Def Leppard guitarist Vivian Campbell was recently interviewed at this year’s NAMM convention that took place January 24-27 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California and you can check out that interview below.
Vivian talks about the upcoming Viva Hysteria! Las Vegas residency, during which the band will play its 1987 album, Hysteria, stating:
“That’s the really exciting thing for us. I mean, as much as we are really looking forward to the shows, we’re only doing three shows a week — Wednesday, Friday and Saturday — so the days off in between, we’re actually gonna write. So it’s different for us. When we’re on tour, we don’t get in a writing mode, because you’re in a bus every night and travelling. It’s not very often that the five of us in Def Leppard are in one place together with time on our hands, so we’ve got a little Pro Tools rig and we’re just gonna actually record in our hotel room while we’re there — get some new ideas for some long-overdue new Def Leppard.”
Make sure to get your tickets to the show. They’re on sale now and start at $49.50, with floor seats going for $125.
