About Def Leppard
Hailed as the UK’s greatest rock band, Def Leppard formed in Sheffield in 1977. The group were part of Britain’s new wave of heavy metal.
Def Leppard – whose current line-up consists of Joe Elliot (vocals), Phil Collen (guitar), Vivian Campbell (guitar), Rick Savage (bass) and Rick Allen (drums) – enjoyed their biggest successes during the ‘80s.
It was during this time the band released Pyromania (1988) and Hysteria (1987), which became two of the biggest-selling albums of all time. Pyromania and Hysteria spawned countless hits including Rock of Ages, Foolin’ and Animal. Both albums went on to receive the Diamond Award.
Throughout the years, Def Leppard have wowed audiences time-and-time-again with their outstanding live performances. The group can be counted on for a spectacular show which includes all of their biggest hits. Def Leppard’s tours have seen tickets sell-out at venues across the world.
Def Leppard have released ten studios albums: On Through The Night (1980), High ‘n’ Dry (1981), Pyromania (1983), Hysteria (1987), Adrenalize (1992), Slang (1996), Euphoria (1999), X (2002), Yeah! (2006) and Songs From The Sparks Lounge (2008).
