Def Leppard To Work On New Album During Vegas Run

Def Leppard To Work On New Album During Vegas Run

(Undated) -- Def Leppard's upcoming Las Vegas residency will likely yield a new album as well. Frontman Joe Elliott tells that working on new music isn't as easy for the group as people might think, because they "don't all live on the same continent." He explains that it's difficult for them to "just do what people expect a band to do -- wander into a dusty old rehearsal room and go, 'What you got?,' and for Def Leppard "getting together to write an album is an event." Elliott says that their Vegas dates will also mark the first time in a decade that the full group is "actually in one room banging out songs from scratch." The new album will be Def Leppard's follow up to 2008's "Songs from the Sparkle Lounge."

Def Leppard will launch their nine-show "Viva Hysteria!" run at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on March 22nd. The concert series will feature songs from the band's multiplatinum 1987 album "Hysteria" and other material spanning the group's 35-year career.
