Def Leppard Rocks Vegas…Til It Drops [VIDEO]

Def Leppard has joined a growing list of bands to take up temporary residency in Las Vegas. Seems getting on a tour bus and doing a string of 50-60 shows on a big tour is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Why not, when you can hole up in Sin City.

Def Leppard is currently doing eleven shows at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Def Leppard’s Joe Elliot rolled the bones with Noisecreep on how the Vegas dates came about:  I came out and sang some stuff when Cheap Trick did their Sgt. Pepper’s performances there in 2009. All of a sudden, we were in good company. “It was just a matter of time before the people who grew up listening to Kiss became rich enough and wanted to go and see a rock concert. Not just some old guy with a big blue tie. Sooner or later, Vegas was going to catch up with itself and become cool, which it did. I think we’re just riding our first wave here with this Vegas stuff. Who knows, in 5-10 years we might see Slipkot and the Foo Fighters doing one of these residencies.”

If you’re headed to Vegas, the shows continue through April 12.
