Def Leppard 2022. Def Leppard 2022

Def Leppard's guest appearance in The Bank Of Dave will now be seen in January 2023 when the film hits Netflix.

As mentioned in March 2022 the band filmed scenes for the UK based movie.

The film titled 'The Bank Of Dave' is based on the life of businessman David Fishwick from Burnley and the opening of his bank Burnley Savings & Loans Ltd.

It features features Rory Kinnear playing the role of David along with Phoebe Dynevor and Joel Fry.

The film has now been given an official release date on Netflix of Monday 16th January 2023.

It had been previously due at the end of this year.

Joe had confirmed in March the band performed 3 songs for their scene which was a charity concert organised by the main character who is also a Lep fan in real life.

More photos have been published by Tempo Productions showing the temporary stage set up at a film studio near Leeds which was made to look like Burnley F.C.'s football ground.

The film wrapped up its filming in April and a cast photo on the stage with all the band members was quietly posted to their blog and can be seen below and via the link.

Read Joe's quotes from March below again along with the film descriptions.

Three Songs Performed

Joe revealed in March that the band performed 3 songs on Saturday 5th March during the shoot.

'Pour Some Sugar On Me' very likely to be one of those.

Def Leppard Role

Joe said the band appear in a sequence meant to look like they are playing at Burnley F.C.'s 21,000 capacity Turf Moor football ground.

And they are included in scenes related to a charity concert organised by the character David Fishwick (who is a Leppard fan in real life).

As revealed by looking closely at the Tempo Production photos the band were not actually in the stadium but in a film studio on a stage made to resemble on outdoor festival setup.

The company is actually based just north of Leeds where they have a studio so it could be the scenes were actually filmed there rather than in Burnley itself. The film description mentions filming in Leeds.
