VIDEO: Def Leppard tour rehearsals - part 1

Def Leppard return to live action next week with shows in Belfast, Dublin, and a headlining slot at the Download Festival.

Leppard’s new live album, “Mirrorball,” hits stores June 6 (UK), June 7 (internationally), Germany, Switzerland and Austria on June 17, France (June 23) and the rest of Europe on June 20.

The 2-disc set features a mix of live Leppard classics - recorded throughout The Sparkle Lounge Tour - three brand new studio songs, and a bonus DVD that contains live performances and intimate backstage footage captured on the road.

To launch the record, Leppard are releasing a series of behind-the-scenes video clips from their May 2011 tour rehearsals; the first one features techies joining guitarist Vivian Campbell as they work on sound levels, etc. in the rehearsal space.

Listen to see if you can recognize the song they're jamming on...
