Def Leppard- Mirrorball

6/26/2012

“Mirror Ball”, Def Leppard’s first ever live album, was recorded at various venues worldwide during the band’s Sparkle Lounge Tour 2008-2009. Produced and mixed by the band and Ronan McHugh, it features a wealth of 21 tracks, among which beautiful renditions of such hits like “Animal”, “Love Bites”, “Bringin’ On The Heartbreak”, “Armageddon It”, “Photograph”, “Pour Some Sugar On Me” and “Love Bites”. And if that was yet not enough the band has added three brand-new studio tracks and guess what: all three are excellent, classic Leppard tracks. Disc 3 is a DVD with footage filmed/recorded from the same Sparkle Lounge Tour, including live renditions of the tracks “Rock! Rock! (Till You Drop)”, “Armageddon It”, “Pour Some Sugar On Me” and “Hysteria” as well as some other stuff such as the very emotional moment (at Donington) where Joe Elliott honours drummer Rick Allen for his fight to come back after he had lost an arm over 20 years ago. Absolute recommendable stuff, if you ask me! Also to be found on the DVD are the music videos for “Nine Lives” and “C’Mon C’Mon”. As always with Leppard, fans had to be patient, but this first ever live album is surely a must have!
