Net proceeds from ticket sales from The Leadmill show are being donated to Music Venue Trust who diligently work to help struggling U.K. music venues.

Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott said: “Sheffield is in the very DNA of this band! We are ecstatic to be starting the European leg of our world tour at home at Bramall Lane! When thinking of a warm-up, it made sense to do a special set at The Leadmill, in the city where it all started. We know there are a lot of small music venues struggling across the U.K., so we wanted to give back to what gave to us. The net proceeds from the evening will go directly to Music Venue Trust in an effort to keep U.K. clubs alive…and to coincide with the release of our symphonic record, ‘Drastic Symphonies’. It’s all very special!”

Meanwhile, Def Leppard and Journey tour together this summer! So far, 23 dates are scheduled, starting July 6 in St. Louis, Missouri and hits Orlando, Atlanta, Chicago, Toronto, Boston, Houston, Phoenix, Los Angeles and more before finishing in Denver on September 8. Openers include Steve Miller Band, Heart and Cheap Trick!

In your opinion, what’s the best live-album? They’re often tough to capture.
