Def Leppard performed live on two U.S. TV shows on this day in 2019 to promote the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction.

The appearances took place earlier today at 8am New York time in ABC TV's New York Studios.

The first one saw them appear on 'Good Morning America' for the very first time.

The show was hosted by Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos and Michael Strahan.

They also performed a heavily edited version of 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' live at the studios in Times Square.

They talked to Lara Spencer about the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and the Hits Vegas Sin City Residency in a very short one minute interview.

Watch the interview below along with the full performance.

The band had previously been listed to appear on the show in 2016 but had to cancel due to Joe's vocal issues.

Other guests on this show were Gary Cole, Kevin Dunn and Sam Richardson.

Later on they performed live on the Strahan And Sara show.

This appearance took place in the afternoon at ABC TV's Times Square Studios in New York.

The show was hosted by Michael Strahan and Sara Haines.

Joe was briefly interviewed and the band performed another heavily edited song - this time 'Hysteria'.

This show was filmed at the same studios as Good Morning America.

Author Harlan Coben was also a guest on the one hour show.
