Def Leppard’s much anticipated gig at the 3Arena has resulted in a great deal of excitement amongst Irish fans following their announcement of their UK and Ireland headline tour this year. Def Leppard are scheduled to play the 3Arena on the 1st of December as well as the 2nd of December at the SSE Arena in Belfast. Tickets are still available, so if a ground-breaking gig featuring the legendary Cheap Trick tickles your fancy, get booking ASAP.
Def Leppard have secured their place in musical history with their hugely influential sound and have continued to be one of the most powerful forces in rock and roll music. Def Leppard entered the music scene in the 1970’s as part of the new wave of British heavy metal. The band currently consists of legendary artists Joe Elliott, Phil Collen, Rick ‘Sav’ Savage, Vivian Campbell and Rick Allen. The band are widely recognized for their stellar live acts and since their formation have performed at sold-out gigs around the world.
In January of this year, Def Leppard made music headlines following the release of their entire catalogue of hits on streaming platforms worldwide. Frontman Joe Elliot stated: “It was a mixture of relief and euphoria that we now see our entire catalogue finally getting a digital release. Having embraced every other format with open arms, especially and more recently the re-emergence of vinyl, we’re now going to be available to everyone elsewhere and honestly, it’s as exciting as the original releases were.”
Fans can expect to hear the band’s legendary album ‘Hysteria’ in full at upcoming gigs following it’s re-release in 2017, which features global hits including ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’, ‘Animal’ and ‘Love Bites’. According to Rick ‘Sav’ Savage: “After many requests from fans in the UK, I’m delighted that we can bring the whole ‘Hysteria’ album to arenas across Britain and Ireland this year. From ‘Women’ to ‘Love and Affection’ plus many other faves thrown in for good measure. Oh, and our old pals Cheap Trick will be there also to help with the celebrations! We can’t wait.”
