Def Leppard Tickets for the 2016 Def Leppard Tour are selling out fast!
The legends of English hard rock, Def Leppard hit the road again in December/January with the mighty Whitesnake. Formed in Sheffield in 1977, the band were at the forefront of the British Heavy scene. Although there has been a few changes to their line-up throughout their career that spans almost 40 years, it is their most memorable line-up of Joe Elliot, Phil Collen, Vivian Campbell, Rick Savage and Rick Allen who take to the stage up and down the country.y. Since their formation, they have had a total of 11 studio albums, with Adrenalize, Hysteria and Pyromania being stand-out favourites amongst fans. They have been known for rousing stadium fillers such as Let's Get Rocked, Pour Some Sugar On Me and ballads such as Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad. Through The Night, Leppard's début release, was where it all began though, in 1980. The album was a considerable success and was followed swiftly by High and Dry in 1981. Thanks largely to the repeated appearance of the lead single from that album, Bringing On The Heartbreak and an extensive tour of the UK and US, the album was an out and out success. Although they were more associated with the hair and glam metal movements initially, over the years they have developed and evolved into a more AOR-influenced sound. The fact that they are still going, is worthy of praise itself and having just released album number 11 at the end of October they show no signs of slowing down just yet.
The new album is simply called Def Leppard and with good reason as frontman, Joe Elliot has suggested it is a fitting representation of the different sides to the band. There are fast songs, slow songs, heavy songs and acoustic songs. Expect many of the new songs to fit nicely into the mix with their back catalogue of classics as they do what they have always done best and rock large venues up and down the country. The Def Leppard Tour is definitely not one to miss, so make sure you get your Def Leppard tickets before it's too late!
