Def Leppard Opens Virtual Museum (Video)
Def Leppard’s got a photograph–lots of them—and they are going to be on display with other artifacts from the band’s history with the launch of a virtual museum.
Dubbed the “Leppard Vault,” the band is displaying rare photos, videos, artifacts, interviews, audio commentary, merchandise and more.
The band had some downtime in 2020 due to the the Covid-19pandemic, and used their time off the road to unearth memorabilia from their basements, attics, closets garages and storage units to create a story of the group’s 44 years in rock and roll.
Says leader Joe Elliott: “After months of digging through our personal rock and roll closets (and warehouses, no less!), we present you our history! Our historic vault will continually be updated with installments you may have seen with some gems I promise you’ve never heard or seen! It’s a true backstage pass for any Def Leppard or rock and roll fan! Please…step inside and walk this way!”
An “On the Road” section will give fans a clear picture of life backstage with images of photos, instruments, backstage passes, and tour itineraries.
Another section, “Jacket Required,” offers pics of the band’s most iconic looks and clothing items the band mates have worn onstage. “All I’ve Got Is a Photograph” features promotional pics and other historic images. There’s also a track-by-track look at 1995’s Vault album celebrating the compilation’s 25th anniversary.
In addition, limited-edition reproductions of Def Leppard memorabilia and other exclusive items are available for purchase at the site.
The store is now open for registrations at LeppardVault.Com
