The Latest Def Leppard News


Def Leppard returns to Las Vegas at MGM Grand

The last time Def Leppard was in Las Vegas was four years ago, when the English rockers who have been doing it for 40 years now were playing their Viva Hysteria residency at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel.

“It was great. We got to live in Vegas for a month,” says guitarist Phil Collen. “Honestly I thought we’d get more time to do the stuff people come to Vegas for, see shows and all that stuff. But we were so busy. Because we were playing [hit album] Hysteria straight through for one set, we had 30 songs we had to get down and it was a very different experience. Doing the album was a bit more theatrical than the tour experience. But it’s quite lovely at this point in your career to be able to do different things.”

Def Leppard is back in Vegas this weekend for a big tour stop at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on June 17 (find ticket info here).
