Def Leppard - "Mirrorball" - 6/7/11 - first-ever live album



"Mirrorball," Def Leppard's first* live album, is coming on June 7th. Tracks were recorded over the past two years. There are also three new studio tracks and a bonus DVD.
Tracklisting:

CD1
1. Rock! Rock! (Till You Drop)
2. Rocket
3. Animal
4. C'Mon C'Mon
5. Make Love Like A Man
6. Too Late For Love
7. Foolin'
8. Nine Lives
9. Love Bites
10. Rock On

CD2
1. Two Steps Behind
2. Bringin' On The Heartbreak
3. Switch 625
4. Hysteria
5. Armageddon It
6. Photograph
7. Pour Some Sugar On Me
8. Rock Of Ages
9. Let's Get Rocked
10. Action
11. Bad Actress
12. Undefeated (new studio track)
13. Kings Of The World (new studio track)
14. It's All About Believin' (new studio track)

DVD
50 minutes of live performances and backstage footage
Following the path of KISS and AC/DC, this will be a Walmart & Sam's Club exclusive in North America. The rest of the world will find it at normal retail. It's also the first Def leppard music that will be available digitally (iTunes, etc)





The band is also releasing a coffeetable book, "DEF LEPPARD: THE DEFINITIVE VISUAL HISTORY," in the summer.



*It's the first live album sold as a live album. If you want a really good live album, the Pyromania Deluxe Edition's bonus disc is a concert from 1983 that kicks some serious, serious ass.

I'll stick with the bonus disc on the Pyromania reissue.

If it's cheap enough at Wal-Mart, I'd probably get it.

If this was recorded anytime after 1989 I'm not interested.

First ever "official" Live album release. There have been other shows that were released via video, bonus discs, or bootlegs. Terrible choice for an album name, though, as others have pointed out.

Joe has said in interviews that the name is a reference to their last album, "Songs from the Sparkle Lounge." So... I guess the mirrorball is where the sparkle comes from.

Elliot's has gotten really bad. We walked out of the summer tour, couldn't take it anymore.

I kind of wonder if the only thing "live" on this release will be the crowd noise.

I don't really like live CD prefer to have live DVD. I wish bands like Night Ranger would release a DVD.Def Leppard were a great band in the early 80s to mid 80. They still a pretty good band

Is Mirrorball the most common album name of all time?

Let's see:
Sarah
Prince
Neil Young

Anyone else?

I would think 'Greatest Hits' would be more common

Nothing else could come close. That is one hell of a bonus disk!

I saw them a couple years ago and I could be wrong but most of the vocals sounded canned to me.

When I saw them a couple of years back all their new material sounded like it was being played off a cd. The vocals on all their old songs sounded like shit.

Seeing them tomorrow night in West Palm Beach, FL. They are my wife's favorite group. I have NO choice. She used to follow them around Florida every time they toured... right now she's up with her girlfriend at the WPB Ritz-Carlton trying to get more pictures with the band.

At least that's what her official story is.

Sigh....
