Def Leppard Release Five-Song Acoustic Medley for iTunes
Def Leppard has cut five acoustic songs performed during their 'Rock of Ages' tour for a medley released to iTunes today (Dec. 18). The seven-and-a-half minute single download features a seemless blend of acoustic hits from the '90s and early 2000s.
For $1.29 one gets snippets of 'Where Does Love Go When It Dies,' 'Now,' 'When Love and Hate Collide,' 'Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad' and 'Two Steps Behind.' Each song gets a verse and chorus before an effortless transition to the next portion.
"We decided to change the acoustic section of the set for the 'Rock of Ages' tour, and what we ended up with just grew into a really magical experience every night," singer Joe Elliott tells Noisecreep. "We all enjoyed doing it so much and it was so well received by our audience, we decided to do a studio recording of it. I think it complements our main body of work very well."
In March, Def Leppard will begin their Las Vegas residency. The three-week 'Viva Hysteria!' show at the Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino will feature their hits plus their classic 'Hysteria' album in its entirety.
