Just released is Def Leppard's new concert film and double CD, titled And There Will Be A Next Time - Live From Detroit. The DVD/Blu-ray was captured on July 15th, 2016 in Clarkston, Michigan's DTE Energy Music Theatre -- still lovingly referred to as "Pine Knob" by Detroiters after its longstanding original name. Along with such era-defining hits as "Photograph," "Animal," "Pour Some Sugar On Me," and "Rock Of Ages," the collection also features newer tunes, such as "Man Enough" and the set's opening track -- "Let's Go."
Joe Elliott told us that the band has been together for so long, that they've come full circle and are more comfortable in sounding like Def Leppard than ever before:
"They have to have our identity in them or they might as well be Tom Waits, y'know, or R.E.M. We have a signature sound that we're not scared of anymore. I think we were, right around the Slang period of our career (in 1996). We were frightening to death of ourselves, I think -- but not so much anymore. Y'know, so, they've got the classic Leppard trademark of big guitars, drums, vocal harmonies to the high heavens, y'know?"
