Def Leppard Announce Residency at The Joint -
Def Leppard will become the latest band to take up a
residency at the Hard Rock
Hotel and Casino Las Vegas next year.
The three-week run at one of Las Vegas' most famous Casinos will
feature nine shows by the hard-rock outfit that will include some
their greatest hits, as well as their 1987 live album
'Hysteria' in its entirety.
Kicking off on March 22nd the band will perform on Friday,
Wednesday and Saturday nights through until April 10th at the Joint
inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
"We've never done anything like this before in our entire
career so the opportunity to do something completely different like
this, in such an iconic setting, is very exciting and something we
just couldn't say no to," singer Joe Elliott
said in a band statement.
Tickets go on sale Nov. 16 through Ticketmaster or the Joint's
official website. There
are a number of VIP packages available through the band's website,
but the cost of single tickets begins at $49.50.
Def Leppard will join a growing list of acts that
have taken up residency at the renowned venue. On Halloween
Guns N' Roses began a 12-show residency at The
Joint and earlier this year Motley Crue completed
a 12 night stint at the same venue.
