In 1977, Def Leppard were the wonder teens from Sheffield who spiked their hard rock with glam and glitter. Their album debut in 1980 ignited one of the greatest success stories that hard rock has ever seen. Commercially they peaked with Pyromania (1983) and Hysteria (1987), two of the best selling records of all time. However, their latest album Def Leppard (2015) was a feat of strength which made it clear that the band’s creative spark still burns strong. Since 1992 Def Leppard consists of singer Joe Elliott, guitarists Phil Collen and Viv Campbell, bassist Rick Savage and drummer Rick Allen. The band has a large and devoted Swedish fanbase, and anyone who has yet to experience them live at SRF is in for a grand epiphany.
