Def Leppard may not be generating the same amount of fanfare for its latest album release, but anyone who has lived through the 80s and 90s could not have escaped the all-consuming hysteria surrounding its tracks. Leading the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, Def Leppard worked its way through crazed guitar riffs and multi-layered vocals during their heyday, later shifting to basic rock and then pop. 65 million career album sales stand testament to the band’s unbelievable consistency. Even the band members’ dramatic anecdotes, like the tragedy of guitarist Steve Clark and the audacious fight-back ability of drummer Rick Allen through adversity, make Def Leppard’s story even more captivating. The current lineup of Joe Elliot (vocals), Phil Collen (guitar), Vivian Campbell (guitar), Rick Savage (bass) and Rick Allen (drums) is easily the band’s longest serving, having played as a unit since 1992. Def Leppard Tickets continue to be a force on the market as they rock through the country, leaving a trail of dazed metal scrap in their wake.
Three students at Sheffield’s Tapton School in South Yorkshire County first formed the nucleus of what would later become Def Leppard. Rick Savage gave up playing guitar to take up bass, while Pete Willis took over guitar duties and augmented Tony Kenning in a band that was called ‘Atomic Mass’ in 1977. They were soon joined by Matt the Hopple and T. Rex fanatic Joe Elliot, who suggested the name from his musical daydreams in classroom. The supremely talented Steve Clark joined before the year’s end.
Def Leppard suffered the departure of Kenning and his replacement Frank Noon before 15-year-old Rick Allen took up the drumming job. Their maiden three-song EP Def Leppard EP did surprisingly well and audiences warmed to the new wave metal. Selling out arenas by the turn of the decade, they struck a deal with Phonogram/Vertigo but incurred English fans’ displeasure at their apparent wooing of American audiences. Stung, Def Leppard responded with the meticulously arranged High n’ Dry (thanks largely to AC/DC producer Robert “Mutt” Lange). It was a major musical shift and when Willis was fired for overdrinking-related incompetency and replaced by Phil Collen, Def Leppard were ready to break through the roof. What followed was six years of pure Def Leppard mania as records were smashed by the band’s next two albums. Allen tragically lost an arm to a car crash, but such was the optimism that he carried on playing drums by deputizing his legs to share some of the single-arm workload and also got a custom electronic drum-kit designed.
While attempting to write new material, Def Leppard’s flow suffered from the increasingly inebriated Clark, who was granted leave. He tragically died in 1990 from an accidental prescription mix up. By the mid-90s, the frenzied excitement had settled and compositions now carried a dark alternative edginess with semi-acoustic drums. 2002’s X was another attempt to redefine their legacy with a pop-oriented album, but Def Leppard then stuck to “Best of” compilations and cover albums. The live album Mirrorball hit stores in June 2011.
“Getcha Rocks Off” became Def Leppard’s first hit off their debut EP, helped by generous radio play. 1983’s Pyromania, powered by the irrepressible tracks “Photograph” (#1) and “Rock of Ages” (#16), sold 6 million copies and stood #384 in the all-time albums list. This was followed by 1987’s unrelenting Hysteria selling 20 million copies (12xPlatinum in USA) and spawning six mega hit singles: “Animal” (#19), “Hysteria” (#10), the band’s signature song “Pour Some Sugar on Me” (#2), “Love Bites” (Def Leppard’s first and only #1), “Armageddon It” (#3), and “Rocket” (#12). 1991’s Adrenalize became a colossal #1 UK and US hit album with the success of “Let’s Get Rocked” (#15). Vault, a greatest hits album, scooped up 11 million worldwide sales, keeping it tall among later albums like Euphoria (#11) and X (#11).
Def Leppard Tickets have been regularly snapped up by eager fans as the band popularized arena rock and the art of selling out huge arenas effortlessly. They have headlined countless tours the world over and also entered the record books for performing concerts in three different continents in one day (London, Tangiers, and Vancouver)! The coming days see them at Cincinnati and Woodlands.
Def Leppard’s legacy will live on, from the lung-busting vocals and the shredding guitar rhythms to the ushering in of a new era of heavy metal. Fans with Def Leppard Tickets will be milling around venues looking to be transported to true metal utopia.
