JOE ELLIOTT Says DEF LEPPARD Will Play The UK On 2018 World Tour

Def Leppard 2017. By Sally J

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott appeared on Planet Rock on New Year's Eve and mentioned some 2018 tour news.

He appeared briefly on the five hour 'Planet Rock New Years Party 2017' show on 31st December.

His brief and unannounced appearance came at 9:45pm during the show which ran from 7pm to 12am.

Various DJs took on different slots including the first two hours presented by Justin Hawkins from The Darkness and Alice Cooper. After this various DJs took over and played a handful of songs each.

Before playing David Bowie's 'Heroes' Joe mentioned upcoming plans for 2018 including a UK tour and new music from the Down 'n' Outz.

He seemed to confirm UK shows rather than trying to stress they might not happen as he had done in a recent Classic Rock magazine interview.

Listen to the show at which is available for one more day.

Planet Rock New Years Party 2017 - Joe Elliott Quotes

"This is Joe Elliott at the Planet Rock New Year's Eve Party and what a party it is folks. We have been here all night long reminiscing about the wonderful things that have happened in the year 2017."

"But now, now it is time to turn and face the light. Now it is time to look forward to our hopes and dreams for the year 2018."

"For me personally it's all about Def Leppard. We have a massive year in front of us, and that will include the UK. It's about my other band the Down 'n' Outz. New music on its way."

"It's about seeing new bands in clubs, working their way into theatres and hopefully into arenas and into stadiums. It's about more brilliant recorded music from the likes of The Struts and Greta Van Fleet."

"And one last thing. Let's hope that 2018 is more like the year 2017 when it comes to rock star deaths. In other words NOTHING like 2016. If you have heroes embrace them, embrace their work. They will not be around forever. On that note let's play this. David Bowie and Heroes."
