Def Leppard Post Official Video From NFL Pregame Show
As we previously reported, the group took the stage prior to the game to deliver a brief set that included 'Animal,' 'Let's Get Rocked' and 'Pour Some Sugar on Me,' all performed before a London crowd that was witnessing Def Leppard's first show with Trixter guitarist Steve Brown -- filling in temporarily for Vivian Campbell, who's been briefly sidelined as he undergoes the latest round of treatment to conquer cancer.
Enthused vocalist Joe Elliott before the game, "Having most recently visited Wembley in May to watch Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-final, I know what the atmosphere in the ground is like for ‘our’ football, so I’m really looking forward to performing there before the NFL game -- and, of course, soaking up the excitement of the actual match. I can’t wait!"
Brown will stick with the band for the handful of dates they have scheduled through the end of the year, with Campbell waiting in the wings to return in 2015 for a fresh round of touring and a new Def Leppard LP. In the meantime, watch some hi-def footage of the group performing a few of their biggest hits while accompanied by cheerleaders.
