Def Leppard Announce Rock N Roll Fantasy Camp In Las Vegas
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.15.2013



Billboard reports that Def Leppard have announced a Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp that will take place April 4-7 in Las Vegas during the band's residency at The Joint in the Hard Rock Casino and Hotel. They will be mentors and instructors, helping with songs as well as general playing and performing techniques.

Phil Collen, along with guitarist Vivian Campbell, has been a part of previous Fantasy Camps. He said: "It was actually really cool, although I lost my voice the last time. You'd go work with the different bands they have there and it'd be like, 'Can you sing this?' It was 'Pour Some Sugar on Me' in one room, 'Fallen' in the next room. I came away from there kind of beat-up, actually, but it was actually really fun. So I'm looking forward to that as well. I know what's in store. I know the hard work the mentors do. It was like that Bruce Lee movie, 'Game of Death.' There were literally 10 different rooms, and each one you'd go into was very different. Ronnie Montrose would treat it in a different way than George Lynch. That was really the exciting part for me."

Fantasy Camp founder David Fishof says this is the second time the program was dedicated to a single band. Lita Ford and others will be a part of the program after Cheap Trick a few years ago.

He added: "My philosophy is why not get the best musicians who came together and collaborated on the music as a band?. People were telling me, 'Hey, you should get (Def Lep singer) Joe Elliott, he'd be great.' And I said, 'Y'know what? They're going to be out here. Let's get the whole band.' To me it's the ultimate experience of Def Leppard for musicians and singers."

You can get information on the camp at this website.

Collen says that the band's members are preparing individually for the Hard Rock residency, which will have performances of 1987's Hysteria in its entirety along with hits and "deep cuts" from the band's history.

He said: "We're all at home doing our homework. Some of the ('Hysteria') songs we've actually never played; we did do 'Excitable,' but only a couple of times, and some of the songs Vivian's never played, ever. There's so many subtleties and weird things going off in all the arrangements, so we really have to pick them apart and figure out what we were doing all those years ago, and then re-create it."

They also plan to write material for their next album, the follow-up to 2008's Songs From the Sparkle Lounge.
