Def Leppard have announced “Live at The Leadmill, Sheffield,” a special one night only intimate hometown show.
Def Leppard are set to play at the iconic Sheffield venue, The Leadmill, on May 19, on the eve of the band’s biggest ever European tour and the launch of their new album, Drastic Symphonies.
One of Britain’s greatest ever rock bands, Def Leppard are scheduled to start their U.K. and European tour at a sold out Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane on May 22.
The 850 capacity venue – The Leadmill – is a vital part of the Sheffield and national U.K. music scene and is amongst many of the small U.K. music venues threatened with closure. Net proceeds from ticket sales from The Leadmill show will be donated to Music Venue Trust, who diligently work to help struggling U.K. music venues.
“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!” said frontman Joe Elliott. “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 UK clubs alive.and to coincide with the release of our symphonic record, “Drastic Symphonies”, on the 19th of May. It’s all very special,” he added.
Tickets for The Leadmill go on general sale at 9 am on May 12. There is also a special pre-sale from 9 am on May 11. To get access to the pre-sale, fans can pre-order a copy of Drastic Symphonies on any format from the Official Def Leppard U.K. Store before 5 pm on May 10.
