Planet Rock - News Quotes

The 'Hysteria' rockers are busy working on new material, which they hope will be ready in time for next spring and are planning to support the record's launch with a UK tour.

Taking to 'Planet Rock Stock' Main Stage, frontman Joe Elliot said: ''We've been working on and off on a new Leppard record. We're just extremely flattered that people care enough to want us to keep making new music so hopefully we'll have a new album out for next spring.

''Then, there will be a UK tour tagged onto that as well of course. But, as for right now, for this year, for Leppard, it's going to be recording the new record and just this one tour co-headlining the States with Kiss, which should be a pretty sexy tour.''

Wyatt - UK Tour In The Next 18 Months?

"Well yeah. My theory would be - you know the KISS thing will not come here. It just can't you know. The infrastructure in the UK is vastly different to America. To do 42 shows co-headlining with KISS - to do the six that we did with Motley Crue was an absolute nightmare to coordinate all their stage stuff and ours. And it's just it's impossible to do but with this new album coming out next year. I'm hoping and I'm saying this out loud, totally off the top of my head. I'm hoping that we can maybe do some proper shows in the UK some time like mid to late Spring next year. That would be my plan."
