Def Leppard fans pumped in anticipation of their upcoming spring tour with Poison and Tesla can check out a new live video release of their 1981 hit ballad “Bringin' on the Heartbreak.” The track is from the multi-platinum seller's upcoming DVD release “And There Will Be a Next Time – Live from Detroit,” which will hit shelves in multiple formats on Feb. 10 via Eagle Rock.
The legendary British rockers posted the live video clip on Feb. 6 at their official YouTube channel. The performance is part of the two-disc live set, which was filmed on July 15, 2016 in Motor City at DTE Energy Music Theatre during The “Pour Some Sugar on Me” hitmaker's massive summer tour of North America.
The 4:29 minute video opens with DL guitarists Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell harmonizing on the instantly familiar intro riff as the crowd cheers in recognition. Frontman Joe Elliott saunters to the microphone in a tophat to open the first verse of the power ballad singing, “Gypsy, sittin' lookin' pretty/The broken rose with laughin' eyes.”
“Live From Detroit” is available here in DVD+2CD , Blu-ray+2CD and digital formats with exclusive bundles available. Fans can check out the “Bringin' on the Heartbreak” video clip above.
