Formed in Sheffield in 1977, Def Leppard have gone on to be one of the UK's greatest-ever rock bands. They have sold over 100 million albums worldwide in a career that spans three decades. Def Leppard’s influential career includes dozens of huge hit singles and ground-breaking multi-platinum albums – including two of the best-selling records of all time, “Pyromania” and “Hysteria”, both of which have been given the Diamond Award (over 10 million sales in the USA alone). These two albums alone contain 10 hit singles including the classic Leppard tracks "Rock of Ages,” “Animal," "Pour Some Sugar On Me” and “Foolin'.”
Def Leppard – Joe Elliott (vocals), Vivian Campbell (guitar), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick "Sav" Savage (bass) and Rick Allen (drums) – continue to be one of the most important forces in rock music. The group’s spectacular live shows, filled with powerful melodic rock anthems, continue to sell out venues worldwide. Def Leppard's epic live shows and arsenal of hits have become synonymous with their name, leading the Rock Legends to be heralded as an institution in both the music and touring industry.
Def Leppard are currently in the midst of a sold out Arena tour in the USA. They will tour the UK and Eire in December 2015 with Whitesnake and Black Star Riders.
