Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen played the first full live show with his side band Delta Deep last night in Los Angeles, CA.

The show took place at The Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles, CA which has a capacity of just 165.

One of the most intimate shows Phil has played since the first Manraze gig in London almost 10 years ago.

The show started at 8pm and featured 10 songs. 9 of these feature on the band's debut self-titled album due out on 23rd June. The first time the full four piece band had played live together in public.

The band consisting of Phil on lead vocals/guitars, Debbi Blackwell-Cook on vocals, Forrest Robinson on drums and Robert Deleo from Stone Temple Pilots on bass played 9 songs from the album in public for the first time, at least electrically.

'Treat Her Like Candy' and 'Black Coffee' had been played for the first time in public at the KLOS Radio session the day before the show.

'Burnt Sally' also made it's live debut in 2013 live on the radio but with only three band members.

The set kicked off with a cover of the Led Zeppelin classic 'Black Dog'. An obvious reference to the band describing themselves as 'Led Zeppelin as fronted by Tina Turner'.

The rest of the set stuck mainly to the band's own original songs including the very rocking song 'Down In The Delta'. Cover song 'Black Coffee' was also included which is performed in the style of the Humble Pie version from the 70s. The song having originally been recorded by Ike and Tina Turner.

The next show for Phil takes place on 20th June in San Juan, Puerto Rico with his "other" band...Def Leppard.
