Def Leppard members Joe Elliott and Rick Savage were interviewed in London last week by Metal Talk and the video is available.

Joe and Sav were both in England last week to promote the film and it's CD/DVD/Blu-ray release.

They talk about playing the full Hysteria album, how the residency idea came up, staying in Las Vegas/playing one venue, Hysteria album memories (they still can't recall playing Excitable live in 2007...), UK success, singles, Steve Clark, the possibility of playing the album in full again, writing new songs, touring and Vivian's health.

Show Film First - Joe Elliott Interview Quote

New Music/Touring

"We can do anything we like so whenever we do tour again. And it's gonna be a while - or it's gonna be at least next summer I would imagine. Or whenever because we've got a guitarist with his hand in a cast and we've got another one recovering from cancer. So at this moment in time it's a great opportunity for us to enjoy a bit of domesticity for once. Sleep in the same bed for more than 23 days which we did in Vegas and write and record. I mean I've got the Down 'N' Outz thing that I'm messing with but but we're gonna write - you know utilise my studio as best we can and get some new stuff written because you know it's about time really."
