Rock Legends Def Leppard Feast on Vegan Junk Food Before Newcastle Show
Rock Gods Def Leppard feasted on vegan junk food before their show at Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle this week. The internationally renowned rock stars dined on mouth-watering buckets of fried ‘fricken’, a fricken burger with vegan cheese and vegan buffalo wings from vegan junk food restaurant aptly named, Junk it up.
The rockstars who are in the middle of their 2018 Hysteria Tour, are no strangers to the plant-based lifestyle, with drummer Rick Allen and lead guitarist Phil Collen, both being vegan. Rick Allen also launched a luxury vegan bag line this year called BonSac.

Vegan Def Leppard
Junk it Up, the vegan junk food restaurant opened in Newcastle last February. Co-owner Vicky Tate said the concept for the vegan comfort food eatery came from cravings for junk foods that she thought she would never be able to eat again. She was walking past a kebab shop and the smells made her reminisce about the comfort food she used to be able to eat, so she came up with a vegan junk food concept. She wanted to change the perception that vegans only eat salads.
The vegan comfort food restaurant makes its vegan chicken and kebabs from a plant-based soy protein called ‘fricken’, made in-house. The southern fried chicken is served in a bucket and the kebabs come in four delicious flavors, bourbon bbq, tandoori, southern fried and doner. Tate says she loves seeing the look on peoples faces when they try their food for the first time.
The restaurant seems to be quite popular with meat eaters too. With dishes like their vegan southern fried chicken, a plant-based jumbo hot dog, and the munch box being fan favorites.
