To celebrate the summer of “Rock Of Ages”, DEF LEPPARD has recorded new versions of “Pour Some Sugar On Me” and “Rock Of Ages”. The songs will be available worldwide on iTunes, Amazon, and all other digital music retailers June 4.
The soundtrack to the upcoming film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical “Rock Of Ages”, which showcases popular rock songs from the ’70s and ’80s, features the cast — Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand and Julianne Hough — singing some of the greatest hits of the “hair-band” era.
Due to be released June 5 — ten days before the film hits theatres — “Rock Of Ages: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” includes Cruise‘s renditions of DEF LEPPARD‘s “Pour Some Sugar On Me” and GUNS N’ ROSES‘ “Paradise City”.
DEF LEPPARD will make a return to the United States this June with a massive summer tour which will include fellow rockers POISON and LITA FORD.
DEF LEPPARD‘s influential career includes numerous hit singles and ground-breaking multi-platinum albums — including two of the best-selling albums of all time, “Pyromania” and “Hysteria”. Most recently, the band released their first live album, “Mirror Ball: Live More” last summer, which rose to the Top 20 on The Billboard 200 chart. The album captures the group’s legendary concert experience, bringing together live versions of classic LEPPARD hits such as “Rock Of Ages”, “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “Foolin'”.
With 100 million records sold worldwide and two prestigious Diamond Awards to their credit, DEF LEPPARD — Joe Elliott (vocals), Vivian Campbell (guitar), Phil Collen (guitar), Rick “Sav” Savage (bass) and Rick Allen (drums) — continues to be one of the most important forces in rock music. Over the course of their career, the band has produced a series of classic groundbreaking albums that set the sound for generations of music fans and artists alike. The group’s spectacular live shows, filled with powerful melodic rock anthems, have become synonymous with their name. For the past thirty years the band’s concerts have become must-see events and have quickly made them an institution in the touring industry, as they continue to sell out arenas worldwide.
