Guitarist Sean Kelly was recently interviewed about the tour and revealed that like Emm has was a childhood fan of Def Leppard. Also revealing a connection to Joe Elliott in working with the band Helix (who first recorded the song 'She's Too Tough' in 1987).

Another interview with Emm is available where she explains the band were initially asked to play more than three shows. The band are named after an old Ontario based Ice Hockey team called the North Bay Trappers.

The Music Express - Sean Kelly Interview Quotes

Trapper History

"We just connected together, she toured with David Bowie (sang back-up vocals and played keyboards), has her own solo career and tours with own roots group; Trent-Severn and I am working with major 80's Canadian talent like Helix, Honeymoon Suite and Lee Aaron so there is a great synergy there. "She reached out to me on Twitter; she wanted to know who this guy was who played guitar for both Nelly Furtado and Helix."

Touring With Def Leppard

"This is a dream gig for me, Def Leppard was my Led Zeppelin growing up, to me they are the ultimate rock band" concluded Kelly. "And to think, I get to go on stage with my heroes and perform, it feels like being 16 again."

"Still, performing on the same stage as the band "is a big dream for us because we're all huge fans of the band."

May 2 (Montreal), 4 (Ottawa) and 5 (London) were the only dates that Trapper could commit to. Def Leppard wanted them to do more of the Canadian tour dates, but both Gryner and Kelly have kids and other musical commitments, so they couldn't sign on for more than the three early May engagements."
