DEF LEPPARD RADIO Coming To SiriusXM On May 27th Plus Concert Broadcast

Def Leppard 2022. Def Leppard 2022

Def Leppard will have a dedicated Def Leppard Radio channel on SiriusXM in May and June as well as a concert broadcast.

The Stadium Tour is scheduled to start on 16th June in Atlanta, GA.

The band's first tour since 2019.

Ahead of the tour and one day before the Diamond Star Halos album is released the band will play an intimate show in Los Angeles, CA for SiriusXM.

The show, which was announced yesterday, will take place on 26th May at the Whisky A Go Go venue for the SiriusXM Small Stage Series.

The event will celebrate the release of 'Diamond Star Halos' on 27th May.

And it has now been announced the concert will be broadcast on the channel starting Friday 27th May at 5pm ET on SiriusXM's Def Leppard Radio and Howard 101 channel.

A 'Def Leppard Radio' channel has also been announced and will start on 27th May and run to 25th June.

Similar dedicated channels already exist for many bands like Pearl Jam and U2.

Other acts like Foo Fighters and Coldplay have more recently had limited run channels tied in to the promotion of their new albums.

'Def Leppard Radio' will feature guest hosts and also "provide insight behind both their greatest hits and their new album.".

The band had a three day special in 2020 called 'Let's Get Rocked At Home Weekend' where they talked about many of their biggest songs in a series of specials on the Hair Nation channel.

The show will feature new songs played for the first time from 'Diamond Star Halos'.

Def Leppard Radio Channel

For the first time the band will have their own limited run Def Leppard Radio channel on SirisXM radio.

The band will talk about their biggest songs and the new album as well as airing the Small Stage Series concert.

Unfortunately this channel is only available in the USA (and my random ability to stream it no longer works - hence no more transcript's of Joe's show on Deep Tracks...).
