Singer Joe Elliott commented:
“Five years ago, we played our first-ever residency in Las Vegas which was relatively new ground for a rock band giving this kind of experience… I have to say, we really enjoyed it! Being in one place for the best part of a month is vastly different to our normal city to city touring routine. Breaking this cycle adds another element to the experience for both us and the audience. We look forward to seeing you at the Zappos Theater this summer!”
Jason Gastwirth, president of entertainment at Caesars Entertainment, added:
“Planet Hollywood transformed the entertainment landscape in Las Vegas with the first pop residency. We are proud to be at the forefront of rock residencies as well and treat the city’s visitors to a new type of experience with Def Leppard.”
It looks like Exodus will be celebrating their 40th anniversary with a residency in their hometown of San Francisco. Steve “Zetro” Souza told Hungary’s Impact metal channel the following about that:
“I think that we’re gonna do something in San Francisco next year; we’re gonna do a residency there, back at home, for 40 years. We’re talking about it right now. Maybe three or four nights at a certain place. We played there last year two nights, called The Chapel. Probably bring old members up — that sort of thing — and see what happens. It’s in the talks; [it’s] definitely in the works right now.”
