As part of the NFL International Series meeting between the Oakland Raiders and Miami Dolphins, Def Leppard also built up the anticipation to the big game.

Def Leppard (pictured at TalkSport with presenter Colin Murray), who have sold more than 100 million albums since the 1970s, kicked off this season’s matches at Wembley Stadium as part of the pre-game show.

Macesport looked after the band’s PR duties over the weekend, which included interviews and appearances with TalkSport, Daily Mirror, Sky Sports News and the BT Sports Panel.

Ahead of the performance, lead singer Joe Elliott said: “Having most recently visited Wembley in May to watch Sheffield United in the FA Cup semi-final, I know what the atmosphere in the ground is like for ‘our’ football so I’m really looking forward to performing there before the NFL game and of course soaking up the excitement of the actual match. I can’t wait!”

Def Leppard were in fine form ahead of the encounter, which was played in front of a sold-out audience.

Last year Tinie Tempah and Ne-Yo performed pre-game in front of almost 80,000 people at the national stadium.

The British national anthem was sung by best-selling soprano Laura Wright, while Isaac Slade of The Fray perfromed the US anthem.
