In February 2016, Def Leppard announced a tour in support of their 2015 self-titled album. The tour began on May 1, when the band performed at the Moonstone Festival in Orlando, FL. Other stops on the tour include Austin 360 Amphitheatre in Austin, TX, Nikon at Jones Beach in Wantagh, NY, and Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA. Def Leppard's tour won't wrap up until October 10, when the final performance takes place at U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids, IA.
On October 30, 2015, Def Leppard released their eleventh studio album, Def Leppard. Recorded at Joe's Garage in Dublin, Ireland, the album spawned the singles, "Let's Go," and "Dangerous." According to band member Joe Elliot, the album is "just called Def Leppard because that's what it sounds like." He went on to explain, "It doesn't sound like any one specific era of Def Leppard. It's got everything."
The album reached number one on multiple charts, including the US Top Rock Albums.
With sales of over 65 million albums, Def Leppard helped lead the renaissance of British heavy metal during the 80's. The band formed in 1977 in Sheffield, UK, and early members included Pete Willis, Rick Savage, and Joe Elliot. The lead singer, Joe had always dreamed of playing in a group called Deaf Leopard, so with a little creative spelling, the hard rock band found a name. Rehearsing in an abandoned spoon factory, they played gigs for small groups of friends and picked up Steve Clark and Rick Allen as new members. They released their debut LP, On Through the Night, in 1980, and soon everyone wanted Def Leppard tickets to so they could see the band in concert
Touring with artists like Judas Priest, Ted Nugent and AC/DC, Def Leppard was hitting their stride. After Mutt Lange produced their second album, High 'n' Dry, the band fired Pete Willis for drinking too much at work. Guitar player Phil Collen replaced Willis, and their next project, Pyromania, sold 10 million copies and led to the first Def Leppard World Tour. The Pyromania single "Photograph" reached the top of the Rock Tracks chart and is considered one of the best hard rock songs of all time. In 1987, the heavy metal band released Hysteria and fans loved "Pour Some Sugar on Me" and "Love Bites." The best selling album produced seven hit singles, including "Armageddon It."
In 1992, guitarist Steve Clark died from a mix of drugs and alcohol, so the guys recruited Vivian Campbell as his replacement. A prolific band, they released several albums over the next decade. Fans enjoyed classic Def Leppard lyrics from songs like "Let It Go" and "Too Late for Love." Recently, Def Leppard has toured with Journey, Foreigner, Styx, and other heavy metal stars.
