And There Will Be a Next Time... Live from Detroit is the third live album and fourth live release from the band Def Leppard. Released in 2017, it was recorded at the DTE Music Theatre in Clarkston, MI on July 15, 2016.[1]

Concept[edit]

Joe Elliott of Def Leppard said on their website, “I had this idea that we should film one of the shows from the 2016 tour because apart from the ‘Viva Hysteria’ shows, we hadn’t actually had a live performance filmed since 1988. With a new album out that was being so well received, it was just a case of where to do it. From the second the house lights went down, we could see the sun setting from the stage, and the energy from the crowd just seemed to intensify. It was a good choice and a great way to document Def Leppard in 2016.”[2]

Jeb Wright of Classic Rock Revisited (gives letter ratings from "A", or must own to "F", or puke) gave the album a "B" rating saying "Joe Elliot is a fine front man and he handles the lead vocals capably, while Phil Collen, Rick Savage and Viv Campbell cover the high notes extremely well (with or without any added technology). Instrumentally, the band performs proficiently and is amazing to watch. At the end of the day, this is a perfect representation of a band that still kicks butt live. They have the look, the songs, the enthusiastic crowd, the showmanship and the cool ass video and light presentation to keep going on for as long as they want."[3]

Dave Campbell of Metal Temple gave a positive review, saying "Seeing the set as a whole really reminded me of how great they are live, and that I need to get out and see them again and soon. Few bands have managed to stay relevant this far into their career, and produce a live show so full of fun and sincerity."[4]

Andy Lye of Jukebox:Metal wasn't impressed with how the lead vocals were, say "[Elliot] still hasn't adjusted his approach to older songs according to his current abilities, and therefore again cracks badly when he pushes himself too hard. When he doesn't, he sounds great (never more so than on groover Man Enough, the stand-out track from the new album), but in those moments when he does, it has the potential to ruin songs completely (e.g. Rocket), and this was entirely avoidable – even by something as simple as turning up the backing vocals to masque it."[5]
