Def Leppard announces Las Vegas residency

The band will take over the Zappos Theater at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas beginning Aug. 14. The Zappos Theater was named in February 2018 as part of a multi-year partnership between Caesars Entertainment and Zappos.com, with the theater becoming the first true nexus of nightlife and live concert-style entertainment in Las Vegas.

Def Leppard will spend a majority of a month playing dates for fans, with appearances scheduled for Aug. 14, 16, 17, 20, 23, 24, 29 and 31, as well as Sept. 1, 4, 6 and 7. Tickets for the “Def Leppard Hits Vegas: The Sin City Residency” will go on sale Friday, Feb. 22 at 10AM PT / 1PM ET and can be purchased online through Ticketmaster or in person at the Planet Hollywood box office.

The group previously played a residency in Las Vegas a few years back with their “Viva Hysteria” run. We had a chance to speak with guitarist Vivian Campbell ahead of the announcement about the upcoming residency, and also got his thoughts on the band’s upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.
