WATCH: Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott and Rick Savage Re-visit the Place It All Began

Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliott and Rick Savage revisited one of their first rehearsal spaces, the Portland Works Spoon Factory in Sheffield, UK, during a recent interview on BBC TV’s The One Show.  Host Carrie Grant spoke with the band mates about their 40 years as a band – from first show in the old factory space when they had to invite an audience of “mates” to fill the space (the “rent-a crowd” as Savage called them), to the accident that severed drummer Rick Allen’s arm, to hitting the top of the charts with their massive hit “Pour Some Sugar on Me.”

“We could either work in a place like this making cutlery or we could work in a place like this making music… and it was kind of a no-brainer,” said Elliott as he looked around the converted factory.

Check the full interview below, which includes a live acoustic rendition of “Pour Some Sugar on Me” by Elliot and Savage.

Def Leppard has announced that they will be teaming up with Journey for a 58-city co-headlining tour which will kick-off in Hartford, CT on May 21, 2018 and finish up in Los Angeles, CA on October 6, 2018. This is the year for some amazing co-headling tours. Styx and Joan Jett recently announced their plan to hit the road together, Chicago and REO Speedwagon are also heading out on a joint tour this summer, Hall & Oates will join forces with Train, the Doobie Brothers will head out with Steely Dan and Jeff Beck and Paul Rodgers’ co-headlining tour will feature an opening performance by Ann Wilson of Heart.

After the joint tour, Def Leppard will be heading home to the UK for a series of shows with special guests Cheap Trick.
