Def Leppard fans foaming at the mouth to catch the multi-platinum sellers on their recently launched spring tour of North America can catch a glimpse of what to expect when AXS TV premieres “And There Will Be a Next Time – Live from Detroit.” The legendary British rocker's recently released concert film will air on April 23 at 7:00 p.m. PT.
Blabbermouth reports on April 13 that the performance captures the “Pour Some Sugar on Me” hitmakers punching out greatest hits and classic album tracks along with material from their chart-topping 2015 self-titled studio album during a concert held back on July 15, 2016 at Detroit's DTE Energy Music Theatre. Frontman Joe Elliott and company deliver plenty of fans favs including: "Photograph,” “Hysteria" and "Rock Of Ages" along with recent hits like “Let's Go” and “Dangerous.”
“And There Will Be a Next Time” hit No. 1 in North America, following its multi-format release on Feb. 10 via Eagle Rock. Fans can check out a clip of the band punching out their 1983 classic hit "Rock of Ages" from the Motor City performance above. Check out AXS TV for more details.
“I had this idea that we should film one of the shows from the 2016 tour," explains Elliot about the concert film's origins in a media release posted at Kayos Productions. “Because apart from the Viva Hysteria shows, we hadn’t actually had a live performance filmed since 1988."
“With a new album out that was being so well received, it was just a case of where to do it,” the singer adds. “From the second the house lights went down, we could see the sun setting from the stage, and the energy from the crowd just seemed to intensify.”
Def Leppard launched their 2017 tour of North America on April 8 in Manchester, New Hampshire. The powerful triple bill, which also features special guests Poison and Tesla will continue on Apr. 14 in Baltimore at Royal Farms Arena and will wrap up June 25 in Indianapolis at Klipsch Music Center.
