Slip­ping Def Lep­pard in

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Music -

BON Jovi meets Def Lep­pard in a show not to be missed at Me­trop­o­lis Fre­man­tle this week­end.

WA Bon Jovi trib­ute band Slip­pery When Wet has ex­panded their reper­toire, adding a sec­ond lead singer and a brand new Def Lep­pard trib­ute set.

Band mem­ber An­drew Di Ste­fano said when he put the Bon Jovi trib­ute to­gether in 2012 the plan was al­ways to in­cor­po­rate some Def Lep­pard in the fu­ture.

“All of my other friends in the band are also big fans of Def Lep­pard, so the tran­si­tion to fo­cus on a sec­ond con­cept felt very nat­u­ral for all of us,” he said.

“Although pre-pro­duc­tion and re­hearsals be­gan about the same time last year, we débuted the Hys­te­ria show late in 2014, so this will be the sec­ond time we are per­form­ing both sets.

“The re­cep­tion we re­ceived at this show was huge. It brought in a lot of Def Lep­pard fans, as well as fur­ther sat­isfy those who come to see our Bon Jovi show, as many of them are fans of both bands, which is a for­mula that has proven to work quite well.”

Slip­pery When Wet is per­form­ing at Me­trop­o­lis Fre­man­tle on April 26.
