Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen was interviewed last month by Eddie Trunk and talked about touring into 2016.

Phil talked about the current 2015 tour, the good vibes in the band/enjoying being on stage together, Vivian's health, the new self titled DEF LEPPARD studio album, his hand injury from 2013, Steve Brown playing with the band, Joe's live vocals, his fitness, the 2016 Cruise (no side bands for Phil on the cruise), Delta Deep, 2016 touring with Def Leppard, Manraze and staying in touch with Mutt Lange.

Phil says once again that the band will tour well into 2016 as he has done in many other interviews including this one from earlier in August when he suggested the band would play in USA/Canada and South America.

This interview was conducted on 18th August before the Nashville show.

Listen to the full 45 minute interview below. It starts at around 13:13mins into the one hour podcast until 58mins.
