Def Leppard have deconstructed and rebuilt not only some of their most well-known tracks
Featuring a selection of footage captured on shoot for the album’s atmospheric album artwork, whilst nodding to the original Animal Official Video, this new 4K video exemplifies the re-imagining of the band’s biggest hits, and the drama of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as featured on “Drastic Symphonies”.
Joe Elliott says: “‘Animal” was our first UK hit, 10 years after we formed. And, all this time later, thanks to a beautiful meeting of classic and classical, it sounds as fresh to my ears now as it did when it first came out.”

Last year Def Leppard released their critically and commercially acclaimed 12th studio album “Diamond Star Halos” which charted all over the world including a top 5 and top 10 in both the UK and North America. In January the band scored a UK No 1 Netflix film with their cameo in acclaimed movie “Bank Of Dave”. Joe Elliott is currently riding high in charts across the world with his guest vocal on the Ghost track “Spillways”.
2022 saw Def Leppard play a SOLD OUT stadium tour across North America with Motley Crue – selling over 1.3 million tickets. Following from the stellar run of dates, the bands amazed audiences throughout Central and South America earlier this year. In May, June and July the must see tour of 2023 comes to Europe, including a stop at the iconic Wembley Stadium on the 1st July. The band will then return to the USA for more live dates in August 2023.
