Mott the Hoople wrap up their second U.K. reunion tour in four years tonight (Monday) when they take the stage at the O2 Arena in London.
It's their first arena show on these two tours. Singer and guitarist Ian Hunter tells us he’d rather play a theater like the four other shows this time out, but says they’ll make it work. And he says those four shows have been fantastic. “Great. They’re up, they won’t sit down. It’s brilliant.” Guitarist Mick Ralphs adds, “It’s getting there. It’s getting better and we’re enjoying it.”
Last night’s show in Manchester and tonight's in London are being recorded for a CD and DVD release.
Def Leppard singer and huge Mott fan Joe Elliott joined the band Wednesday night in Glasgow, Scotland during “All the Young Dudes.”
