Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell has been interviewed by Las Vegas radio and mentioned the possible second residency.

Vivian talked about Jimmy Bain, the Last In Line Heavy Crown album, album launch in Las Vegas, other live shows, the band's future, his health/current treatment, Def Leppard returning to Vegas/2016 summer tour ans VIVA! Pyromania/Ded Flatbird.

Vivian hinted at a return to Las Vegas for the Pyromania residency and the lack of a Las Vegas show in 2016 suggests it might be soon. With the tour (currently) ending in the USA in October the most likely next opportunity would be early 2017.

Vivian has already suggested the band would probably not tour extensively in 2017 and prepare for another album to be released in 2018/2019.

Coming Back To Las Vegas

"Well you know why that is. That's because we still wanna come back and do another residency. Well we definitely - we have an open invitation to come back when it suits us. It's just that you know the regular touring schedule - Leppard, we put out a new studio album towards the end of last year and it was a long, long time overdue. I mean 2008 was the last time we put a record out of new material."

"So in light of that we actually went on a world tour. We were in Australia and Japan last year and Singapore and all over Europe, Scandinavia and all over Canada as well as the United States and Mexico. So we've had a really busy touring schedule this last couple of years."

"And the Vegas offer is open to us whenever it suits us but we will definitely be doing it."

VIVA! Pyromania?

"Well yeah I mean that would be the obvious next one to do you know. We did Hysteria. Pyromania would be the next one in line I would think. You know but we'd obviously have to fill out that show with something other than the Pyromania record because I think Pyromania comes in at 39 mins or so. It's not a very long record."

"So it wouldn't be enough to sustain an entire show. But then again when we did the VIVA! Hysteria thing. The most fun part of that show for me personally was that we were our own opening act as Ded Flatbird. You know because Ded Flatbird played a bunch of really obscure album cuts. And a different setlist. So it was a real challenge but it was great fun. So obviously we would have to consider doing something like that. Especially in light of the fact that Pyromania doesn't run particularly long."
