According to Vivian the band will play the US warm-up shows in June/July and possibly start their European festival run in Bulgaria.

The now 11 show run is 41 days away and kicks off on 22nd March at The Joint.

BackstageAxxess - Vivian Campbell Interview Quotes

"We certainly are yeah, March and April. We've never done anything like that before. We're particularly excited about it because it gives us a chance to actually work on new recordings because we're all gonna be in one place together for a certain amount of time.

"We live all over the world so we usually only see each other when we're touring and then when you're touring and getting on a bus night it's not very conducive to demoing songs. Certainly not the way Leppard works. So we're only doing three shows a week in Vegas so in the days off we've got a little Pro Tools rig and and we're gonna kick around some ideas for recording so that I'm looking forward to."

New music in 2014 maybe?

"We're notoriously slow, how's about 2018? Who knows?."

"We only have this Vegas run this summer. That's it as far as live work for at least a year."
