We were holding out for more details but it seems everything there is to know about this has been made public by the band now. Its official, Def Leppard are aiming to release their first ever full live album in May this year which will be followed by a US / Canadian tour with Kansas and Heart. There has been no mention of dates outside of the US or Canada as of yet.

The Live record is being taken from the bands 2009 tour which included shows at Dublin’s O2 Arena and a headlining appearance at the Download Festival in the U.K (although there is still no confirmation what shows the live record will be comprised from). Lead singer Joe Elliott and bass player Rick Savage are currently in Dublin (no, haven’t seen them yet L) listening through various live recordings from the tour trying to gauge the best possible versions of the tracks to use. We’re presuming producer Ronan McHugh is also involved.

The record is also set to feature four new tracks from the band which are currently being recorded by the different members in different parts of the world. We’ll tell you more as we know it.
