DEF LEPPARD's Second Las Vegas Residency Is Being Filmed For DVD Release

DEF LEPPARD is filming its shows this weekend during the band's second Las Vegas residency at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino for an upcoming DVD. No further details have yet been made available.

At the opening concert of the residency on August 14, the band's 23-song set included two tracks which had never been performed before — "Let Me Be" from "X" and "We Belong" from "Def Leppard" — along with rarely played cuts "Die Hard The Hunter" (aired for the first time since 1992), "Slang" (first time since 2013), "Billy's Got A Gun" (first time since 2002), "Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad" (first time since 2005) and "Now" (first time since 2003). There was also a mini-acoustic set in the middle, consisting of four tracks.

The band will play two more "Def Leppard Hits Vegas: The Sin City Residency" shows: September 6 and 7.

DEF LEPPARD played its first Las Vegas residency six years ago at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel, a pioneering effort for a rock band.

Zappos Theater has previously hosted residencies from Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Lionel Richie and has announced residencies from Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera.

Tickets for "Def Leppard Hits Vegas: The Sin City Residency" went on sale in February.

DEF LEPPARD's latest greatest-hits collection titled "The Story So Far - The Best Of", was released in November.

The band was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in March. The honor came after the British rockers got the most votes in the Rock Hall's online fan poll.
