Phil Collen re­veals Def Lep­pard’s plans for 2018.

Def Lep­pard gui­tarist Phil Collen has let slip that the band are plan­ning a se­ries of shows to com­mem­o­rate the thir­ti­eth an­niver­sary of their clas­sic al­bum.

Collen re­vealed the news while ap­pear­ing as a guest on Jonesy’s Juke­box, the ra­dio show of for­mer Sex Pis­tols gui­tarist Steve Jones. Asked whether Lep­pard were con­sid­er­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of per­form­ing Hys­te­ria in its en­tirety, he said: “We are. I know it’ll be next year we’re gonna go on tour. We’re get­ting some of­fers to play the whole al­bum all the way through. So we’ll be do­ing that.”

A few days ear­lier, at a fan gath­er­ing, singer Joe El­liott was more cir­cum­spect when the same ques­tion came up. “Watch this space,” he said. “There are go­ing to be shows next year, there’s prob­a­bly go­ing to be shows in the UK and they may well fea­ture an iconic al­bum in to­tal… or they might not.” DL
