DEF LEPPARD performed its smash hit "Pour Some Sugar on Me" on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Friday, October 13. Watch the performance online at YouTube.com.
In other news, the following update has been posted at DEF LEPPARD's official web site:
"Fans who witness last night's [Friday, October 13] show at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, were treated to a slightly different encore than what the band usually presents at the end of their shows. First of all, due to curfew restrictions, the band could only play one encore song instead of the usual two — resulting in the omittance of 'Love Bites', the song they usually reserve for the lead-up to their finale anthem. However, the very performance of that last song surprised the thousands of fans at the Bowl when they realized that it was none other than country star Tim McGraw who jumped up on stage to sing along with 'Pour Some Sugar on Me'."
DEF LEPPARD singer Joe Elliott recently posted a message on the official DefLeppard.com web site stating the band band is "gonna try and get a new album done in time to tour in 2007." Elliott said the band was thinking about dates in Europe, where they played earlier this year, as well as heading to Japan and Australia. The singer did caution fans that nothing was set in stone, writing "Of course, anything can change — and lots of things probably will!!!! — but as of right now, that's our plan."
