Live At 45

Def Leppard’s journey of a thousand miles began with a single step 45 years ago.

On July 18, 1978, Def Leppard played their first-ever concert together inside of a school. Their take-home pay? Five pounds! That would be worth roughly 50 bucks today.

What could the Leps possibly spent their first-ever pay-day on?

--A coffee and a sandwich at a café

--A new book

--A record album

--10 Big Macs

--Fish & chips for about 20 people

--20 cigarettes; or

**25 pints of beer

**my money is on this given the Leps’ reputation as legendary drinkers back in the day.

45 years later. Def Leppard are selling out arenas all over the world, most recently with Motley Crue.
