Eclectiblogs - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

What can Def Leppard fans expect in 2013?

"Vegas, baby! We're playing the whole Hysteria album in sequence live in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel's 'The Joint' from March 22nd to April 13th. It's the first time we've ever done this or any residency of this sort so it's going to be phenomenal!"

"We're one of the best live performance bands out there. We really do our own vocals live, no samplers or sequencers. Plus we have this rather weird English thing-it's kind of like a working class loyalty-you just…stay."
