“As tough as the Sheffield steel that their home city produced when they originally forged their callow talents together in the vanguard of the NWOBHM, Def Leppard remains world beaters” – Express
Formed in 1977 in Sheffield, England, as part of the new wave of British Heavy Metal, Def Leppard’s style gradually evolved over time to become the era-defining sound we know today. This evolution, and their increase in popularity, started with their 1981 album “High ‘n’ Dry”, with their video for “Bringin’ On the Heartbreak” going on to become one of the first ever played on MTV in 1982. Their next album “Pyromania”, containing their first hit singles; “Photograph” and “Rock of Ages,” was certified Platinum an astonishing 10 times by the RIAA, marking the group already as one of the most popular of the decade.
However the band would go on to even greater heights with their fourth album, “Hysteria,” which contained no less than SEVEN hit singles; “Pour Some Sugar on Me”, “Animal”, “Love Bites”, “Hysteria”, “Armageddon It”, “Rocket”, and “Women”, hit number 1 in both the UK and US and charted in many other countries besides, and has to date surpassed “Pyromania,” in sales, earning Platinum certification over a dozen times and selling over 25 million copies around the world.
“Live, you realise just how complex the edifice is: the interlocking vocals, the switches between guitars, the fact that every song just gets bigger: this bit should be the chorus! No, this bit should! No, this is the chorus! It’s irresistible” – The Guardian
Today, the band’s discography has resulted in sales of over 100 million records, with both “Pyromania,” and “Hysteria,” certified Diamond by the RIAA – making them one of just five bands to have two original albums accomplish this feat. Currently comprised of band members Joe Elliott, Rick Savage, Rick Allen, Phil Collen, and Vivian Campbell, Def Leppard have shown themselves to be one of the greatest enduring live acts of their era, with Collen’s exceptional guitar playing as tight as it ever was, and most amazingly of all, vocalist Joe Elliott’s voice having nothing more than a slight rasp to it to indicate any signs of age. As of today, Def Leppard are one of the world’s best-selling bands ever, and 2019 marks the band’s hard-earned induction into the Hall Of Fame, an event that will surely be part of their live celebrations.
“The visuals are stunning, just the right mix of nostalgic and new, and at their best the songs actually sound better performed by a mature band, given new meaning by the passing of time and the relevance of a modern message” – Buzz
The band themselves are hugely looking forward to the upcoming stint at Las Vegas. “This is something that we’ve done before, so we know what we’re getting ourselves into — not this particular venue, but the idea of doing a residency,” singer Joe Elliott said in an interview, describing the band’s past experience of doing a residency show. “We did ‘Viva! Hysteria’ there in 2013, and you learn there’s a huge difference between playing 12 shows in 12 towns or 12 shows in one town. A, we get to sleep in the same bed for the best part of the month, which is one of the best bits about it. B, the fans come to visit us. And the fact that you are kind of in residence, when you do a couple of shows and you may have a day off, that day off, you don’t have to travel, you’re already there… And the energy that you get, just your body, the energy that it reserves and it gets through not having to travel, that helps with the show a hell of a lot. We learned that last time around.”
This time, the show promises to be even bigger and better than the last. Get ready to celebrate the hit songs of one of the biggest and most influential bands the world has ever seen LIVE – book your tickets to see Def Leppard NOW while they last!!
