Titans of the 80's British Heavy-Metal revival and progenitors of contemporary Pop Metal Def Leppard have never let anything stand in their way, even their drummer Rick Allen losing an arm to a car accident. Overcoming this with a custom kit and a new style of drumming, the band surged on to create the album 'Hysteria', which hit 12 times platinum in US sales and sold over 20 million copies worldwide. Catch them live in 2020 on the 20/20 vision tour, where they'll be accompanied across the country by iconic beardy rockers ZZ Top!
The Sheffield natives are in no danger of slowing down and continue to tour relentlessly, filling stadiums to capacity and rocking as hard as ever. Lead singer Joe Elliot has lost none of his range and his gravel-toned vocals cut through the swathes of guitar riffs and solos that bolster each smash hit of a song. Expect fist-pumping anthems, swagger and an unforgettable night!
Influenced by the likes of Johnny Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters, the Rock & Roll Hall of Famers infuse their classic blues riffs with the spirited, often humorous pursuit of worldly pleasures; look no further for catchy tunes about fast cars, sharp clothes and good times.
Performance date: 25 September 2020
