Def Leppard to Perform at Teenage Cancer Trust Benefit Concert

Just announced – we will be playing at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Sunday, 25 March for theTeenage Cancer Trust benefit concert!

Rock Brigade exclusive fan club pre-sale will begin this week. Details on

Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall announce their final headline acts for 2018; Britain’s biggest reggae band UB40 Featuring Ali, Astro & Mickey, An Evening of Comedy hosted by Russell Howard, multi-Grammy-winning Nile Rodgers & CHIC, The Who star Roger Daltrey, and British rock legends Def Leppard.

Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott says, “When Def Leppard and The Who played together last October, Roger asked us if we’d like to contribute to the Teenage Cancer Trust shows this year. Having performed myself with Roger and The Who at the Shepherds Bush Empire back in 2014 solo it was a no brainer to say yes as a band. It is a privilege and an honour to be involved with such a worthwhile event”.

Over 235 artists and comedians have played Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall since 2000, raising over £27 million for young people with cancer. These incredible shows have played a vital role in helping the charity to provide 28 specialist cancer units and over 60 nursing and support staff in NHS hospitals across the UK, making an incredible difference to young people diagnosed with cancer around the country. But for every young person Teenage Cancer Trust currently supports, there’s another they can’t. Every penny they raise goes towards their goal of reaching every young person with cancer who needs them.

New Delta Deep Album “East Coast Live” + Whiskey Video

East Coast Live is available now, you can pick it up for yourself here. presents the exclusive premiere of the newest live video from Phil Collen’s ferocious blues band.


Delta Deep—the bluesy side project from Def Leppard’s Phil Collen, Stone Temple Pilot’s Robert DeLeo, frontwoman Debbi Blackwell-Cook and drummer Forrest Robinson—just released a new live album, East Coast Live. To celebrate, the band teamed up with Guitar World to premiere the video for one of the album’s best tracks, “Whiskey.” You can watch it above.

“I originally came up with this chord sequence about forty years ago, when I learnt all of these cool jazz chords,” Collen said of “Whiskey.” “However, it didn’t really have any relevance until we started writing the first Delta Deep album then I just started singing ‘I found me this place, where the whiskey drinks the blues’ and Debbi Blackwell-Cook just saw the whole story of the song totally mapped out for her, as she’d just lost her son to gun violence, and it wrote itself for her.”

Late 2018 will see the band deliver what many UK and Eire fans have been waiting for… the“HYSTERIA” album performed in full plus other Def Leppard hits across eleven arena dates in December 2018 with special guest CHEAP TRICK!
