DEF LEPPARD's JOE ELLIOTT Sings SUICIDE CITY w/ Doctors Of Madness (Video)

Def Leppard 2014. Joe Elliott/Kid Strange

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott performed with the Doctors Of Madness in London in 2014 and pro shot footage is now available.

Joe appeared with the band during a reunion performance on 11th October 2014.

The show was an event billed as 'Language Is A Virus From Outer Space - An evening inspired by the Life and Work of William S. Burroughs 1914-1997' organised by DOM front man Richard 'Kid' Strange.

The event took place at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall at the South Bank Centre.

Joe sang guest vocals during their final song 'Suicide City'.

Joe also attended what was to be the band's final ever London show at the 100 Club in March 2018 just before DL's own show at the Royal Albert Hall.

The band reformed again for more live shows before new music was worked on. Joe ended up contributing backing vocals to six songs on their first album in 41 years. 'Dark Times' was eventually released in September 2019.

Watch the performance footage via the YT playlist linked below. It was recently posted to YouTube by the band in late 2019 just over five years since the show took place.

The Joe Elliott Show - 19th October 2014 Quote

Doctors Of Madness

"And before that from an album called Figments Of Emancipation a band that had been split since '78 but got back together last week for a one off performance. They're part avant garde. They're part proto punk. One foot in prog and one foot firmly in out there. They are the Doctors Of Madness. A fantastic song that I had the pleasure of singing with them last week. The track called Suicide City."

Doctors Of Madness

"From an album called Late Night Movies All Night Brainstorms that is the Doctors Of Madness from 1976 with a song called Waiting. And waiting is something that I've done for 36 years to find out the amazing news that the Doctors Of Madness for a one off show have reformed and they are playing tonight in London. Hmm what a coincidence think I might go down. It's all part of a William Burroughs centenary festival of art. It's called Language Is A Virus Form Outer Space which is a William Burroughs quote. The Doctors Of Madness are playing a short set. I'm gonna be there. It's gonna be a very arty set so I'm gonna keep the set for this show very arty. Here's some 10CC for you."
