Def Leppard members Joe Elliott and Phil Collen have been interviewed about the new live album/video.

The And There Will Be A Next Time - Live From Detroit 2CD/DVD/Blu-ray set will be released on 10th February 2017.

In an interview with Billboard Joe and Phil talked about the concert film and said the 2017 tour (which had been mentioned by Phil/Vivian this summer) will start in April.

They will also mark the 30th anniversary of 'Hysteria' album in some form during these shows and plan to work on new music.

Interestingly the article states the tour will cover "much of the year".

This differs from Vivian's recent Last In Line interviews where he says the band will not be "too busy" in 2017, giving him more time to work on solo projects.

Billboard - Interview/Article Quotes

2017 Touring

"Def Leppard is gearing up for a busy 2017, with touring slated to start in April and cover much of the year. Next year also marks the 30th anniversary of the 12-times platinum Hysteria album, which Collen predicts will be commemorated in some fashion. "We do, like, seven songs off it anyway, but it'd be nice to throw the odd other one in, just another song, just give it a bit of celebration," he says. He also anticipates the group will be working on material for a new studio album to follow-up Def Leppard."
