One Album To Be Played At 2013 Las Vegas Residency

Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has said the band will likely play one album in full only during their proposed 2013 residency in Las Vegas.

Vivian recently stated the shows were 99% confirmed although he now refers to them as "alleged shows" and adds "if they happen".

"If" they do happen - the likely album he refers to is most probably 'Hysteria' but the 'Pyromania' album celebrates its 30th anniversary in early 2013.

Only one song from 'Pyromania' has not been played live ('Comin' Under Fire') and another only played once ('Action Not Words'). 'Die Hard The Hunter' has only been played once with Vivian in the band at his very first show.

Three 'Hysteria' songs have not been played live since the 1986/87/88 era and then only a handful of times (Run Riot/Don't Shoot Shotgun/Love And Affection). It's worth mentioning in a 2012 interview Joe did say he would like to play 'Comin' Under Fire' live at some point.

Slang album at the Las Vegas Residency?

"I'm not 'on the defense' as regards talking about music, there just isn't that much to report musically at the mo'. However, as for these alleged shows, if they happen, we'll be playing one album only. I'll let you guess which one that might be."
