Celebrity Page TV - Rick Allen Interview Quotes - (Transcribed by dltourhistory)

2019 Residency Opening Night

Phil - "We've really been putting a lot of time in for this reason. So that we could actually get this like that. And our crew and production and everything. A lot of the stuff was surprising to us. I mean the lasers and everything was shocking. It was amazing."

Bigger Production For Vegas

Rick - "That's what we figured. We figured it needed to be a real show and present the band in a completely different way that we've never done before. Some of the equipment that we use it doesn't always travel that well. So people are getting a real treat."

Phil - "Yeah I don't know how they'd get that in the truck on tour."

I hope this turns into a longer run

Phil - "It will. We're loving it so much. We like the vibe. We like being here and we dig it, it's great. So yes we'll be back."

Rick - "One of the most important things is my bed doesn't move."


Rick - "Yeah this is the under world. This is where all the sort of more technical end of things happens."

1983 Alladin Theater Show

Rick - "I think that was back in 1983. So it's pretty ironic that we're back here. You know obviously it has a different name. But it's the same building, same history."

Artwork Exhibit

Rick - "This is something really special for me. I think a lot of Def Leppard fans haven't really seen this side of me."

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

Rick - "It really hit me what a big deal this was and then standing up there on stage. It was like man this is really cool that we're finally getting some appreciation."
