Def Leppard recently confirmed the release date for their new concert film, London To Vegas was going to be pushed back until May 29. Now the band have released an extended trailer for the package, featuring a selection of classic tracks along with a snippet of the acoustic section from the Vegas residency. You can check it out below.
London To Vegas was originally scheduled to be out later this month, with the band softening the blow by sharing a video for ‘Run Riot’ which was taken from the ‘Hysteria At The O2’ section of the live package.
The second part of London To Vegas – ‘Hits Vegas, Live At Planet Hollywood’ – was captured during Def Leppard’s successful 2019 Sin City residency.
London To Vegas will be released in a variety of formats, including a deluxe box set which will include a 40-page hardback book. There are also a number of bundle options available direct from Universal, including autographed sets.
The ‘Hysteria At The O2’ concert was the first time Def Leppard played their smash hit album in its entirety in London, and the band also dusted off more of their catalogue on the night, performing tracks including ‘Let’s Get Rocked’, ‘Photograph’, and ‘Rock Of Ages.’ The package will also feature the mini-documentary ‘Hysteria: Then And Now.’
‘Hits Vegas, Live At Planet Hollywood’, meanwhile, features a total of 28 songs, including acoustic versions of ‘Let Me Be The One’, ‘We Belong’, ‘Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad’ and ‘Two Steps Behind.’
Last month, Def Leppard released The Early Years 78-81 box set to coincide with the 40th anniversary of their debut album On Through The Night. The packaged included remastered editions of On Through The Night and the band’s second album, High N’ Dry, alongside a host of radio sessions, rare tracks and a previously unreleased live show recorded in Oxford on the ‘On Through The Night’ tour of 1980.
London To Vegas is out on 29 May and can be pre-ordered here.
