Elnuevodia - Phil Collen Interview Quotes (Translated)

Puerto Rican Fans

"I love Puerto Rican fans and come to perform at San Juan, as the energy here is spectacular. I can never forget that the last time we played here a fan was so excited he set fire to his own shirt, something too rare but everyone in the group when we saw we were surprised and said, 'I wow that's great'."

New Album

Collen also revealed that in October will be released the new album of Def Leppard, which said will be his best work of the past two decades.

"On Saturday we will not be playing anything from the new album and plans are to integrate topics to the repertoire after the album is on the market in October, so the first to hear these issues will probably be Japan as the tour will be over there by that time. This means that we will have to return soon to the island,
