Check out a new time-lapse video of Def Leppard’s warm-up rehearsal for their forth-coming US tour below:
Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen said this in a recent interview with New England Concert Reviews about the tour with Tesla and Poison: "Me personally, I actually see it as a celebration of the integrity of these three bands, and they all, for the most part, they are original members. It's, like, this is the same Def Leppard that put out 'Hysteria'. Well, obviously, Steve Clark passed away but it's the same band — it's not like a bunch of different guys in there. TESLA, it's the same band with one exception — Dave Rude's in the band now. And the four guys in POISON are the same four guys that started POISON. So it's, like I said, a celebration of integrity. A lot of other bands, they disappear and they actually maintain that. So this is as real as it gets. This is real integrity, it's a real band doing their stuff, it's not karaoke by any means, and it's also a tribute to being the last ones standing. A lot of bands have fallen off by the wayside, and whatever, but these three bands are here and I'm really appreciating that. Like I said, yes, a celebration of integrity."
