DEF LEPPARD To Join Sheffield's 'Hall Of Fame'

According to 24dash.com, DEF LEPPARD will be inducted as the latest Sheffield Legends to join the city's "hall of fame" next week.

The five band members will take time out from rehearsing for a gig to unveil a bronze plaque immediately outside Sheffield Town Hall next Friday (June 16).

The band has come a long way since their first rehearsal in a spoon factory in Sheffield's Bramall Lane in November 1977.

Councillor Jan Wilson, Leader of Sheffield Council said: "DEF LEPPARD truly deserve their place as Sheffield Legends and have been great ambassadors for the city wherever they have performed throughout the world and the nominations they received reflected this. In terms of international record sales, they are up there with the top musicians of all time. I am looking forward to meeting them and thanking them personally."
