Def Leppard Postpone VIVA! Pyromania

. (hennemusic) Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen has revealed that the band will delay its second Las Vegas residency to 2016 due to touring and recording commitments.

Originally planned for last fall, the group were aiming to follow-up their "VIVA! Hysteria" residency in the spring of 2013 with a "VIVA! Pyromania" series.

"Pyromania", the 1983 release certified 10 times US platinum in 2004, was the Sheffield, England hard rock band's breakthrough album, predating "Hysteria" by four years.

"We are planning on going back," Collen tells WRFX Charlotte, NC. "It keeps getting put off, though. First, it was supposed to be the middle of last year, then it was the end of last year. We keep missing the deadline, because we have stuff, you know, on all the time.

"It won't be able to happen this year, because, I think, most of our tour dates are already kind of solidified; you know, all around the world. So it's probably gonna be earlier next year, hopefully." Stream the interview with Collen here.
