Def Leppard have arrived in Auckland, New Zealand ahead of tomorrow night's show and they spoke to local news station 3 News.

Phil and Sav were interviewed at the Vector Arena in front of the stage and talked about their reputation as being a cursed band and their musical direction in the 80s. Footage of the band playing 'Undefeated' in the soundcheck was also shown. The stage setup has only five of the big vertical video screens, the secondary drum riser is being used with no horizontal video screens or ramps just two blocks of amps either side of Rick's drumkit. The thrust stage is also being used again.

The band kick off their Down Under tour tomorrow with special guests Heart and local band Shotgun Alley. They then play seven dates across Australia with Dux & Downtown and Choirboys opening.

3 News - Rick Savage Interview Quote

"It was a headline in a newspaper. People often put that image across - that we've been so unlucky - which was pretty ridiculous when you've been together 35 years."
