News - Def Leppard To Play More Hysteria Album Tracks In 2012

Friday, 11th May 2012

Phil Collen Sheffield 2008.

Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen was recently interviewed by PYX 106 radio in Albany, NY and talked about playing more Hysteria album tracks live.

Phil was promoting the 20th August show in Saratoga Springs, NY. His comments follow on from a (translated) quote by Joe Elliott in South America about a putting together a concert to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Hysteria album. Reading Phil's comments it would seem likely Joe may have been referring to the tour setlist itself rather than a specific one-off concert (or perhaps not...write in if you speak Spanish!).

In a 10 minute interview Phil talked about the Physical Mechanix DVD, the Saratoga Springs show, changing up the stage for 2012 and the setlist, playing some 'other' songs from the Hysteria album live, the Rock Of Ages movie premiere performance, attending a private screening of the film, the lack of interest in the band during the 90s, opinions on various bands - Foo Fighters/Van Halen/Guns N' Roses, the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and the Manraze album/single.

Quinn & Cantara - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

"This stage is different to the one we took out last year and the year before. They keep updating it and upgrading it."

"And we're gonna be changing some of the songs around. We've pretty much stuck to the same pool of songs. We are - you know it is Hysteria's 25th anniversary this year so we're actually gonna dig a few of those songs out off of that album. And we've got the new single It's All About Believin'. We're actually gonna be kicking off rehearsing probably in about two weeks."

"And then we're doing a premiere performance for the red carpet for the Rock Of Ages movie (8th June)."
