Record Mirror - February 1981
Hammersmith Odeon review - Philip Hall

At a packed Odeon there were bikers, skins, punx and Barry Normal's all keeping the legend alive.
When Slade hit the stage amid a kaleidoscope of coloured lights the atmosphere in the Odeon was similar to the Kop after Liverpool had just scored. It was as though the clock had been turned back five years and Slade were still a supergroup making a rare appearance.
Slade's stage presence is so powerful that you are pulled into their brash rock 'n' roll world whether you like it or not.
All the hits were there and if the new single 'We'll Bring The House Down' was anything to go by then Slade could at last be in command of the charts again.
