Def Leppard new Live album ‘Viva! Hysteria’

By on October 23, 2013

With 100 million records sold worldwide, Def Leppard continues to be one of the most potent forces in global rock. For the past 30 years the band has been a top box-office draw, consistently selling out arenas worldwide. Last Friday saw them issue in the UK an exciting new live release, ‘VIVA! Hysteria‘, across multiple formats.

Originally released on the 3 August 1987, the ‘Hysteria’ album took the already well established Def Leppard and catapulted the band into the stratosphere.

For the first time ever, Def Leppard played ‘Hysteria’ in its entirety during an eleven-show residency which started on 22 March 2013 at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel And Casino in Las Vegas. The band showcased some fan favourites and very rare songs from the early years of the band besides playing a selection of their greatest hits. The ‘VIVA! Hysteria’ show featured an elaborate set design created uniquely for the Las Vegas residency.

‘VIVA! Hysteria’ showcases for the first time this career-defining album performed live in its entirety – from start to finish – for a commercial release and on a digital format.
