Jonesy's jukebox - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Def Leppard Album/Tour

"We're actually on tour right now. We're actually taking a little break from Christmas and stuff and we do a - we go on a cruise next week. One of them rock and roll cruises round the Caribbean. Four days and then we do South Texas, New York. New York in February which is gonna be freezing. Barclay's Center and then we've got like San Antonio, Louisana about three weeks of touring."

You still play big places? Sheds?

"Yeah we just done England and it was a sell out tour. Like Wembley, Sheffield. Yeah it's been really bonkers. And it's actually, for whatever reason, this summer we just released a new album called Def Leppard. First in like 7 years. And it's doing great. It went in at Number Five over here and it's been worldwide. Shocking to us actually how well it's doing. So and the gigs have been great as well."
