The passionate devotion of a true Def Leppard fan spans the ages. Here is a video tribute featuring the song 'Kings Of The World' paired with inspired images of those who have loved the band since their teens and those who are now in their teens and have found a new love for the band. 
 
September 2012 Def Leppard ended their 'Rock Of Ages' Tour which spanned the U.S. and dates in Canada and Mexico. Fans from all over the world traveled miles to see the band perform.  Enjoy the celebration. Def Leppard Thanks You!!!

You guys did a great show in Nevada and in Albuquerque. I went to both concerts, when I saw the one in Las Vegas I had to see it in Albuquerque. I was happy to hear to sing It's all about believing, then I got to hear you sing Make love like a man. That was cool to me, Joe I still have a great voice and you are a still a HOT SHOT to me!

You can't help but tear up a bit watching this... thank you, guys, for giving me the night of my life! July 7th, 2012; I came and saw you, not long out of the hospital, on oxygen, a heart monitor, in a wheelchair with an ankle broken in 7 places and found that I had no ramp to get down to my seat at the DTE Music Theater in Clarkston, Michigan. The attendants tried to make me park at the back of the roofed shed, and I stood up, on that broken ankle, grabbed the guy in front of me by the shirt and said.. "If I have to CRAWL down those stairs, I WILL get down to my 5th row seat!" There was about a 30 second pause, then he stashed my wheelchair and helped me down all those stairs to my seat himself!
It was agonizing, and worth every second of pain... and it didn't stop me, from the moment UNDEFEATED's drumbeats started, till after you left the stage, from being up on that bad ankle, screaming, singing along and laughing in joy.
While I hope to be less challenged at your next concert, and there WILL be a next time, I will be there!

Congratulations to all the US fans that had their picture featured in the video. It must feel great to be a part of it. Kind of like how I felt when I realised I could be heard shouting "YEEEEEAH!" at the end of Bad Actress on the Mirror Ball album.

What you have done here is so warm, touching, and true. It takes a special group of men to show us just how much you care about us. Def Leppard, as we have seen, also care very much about the world around them. I am so proud to be a fan of yours! Whenever I go to a Leppard show I feel an immediate and strong bond with all of the fans at the show. I likewise feel a bond with you whenever I listen to your music. When you come onstage, I feel like dear friends are about to entertain us and share your music with us. Your music has not only touched my heart; it has also become part of my soul. Thank you so much for this tribute, and I know that you and your music will last for many years to come. xxoo

Oh my goodness!!! This has got to be one of the best days of my life!!! I am checkin' out this video and I realize that I am in two of the pictures, each one at completely different concerts with my big cheesy smile!!! Yes, I am a truly devoted fan ever since I was in grade school. There's nothing like playing "Pour Some Sugar on Me" in the car turning it up as loud as it can go and singing it at the top of my lungs. My daughter got married a few weeks ago and all I asked was that she let the DJ play my song. What a blast that was! Everyone who knows me knows your are my #1 band and absolute favorite. My husband gets a kick out of watching me sing along at your concerts and my friends and family think it's the funniest thing watching me dance to your music. Thank you so much for making my day and for recognizing your truly devoted fans!!! Woo hoo!!!
