Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen was recently interviewed and mentioned plans to expand the Hysteria tour.

Phil was speaking to Chimera Magazine to promote the G3 tour and new Delta Deep live album 'East Coast Live'.

He talked about touring with G3, the next Tesla album, Delta Deep, playing guitar/early years, recording with Girl, Def Leppard's success, expanding the UK Hysteria tour elsewhere, new Manraze song/Best Of album, records he would take to the grave and what is next for him including new Def Leppard music.

Phil says the 'Hysteria' album tour of the UK may well be played in Japan following requests and also in the USA. USA dates would likely be played in 2019.

He also repeated past news of a new Manraze song which might be included on a 'Best Of' album. This has been mentioned for well over a year.

Chimera Magazine - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Hysteria Album Tour In Japan/USA

"I think that Japan was requesting it as well, so we will do that there as well. I’m not sure when those dates are because May through October we’ve got the US tour with Journey. I’ve got a feeling we will do that in the States at some point as well."

New Def Leppard Music

"And then Def Leppard started writing for the new album which is sounding great."

New Manraze Song/Best Of Album

"I think we are going to release a best-of album. We were just talking about a new song we were writing. We haven’t finished it, but we may feature that on the record as well."
