Mark Mayfield - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

2015 World Tour/Album

"Leppard have just finished touring. We have an album to finish and we're going on a world wide tour next year that's gonna take us right up to 2016."

"Yes that's correct we gave Viv the rest of the year off. We've got everything we need from him recorded so it's all pretty much down to a few backing vocals, loads of lead vocals and mixing the record now. So that's great. That gives him the opportunity to be fit and healthy for the year long tour that we'll no doubt do to promote this new album next year. So that's pretty much essentially what we're doing for this year. We've got a couple of shows that we have to honour a commitment to towards the end of October/early November. And other than that we're just gonna finish the album."

NFL Performance

"Yeah before the Oakland Raiders versus Miami Dolphins one of three games they're doing this year in London. We were the pre game entertainment. So you know like they do Superbowl half time well they do it before the game kicks off on these things. But still there was 90,000 people in the place and countless millions watching on TV. It was a big moment for the band. It was a great experience. It's a very well oiled machine that whole thing."
