Watch DEF LEPPARD Frontman JOE ELLIOTT Literally Pour Some Sugar on Various Objects

DEF LEPPARD has released a video in which singer Joe Elliott can be seen pouring sugar on various items, including a small chocolate cupcake, a burger, a single red rose, a toy guitar, a portable stereo, the "Hysteria" album, a toy dog and ballerina.

The clip, which can be seen below, was made available as part of promotional activities for DEF LEPPARD's joint North American tour with JOURNEY.

DEF LEPPARD's 1988 hit, "Pour Some Sugar On Me", peaked at No. 2 on Billboard's Top 100 singles chart and started an explosion of over a million copies of the "Hysteria" album to be shipped in a single day.

Asked if he ever gets tired of playing the DEF LEPPARD classics over and over again, guitarist Vivian Campbell said in an interview, "To be honest, yeah, it would be great to go out and do obscure stuff. Instead of playing 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' every show, it would be more fun for us to go out and play an album cut from the 'High 'N' Dry' album or something. Having said that, every time that we go on stage we're playing in front of a different audience so the audience becomes like the sixth member of the group and it's exciting for the audience because even though we've played 'Photograph' a million times before, that might be their first time hearing it."

DEF LEPPARD and JOURNEY's 58-city tour will kick off on May 21 in Hartford, Connecticut and run through October 6 in Los Angeles.
