Joe Elliott Talks About Hysteria On The High Seas Cruise Setlist

Thursday, 14th January 2016

Def Leppard 2016.

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott was interviewed by Eddie Trunk on 11th January and talked about the Hysteria cruise.

The cruise is now just 7 days away - with a pre cruise party the night before featuring Last In Line.

Joe talked about David Bowie's influence on him and the band, meeting him, the new Def Leppard album, the making of the album, their influences, the YEAH! album, album running orders, the 2015 tour, the music industry/rock music, Hysteria cruise, the 2016 tour and the Guns N' Roses reunion.

Joe seems to confirm there will be two main performances by the band during the event - one electric and one acoustic.

The 1 hour 12 minute interview was posted on YouTube and can be heard in full below.

Eddie Trunk - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Hysteria Cruise Setlist

"Actually that's a very difficult question to answer right now because obviously with the cruise there's a full on electric performance. We're still kind of up in the air as to which set we're gonna play. We've just done some songs in the UK that we don't normally play in the US. We might actually just play them on the boat. Just for fun because we don't normally get to do them. But we also as you well know are gonna be doing like a pool party kind of acoustic question and answer type concert as well. And that's gonna be the fun part. And that's the bit right now that's so up in the air because we want that to be kind of semi spontaneous and with the passing of David Bowie today. I get the impression there's a small chance that there might be a Bowie song played."

"But I haven't even discussed this with the rest of my band mates yet. So that's between you and me and a million people that are listening. So we'll see. We'll see how that goes but we want it to be that spontaneous so we can just go you know what?. I just wanna do this because if it wasn't for him I wouldn't be here. So I'm gonna play this anyway. That might actually happen on the night but I'm just making this up as I go along."

"I've never done a cruise. It's a whole new thing for me. So I don't know whether to dress up as Johnny Depp or whether to do the honourable thing and be Michael Bolton and do the pastiche of the Pirates Of The Caribbean movies. Great video by the way."
