Def Leppard: major announcement coming soon

Def Leppard have posted the following update on their website:

Leppard fans.....

The countdown is on for Def Leppard to make a MAJOR announcement to the world! Stay tuned, will be reporting official news soon.....!

So what could this 'major' news be....

We’ve already reported that Leppard will release their first live album in May, which will contain “three new studio tracks,” according to an interview guitarist Phil Collen did at the NAMM Convention in Anaheim last month.

A Leppard box set is in the works, guitarist Vivian Campbell told Rush On Rock last month. “There are plans for a career-encompassing box set. It will happen but we need to sort a few things out contractually. As it happens we’re talking to our old label Universal about re-signing with them.”

There’s also been rumors about a summer US tour with Kansas and Heart.

We’ll wait for official word from the Leppard camp on this, to see if the “major news’ is any, or all, of the above three items.
