Def Leppard have shared a video montage showing all “the stuff you didn’t see” in their 2019 video diaries.
The legendary rockers documented their on-the-road shenanigans last year, which captured them on what was a memorable year for the Sheffield outfit. Not only were they inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, but Leppard also headed out on a European tour complete with headline slot at the UK’s Download festival, hit the road on a summer tour of Canada, and topped it all off with a 12-date Las Vegas residency at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. You can check the new video montage out below.
While 2019 was a busy year for Def Leppard, this year is already shaping up to be another hectic year for the band. They’ll head out on a summer stadium tour across North America with Motley Crue, Poison and Joan Jett.
Of the upcoming jaunt, frontman Joe Elliott said: “The word on the street was that fans were overly excited about this stadium tour even before it was announced. Well it’s out there now and it keeps getting bigger and bigger. This is going to be a monster of a tour!”
Additionally, Def Leppard are expected to release The Early Years box set at some point.
The mooted collection will feature a “warts and all” show recorded in Oxford in 1980 when the band were out in support of their debut album On Through The Night, alongside other bonus material. They’ll also launch the 2020 Vision project which will see Def Leppard re-releasing “a lot” of their past video projects “in much better condition than it was originally released.
Joe Elliott told SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation: “In other words, no hissy VHS tapes any more, but cleaned-up, 5.1 Surround Sound remixes on the sound of some live stuff – and some live things that have never seen the light of day before.”
Further details of the project will be revealed in due course.
