Def Leppard are to release a limited edition live album. One Night Only Live at The Leadmill Sheffield May 19 2023 was recorded at the 900-capacity venue during a warm-up show before last year's European Stadium Tour dates with Mötley Crüe

The double silver vinyl album will be released on April 20 - this year's official Record Store Day – as is limited to just 6000 copies. The 13 tracks include the opening cover of The Sweet's Action, a version of Too Late for Love performed in the style of last year's Drastic Symphonies album, and UK live debuts for Fire It Up and Kick. Full tracklist below. 

Last month Def Leppard announced plans to release an expanded, multi-disc version of their era-defining 1983 album Pyromania. The reissue, which hits stores on April 26, will contain a host of demos and rough mixes, as well as the previously unreleased song No You Can’t Do That.

And in July the band hit the road for a run of North American stadium shows with Journey. Support at each of the stadium shows will be supplied by either Cheap Trick, the Steve Miller Band or Heart. Full dates below.
