Sleaze Roxx caught Last In Line performing live at the M3 Rock Festival on May 5, 2018 and stated in its review:
“Tyketto’s Danny Vaughn is a great singer. Same with Warrant‘s Robert Mason. Same with Great White‘s Terry Ilous. And then, there is Last In Line‘s Andrew Freeman. Wow! What a voice! What a performance from the entire band. Unlike Ilous who didn’t quite command the stage presence that I was hoping for from a “new singer” with more established band members (Mark Kendall in Great White‘s case), Freeman had excellent stage presence despite being accompanied by legendary bandmates consisting of guitarist Vivian Campbell (Dio, Whitesnake, Def Leppard), drummer Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio) and bassist Phil Soussan (Ozzy Osbourne). Arguably, Freeman had the toughest job in the world as he had to sing songs written (or co-written) and previously performed by the one and only Ronnie James Dio. No pressure there! Not only did Freeman do justice to the early Dio songs, he simply killed it! I was absolutely floored by how good Freeman sounded.
It was also great to see Campbell handling all the guitar duties and rocking out as he seems to almost unfairly play second fiddle to Phil Collen in Def Leppard. Campbell is a talented guitarist as his early Dio work clearly attests to and it was nice to see him get a chance to fully shine while handling guitar duties. It was also heartwarming to see the huge smile on Campbell‘s face as he was playing. He truly seemed to appreciate the moment. Obviously, out of all the performers at the M3 Rock Festival, Campbell would likely be the one most used to playing to crowd sizes as big as the one at M3 due to constantly touring with Def Leppard. Nevertheless, I really felt like Campbell was really enjoying himself on stage and appreciative with what was happening. The rhythm section of Appice and Soussan was rock solid as you would expect from two such heavy metal veterans.”
