Rock ‘n’ roll will never die and Def Leppard is one of those bands that embodies that creed. They formed in 1976 as part of the NWBHM movement. The quintet forced a breakthrough in the 80s with ‘High ‘n’ Dry’ and the subsequent albums ‘Pyromania’ (1983), ‘Hysteria’ (1987) and ‘Adrenalize’ (1992) catapulted them into absolute stardom as one of the most successful hard rock bands ever. With a unique combination of classic metal and poppy melodies, catchy hooks and vocal harmonies – dubbed glam metal by some - they not only racked up 100 million in album sales but also inspired scores of other bands. Hits like ‘Animal’ and ‘Pour Some Sugar on Me’ are etched in our collective memories. In terms of new albums it’s been quality over quantity in the new millennium and they recently put out an excellent new record with ‘Diamond Star Halos’ (2022). Their co-headlining tour in the summer of 2022 with Mötley Crüe, ‘The Stadium Tour’, sold over 1 million tickets and in 2023 both bands are teaming up again for ‘The World Tour’. With their fantastic show at our 2019 edition still fresh in our minds we can’t wait to welcome their Rock of Ages one more time. Gunter glieben glauten globen! #GMM23
