Joe Elliott Says New Def Leppard DVD is Not Actually A Movie

(hennemusic) Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott is sharing his thoughts on Las Vegas and the band's forthcoming DVD, "VIVA! Hysteria", in a new interview promoting the project.

"It's not Raiders Of The Lost Ark - it's not actually a movie," Elliott tells The Star. "It's a document of our residency in Las Vegas. The place is not tied into that old mentality of Frankie [Sinatra], Sammy Davis and Deano [Dean Martin] any more, or Wayne Newton, or Elvis.

"The residencies now are Mötley Crüe, Guns N' Roses, Def Leppard, Elton John, Rod Stewart. The Who was in just after us and Prince was following us as well. It's a very rock and roll town now."

The UK rockers played 11 shows at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino this past spring, following in the footsteps of Motley Crue and Guns N' Roses. more on this story
