Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott has been interviewed by the New Zealand press to promote the upcoming Hysteria tour.

The tour was announced last week.

Joe spoke to Dani McDonald of the Stuff website based in New Zealand to promote the Auckland show.

Joe talked about PSSOM, playing live, the Scorpions, touring, still playing live shows at a high level, memories of a barbecue in New Zealand and still playing popular hits songs live.

The Auckland show will be the band's fourth in all and the first time ever for the Scorpions.

Stuff - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

Touring With The Scorpions

"If you like that kind of music, you turn up and the band that plays before us plays 70 minute of classic hard rock, or whatever you want to call it, and it really makes for an event. We always like to think that every gig we do is an event."

Playing Live

"We've always played every gig like it's the last one we are ever going to do. We don't ever get on stage in a blase situation, or with a frame of mind like, 'oh, it's just another gig'. It doesn't work like that for us, it never has,".

"Probably one of the reasons we're still around is that we don't ever want to let ourselves down, and we don't ever want to let our audience down, so we have to keep it at 110 per cent or we can't really do it."
