Def Leppard Plan to Record New Music During Vegas Residency

Def Leppard Plan to Record New Music During Vegas Residency -

Def Leppard are planning on writing new material during their upcoming Las Vegas residency, however fans shouldn't get too excited about the prospect of a new album just yet, according to Classic Rock.

Frontman Joe Elliot has revealed he is hoping to hire a separate hotel room in order to set up a recording studio in order for the band to write between shows.

However, for now they have to focus on perpetrations for their month-long residency performing tracks from 'Hysteria' in which the hard-rock veterans haven't played in decades.

Elliott tells Rolling Stone:

"It'll not be too hard; we're not changing arrangements like Bowie or Tom Waits might do. We're going to play the songs as they are on the record. We're going to revert back to the original versions."

With the Vegas shows during March and April based on a schedule of three days on, four days off, the band should find time to concentrate on writing material.

"I don't know if we'll do an album. Maybe the way to go is put one or two tracks out at a time and see how it goes - almost like a seven-inch single."

Def Leppard will be taking over the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas for an exclusive nine show residency entitled VIVA Hysteria!  The shows will run from 22 March through 10 April 2013 at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
