Def Leppard 2018. By dltourhistory

A round up of Def Leppard News with links to stories and updates from this week in the band's history.

A week where another new release for 2020 was announced.

London To Vegas Announcement

The London 2018 and 2019 Las Vegas residency shows were announced and confirmed for release on 24th April.

The 2018 Hysteria tour show featuring 17 songs including the full Hysteria album will be released as the 'Hysteria At The O2' concert film on DVD and Blu-ray and audio on 2 CD's plus a separate 'Hysteria Live' 2LP clear vinyl release.

The September 2019 shows in Las Vegas, NV which ended the 'Sin City Residency' will be released as 'Hits Vegas Live At Planet Hollywood' and released as part of the double 'London To Vegas' box set that also features the London show.

A 10" Picture Disc with four acoustic songs from the Vegas shows is also released under the title of 'Acoustic In Vegas'.

20/20 Vision Video Releases?

Despite being mentioned a few times by Joe alongside the '20/20 Vision' video release there was no mention of this in the 'London To Vegas' announcement.

This seems to confirm that only old (and/or unreleased) archive video releases will be part of this series. And that they will be released closer to the tour with ZZ Top.

Rocket Live London 2018 Single/Video

On the same day as the concert films were announced the audio of 'Rocket' from the London show was released as a single.

A day later the video version was uploaded to YouTube.

Rick Allen Guests With Tesla

Rick returned for a third time to the Monsters Of Rock cruise with Tesla in Florida.

Once again he played along on an acoustic kit to a couple of songs.

Last In Line Tour

Vivian Campbell's side band Last In Line began their 2020 touring with three shows played.

The first show took place in Nashville, TN.

It was followed up by two shows in Florida with first time visits to Destin and St. Petersburg.
