Def Leppard drummer’s fine art collection to debut in Las Vegas

When Def Leppard take over the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas next month for their “VIVA Hysteria!” residency, fans will have more than just the live concerts to check out while in Sin City.

Leppard drummer Rick Allen will showcase his fine-art debut collection, "Electric Hand: Rhythm + Change", at the Martin Lawrence Galleries at the Forum Shops in Las Vegas.

From March 22 until April 10, Allen’s entire collection of rhythm on canvas will be on display, and fans are encouraged to visit the gallery while they are there to see it and own the final pieces available in the world.

There will also be two live question-and-answer events with Rick at the gallery where he will discuss the collection and meeting the public. The events will be on March 28 at 6:30 p.m. and on April 5 at 6:30 p.m. at the gallery. This is a free event, but fans are asked to RSVP with so that they can notify the gallery of their anticipated attendance.

To RSVP, please submit your email and the question-and-answer date you wish to attend here.

Allen is translating rhythm into a visual art medium through an extensive process involving drumbeat, light, photography, and graphic design. The result is a collection of abstract imagery built directly from Allen's rhythmic prowess. And as one of the pioneers in this new medium, Allen is holding true to a lifetime of breaking barriers and new ground.

Rick Allen is one of the most acclaimed drummers in the history of rhythm. His powerful and unique rhythmic voice has profoundly influenced the signature sound of Def Leppard. With "Electric Hand: Rhythm + Change", music and art lovers are witnessing Allen's rhythm translated into the medium of visual art.

Def Leppard will perform 11 shows in Las Vegas between March 22 and April 13.
