DEF LEPPARD 2017 News Recap Part 1 (January)
Welcome to recap of all things Def Leppard in the year 2017 starting with the month of January.
Another year for the band is about to end and these updates will look back at the major events that took place over the last 12 months.
Featuring links to past news stories.
2017 was not quite as busy a touring year as 2016 but still very eventful and only the second time two albums were released in the same year (after two in 2006 with YEAH!/Hysteria Deluxe Edition). 2018 may prove to be more eventful with multiple album reissues and a world tour.
It all began in January with Joe appearing at three special David Bowie tribute concerts in London and Los Angeles.
These appearances could be repeated by Joe as the band involved have already announced atour from January to March 2018. Including shows in London, Dublin and at The Wiltern in Los Angeles. The message 'Plus additional special guests...' is included on the tour website.
The 2017 North American tour was confirmed later in the month featuring Poison and Tesla as the opening acts. Tesla supporting the band for a third straight year and now cementing their position as the band who have supported Def Leppard more than any other.

Joe Elliott's interview with his hero Ian Hunter from July 2016 was made available online. The first time he had interviewed another musician for a TV show. Sadly the video has now been made private and can no longer be viewed. Season one of the show can be purchased on Amazon so the episode may appear there in the future.
