On a sun soaked Sunday in 2009, British rock legends Def Leppard brought the Download Festival for that year to a close with a triumphant set packed with all their hits and a few hidden gems to boot. One of the most popular songs on the night was the rendition of their biggest hit from their Diamond certified album Hysteria, Pour Some Sugar On Me, and the video of that song from Download 2009 is below for your viewing pleasure:
Def Leppard’s performance went down so well they were invited back two years later to headline the opening night of the 2011 Download Festival, which, whilst still very enjoyable wasn’t able to match the 2009 show. Perhaps the pissing rain had something to do with it!
Tickets for the 2013 Download Festival featuring Iron Maiden, Slipknot, Rammstein, Black Stone Cherry, Enter Shikari, Limp Bizkit and over 100 bands are still available now from the official festival website www.downloadfestival.co.uk as well as all the usual online ticketing websites. Stay tuned as we continue our build up to the Download Festival with a new classic video every day plus the final part of our exclusive preview of the event will be landing tomorrow!
