Def Leppard Re-Record 'Hysteria'

Wednesday, March 20th 2013 11:30

Band celebrate their Las Vegas residency with updated classic.

Def Leppard will take over The Joint for 11 shows between March 22 and April 13. They will play their 'Hysteria' album in full, alongside some of their greatest hits.

'Hysteria' is the latest in a series of re-recordings by the band, who explained their reasoning last year: 

"It was, well, let’s just say a sensible business decision on our part" said Joe Elliott. "How can I put this politely? We were having a major disagreement with our ex-record label about the digital rights for our back catalog. We couldn’t come to a mutual understanding that seemed fair for both sides. So we finally just decided to re-record all our hits. We started with ‘Sugar’ and ‘Rock of Ages,’ and I think we did a pretty good job. It’s hard work trying to recreate something you did 30 years ago.”
