Def Leppard 2018 Tour

"Yeha 2018 busy year for Def Leppard. We started in May last year and did 60 shows in North America with Journey doing a co-headline tour and that was epic, it was really good. And then we went to Hawaii, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales."

Rock And Roll Hall of Fame Induction

"That's the week after next. No we haven't done it. But that was also a big thing for us last year. We found out about that just before Christmas. It was a nice way to end the year."

Are you gonna perform?

"We are gonna perform there. We'll do a few of the usual suspects."

Who else is gonna be there?

"Well there are five of us currently. Steve Clark posthumously. Pete Willis I believe and hope. Pete's been invited. I don't know if he's gonna show up or not. I hope he does. Be a bit of craic as they say."

You know who's inducting you?

"I do Brian May. The man with the curly hair and the curly guitar lead. He's a lovely chap."
