DEF LEPPARD Performs Intimate London Gig

BBC News reports: To mark the release of DEF LEPPARD's new album "Songs From The Sparkle Lounge" predicted to go Top Five [in the UK] this weekend just 200 fans got to see them storm through their greatest hits at north London's Islington Academy.

It was a rare opportunity for the audience to eyeball singer Joe Elliott, bassist Rick "Sav" Savage, drummer Rick Allen and guitarists Phil Collen and Viv Campbell, who are more used to playing North American stadium shows.

"There's a certain safety in stadiums," Elliott says.

"With a tiny gig like the one we just did, you can hear everything the audience is saying about you, and you have to watch out where they're putting their beer glasses.

"A couple of times I wanted to lift my mic-stand but I was worried about taking off Sav's head."
