Def Leppard apparently aren’t that anxious to return to Las Vegas.

A proposed string of shows in Sin City that was tentatively scheduled for November has now been put off until the end of 2015. According to Joe Elliott, in an interview with Palm Beach’s WKGR, the band wants to take a break after their current tour with KISS and then go into the studio to record their next album.

It has been six years since Leppard’s last studio album, 2008′s Songs From the Sparkle Lounge, and Elliott says it’s time to “get back on the horse. We did a month of writing and recording in February and for two weeks in May. We’re going to spend the rest of the year when the tour is done recording this album so we can get it out next Spring.

“If we can do that, we’ll get back on the road by April. I think we’re going to head off to Australia, Japan, the Far East, South Africa and then Europe. So, yeah, I think we’re going to be back in Vegas in 2015.”
