Def Leppard Invited To Take Part In Street Music Day In Vilnius

Wednesday, 13th May 2015

Def Leppard 2015.
World Tour 2015

Def Leppard play a show in Vilnius, Lithuania on 17th May 2015 and have been invited to take part in an event the day before.

Local musician Andrius Mamontovas has invited the band to take part in Street Music Day on 16th May. An event that takes place on the third Saturday of May with people taking to the streets to play and perform together.

The promoters of the show Seven Live have said the band were happy to be invited but have yet to officially respond. Steven Tyler and Peter Gabriel have previously taken part.

Read the invite below. The event is now in its ninth year.

This will be the third time the band have played in the city after visits in 2003 and 2008. The November 2003 show at the Sporthalle was their first ever show in Lithuania. The Siemens Arena was first played on the 2008 tour.

In recent years Vivian Campbell stated that the 2008 Vilnius crowd was the loudest and most enthusiastic audience the band had ever played for.

Street Music Day 2015 - Inivitation

Hey, Def Leppard

My name is Andrius Mamontovas.

I am a musician and songwriter all my life.

Every year, Me and my team, organize Street Music Day.

It goes on in more than 50 towns of Lithuania, and also in Georgia, Ukraine, Latvia, Belarus and more.

Every third Saturday of May, thousands of people go out on the streets of their cities and play whatever they want to. There's no selection or particular style of music. Everyone is invited.

It will be such a great honour, if you guys, will take a walk down the the streets of Vilnius (or maybe even perform something if you will feel the vibe for it).

With respect,
Andrius Mamontovas.
