Phil Collen has revealed that the band will be recording the concerts, with plans to release a live album.
"Absolutely, we are going to do 'Hysteria Live' We are going to do ‘Hysteria’ from start to finish,” stated the guitarist. "We are actually doing two sets; we are going to open up for ourselves. We are going to do 45 minutes, take a break and then do ‘Hysteria’. We are learning hundreds of songs and we are going to be doing songs that we’ve not played in years, or that we’ve never done. It is going to be really great.”
In order to keep the shows fresh, Collen also revealed that the first set will change each night, comprising a mix of Def Leppard classics and their favourite covers. "We are just going to really do a lot of stuff that the fans will love" he said.
