Motorists in San Antonio, Texas got a lesson in the enduring appeal of Def Leppard this week when thousands of fans descended upon the band's appearance at a local Wal-Mart, clogging traffic for miles.

The band's promotional performance at the store drew an estimated crowd of 8,000, and prompted authorities to block off traffic for five miles in both directions.

The rush bodes well for the band, whose eighth album, "Euphoria," arrived in stores this week.
