DEF LEPPARD 2019 News Recap Part 10 (October)

Def Leppard 2019. By dltourhistory

Welcome to recap of all things Def Leppard in the year 2019 continuing with the month of October.

Another year (and decade) for the band has just ended and these updates look back at the major events that took place over the last 12 months.

Featuring links to past news stories.

A month in which the band returned to the stage to play a large rock festival in Manchester, TN.

Joe appeared on BBC Radio 2 in the UK to talk about his early life in Sheffield and the Las Vegas residency.

Joe looked forward to the band's final show of 2019 in November by saying it would be a major event.

He also gave updates on new music and the now announced 2020 tour schedule. He suggested new music might be release in either 2020 or 2021.

Vivian had spinal surgery but recovered quickly to rejoin Last In Line on tour. They continued to play many shows around the USA ahead of a guest spot with Def Leppard.

Other major anniversaries also took place including the final show of the 'Hysteria' tour in 1988 and the release of the self-titled studio album in 2015.
