Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen has said the band intended to re-shuffle and mix up the 2012 tour setlists.

This follows up Joe's recent comments (15th March) that the band would be radically changing up the setlist on this tour and doing some "reworks" of songs. Phil was speaking to Ohio radio on 20th March in another round of phone interviews. He also gave an insight into how the setlists are written.

Who's in charge of setlists, Is that Joe? Is that Savage? Who's in charge of that?

"Sav usually writes it out but we have a basic one that we all kind of got together a while ago. Sav sits down and actually works out all the times. He'll go, if this is three minutes thirty-three seconds then we can fit this other one in - so he's the guy who does that. And he actually agonises over it as well."

"OK well we're re-shuffling the tour this time - the setlist and everything. We - actually in November we played Japan and we actually added ten songs, which we never do, you know we kind of dusted off a bunch of old stuff and threw it in there. So I think we're gonna be doing more of that this year."
