Def Leppard – New Album / Tour in 2011
According to Vivian Campbell and Phil Collen (Viv, when he was discussing future plans with Thin Lizzy and Phil in a recent interview with Music Radar), Def Leppard are planning to release a new ‘raw’ studio album in 2011 in time for a large tour the band is undertaking in the summer.
Vivian mentioned his foray into the Thin Lizzy world will have to take a rest when the Leppard return to the road for a massive tour next summer while Phil confirmed they’re hoping to have the record ready in time for the tour.
