Def Leppard was formed in 1977 and were originally based out of South Yorkshire, England. However, in the early 1980s, the band’s popularity skyrocketed. Their 1981 album High ‘n’ Dry was a huge success, and their following albums were even more popular. By the time Hysteria came out in 1987, they were one of the most popular metal bands in the world. This album has since sold over 12 million copies, and has many hit songs that you can still hear on the radio. These include “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” “Hysteria,” and “Animal.” The band’s lineup changed in 1992, but it has remained the same since. Over the years, they have adopted a variety of different sounds within their music, but the heart and soul of their music still is heavy metal and hard rock in its nature. Many great artists have cited Def Leppard as a big influence on their music. Taylor Swift is perhaps the biggest among current performing artists, and she has even performed concerts with Def Leppard in the past.
Tickets to Def Leppard are still big money items today, almost 40 years after the band was formed. If you grew up rocking out to them but have never seen them, their sets have changed a bit, but they are still the high energy, great performers that they were back in the mid-80s. This is one of the best bands of all-time, and VH1 has even included them in their top 100 artists ever. Catch them on their current tour while you still can.
