Kerrang! magazine conducted an interview with DEF LEPPARD singer Joe Elliott at this year’s edition of the Download festival, which is being held June 10-12, 2011 at Donington Park in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chats below.
DEF LEPPARD‘s new live album, “Mirror Ball”, is likely to sell between 15,000 and 20,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to industry web site Hits Daily Double. The estimate was based on one-day sales reports compiled after the record arrived in stores on June 7.
“Mirror Ball” is available exclusively at Walmart and Sam’s Club locations in the United States and Canada. The album includes a 50-minute DVD that contains live performances and intimate backstage footage of the band captured on the road. A special limited vinyl edition is also available. “Mirror Ball” is also available online, marking the first time the band’s music was officially available for digital purchase.
“Mirror Ball” features a mix of live DEF LEPPARD classics (recorded throughout The Sparkle Lounge Tour), three brand new studio songs and the aforementioned bonus DVD. “Mirror Ball” is DEF LEPPARD‘s first ever live album and features rock classics such as “Animal”, “Pour Some Sugar On Me”, “Photograph”, “Nine Lives” and “Rock Of Ages”. The album also brings together three brand new studio tracks — “Undefeated”, “Kings Of The World” and “It’s All About Believin'” — taking their place with ease within this classic setlist.
