Def Leppard Limited By Success

(RockAAA) Vivian Campbell says Def Leppard have already worked out the set-lists for their summer shows as there is little room for variation because there is a core of tracks fans simply expect to hear.

The guitarist does admit the band try to make the set-lists slightly different year on year while also mixing up the arrangement in some tracks too.

"The set list kind of picks itself. There's a bit of a double-edged sword, having a really strong catalogue. People expect the hits, particularly in America and particularly with the nature of the concert industry nowadays, insofar as when we package with other acts." Campbell told Guitar International. "There's gonna be a certain percentage of the audience that is there primarily for Heart, and they're only gonna respond to the big Leppard hits. So it's not like we're going and playing to 100% Def Leppard audience.

"If that was the case, we would definitely dig deeper into our catalogue and play more obscure songs.
