Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott has been interviewed by Bangor Daily News ahead of the 24th June show in the city.

Joe talked about how the band have stayed together, their appeal to fans, his recent vocal issues, the band's sound, and wanting to entertain people.

Joe briefly commented on the upcoming tour and without mentioning it suggested more new songs will be played. Or in other words - 'Man Enough' will (probably) make its live debut in Mansfield, MA.

The interview was conducted to promote the 24th June show in Bangor, ME.

The first show in the city since August 2012.

Bangor Daily News - Joe Elliott Interview Quotes

2016 Def Leppard Live Show

"For those who have never been, they can expect a highly visual, highly aural show. We like to put on a show where people go, ‘Wow, that’s the best show I’ve seen all year.’ We play all the songs that everybody expects to hear, we play songs they won’t expect to hear, and with our new album out, we’ll play some new songs."

Entertaining People

"We just want to entertain and have fun with it. It’s just where we came from. Our upbringing led us in that direction, and there’s no shame in that. There’s no harm in having a band that entertains. That’s what people want to see."
