hooked with this GrouponLive deal to see Def Leppard, Poison, and Lita Ford on their Rock of Ages Tour 2012 at the First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown on Tuesday, August 14, at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.

Generation gaps call an evening-long truce to absorb the electric harmonies and magnetic energy of legendary rock bands Def Leppard and Poison. Def Leppard began its ascent to British hard-rock royalty in 1977, solidifying its reign with the 1987 multiplatinum album Hysteria and its iconic anthems "Love Bites" and "Armageddon It." Its latest tour stokes nostalgia and then pours sugar on it, with library classics giving way to singles such as "Undefeated" from the Mirror Ball — Live & More album.
Also taking the stage, Bret Michaels, C.C. DeVille, Bobby Dall, and Rikki Rockett rekindle the chemistry first brewed 26 years ago when Poison conjured up its debut album, Look What the Cat Dragged In. Ever the showman, Michaels still charms audiences with the brash “Talk Dirty to Me” before casting the crowd into a unified, swaying throng of a choir with “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” Rounding out the bill, Lita Ford showcases the chops that have led to her being dubbed the Queen of Metal, a title tied to an honorific crown forged out of leather and the broken hearts of countless roadies.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
First Niagara Pavilion
Under the sprawling roof of First Niagara Pavilion, music greats such as Billy Joel, Rush, and Jimmy Buffett have all taken over the stage as fans throughout the amphitheater space watch, transfixed. Whether enjoying the show from the open-air pavilion or the verdant lawn, concertgoers demonstrate their love for the performers by dancing along to the music or holding up lighters engraved with the lead singer’s astrological sign.
