Def Leppard Plan to Record New Music During Vegas
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
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.
"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
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
