3 Years Ago DEF LEPPARD Inducted Into The ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME
Def Leppard were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in Brooklyn, NY on this day in 2019 with five songs also performed.
The show took place at the 17,000 capacity Barclays Center.
The band's first time in Brooklyn since 9th July 2005 on the Rock Of Ages tour.
The 34th annual induction ceremony where Brian May of Queen inducted the band into the hall 13 years after the were first eligible.
Fan voting ended on 9th December 2018 with Def Leppard winning by 119,803 votes ahead of Stevie Nicks. The official final total for fan votes was 547,647 votes.
The event started at 7 pm local time and lasted for five (very long!) hours until Def Leppard closed it with a short live set after their induction speeches.
They were also interviewed live in the red carpet before entering the venue (but the less said about that bit the better).
Brian May made a couple of little errors (or big depending on your point of view) during his ten minute speech but it did not detract from a great introduction for the band.
Joe was surprisingly the only Def Leppard member to talk but did so for ten minutes himself. He talked the crowd through a basic history of the band including a very emotional standing ovation for Rick and thanked many of the significant people who have helped them along the way. And the fans!.
