Def Leppard: Quality Fan-Filmed Footage From Dublin Posted Online

Quality fan-filmed video footage of Def Leppard's June 8, 2011 concert at the 02 arena in Dublin, Ireland can be viewed below.

In a recent interview with Classic Rock Revisited, Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen stated about the band's live performances, "We are the best live band I know of. We do all of our own vocals. We don't use samples and we don't cheat at all. We are the real deal. We are a great live band, actually."

When asked why it took Def Leppard so long to release a live album, Collen said, "We have never had the time. We would tour and then the label would say that we need a new studio album. This was the first real break we have had in thirty years. It sounds ridiculous, but it is true. In 2010 we took a break from touring. We record every live show we do but this one was recorded over the last couple of tours. Each song is from a different night. We were able to put a lot of time and energy into this because we had the time off. I think it really worked great."
