Def Leppard Rocked Hollywood for a Rare Club Performance (VIDEO)
It was a special lunchtime for several hundreds fans at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, Calif. on Tuesday as Def Leppard played a rare (and free) club gig to contest winners, patient fans that waited on line and specially invited guests.
It's all part of a rocking media blitz the band is in the midst of as they prepare for both their big summer tour and the upcoming release of a film that bares the name of the song the lunch concert kicked off with - "Rock of Ages."
As Phil Collen told Noisecreep recently, "We're looking forward to this gig because obviously we don't get a chance to play smaller venues anymore. It's fun to look people in the eye, slap hands and feel the crowd surge in in front of the stage."
The band played, among other hits, "Hysteria," "Foolin'" and "Pour Some Sugar on Me" before sitting down for a Q/A session with well-known Los Angeles radio personality Bob Coburn.
The full mini-concert airs on YouTube starting Thursday, June 8.
