Def Leppard will perform their seminal album ‘Hysteria’ in its entirety on tour this coming December.
The tour will see them perform tracks including ‘Animal’, ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’, ‘Hysteria’, ‘Armageddon It’, ‘Love Bites’, ‘Woman’ and ‘Rocket’ from their 1987 tour-de-force alongside other songs from their incredible back catalogue.
After kicking off in Dublin on Sat 1st December, the ‘Hysteria’ tour will take in a total of 10 dates across the UK including a Sheffield homecoming at the FlyDSA Arena. Cheap Trick will support at all shows.
Rick “Sav” Savage says” “After many requests from fans in the U.K, I'm delighted that we can bring the whole “Hysteria” album to arenas across Britain and Ireland later this year.
“From 'Women' to 'Love and Affection' plus many other faves thrown in for good measure. Oh, and our old pals Cheap Trick will be there also to help with the celebrations!! We can't wait'.”
Tickets go on sale from Planet Rock Tickets at 9am on Friday 26th January.
In a Def Leppard news double whammy, the band have also announced that their entire album back catalogue will make its streaming and download debut across all digital platforms from today.
One of the last multi-platinum selling acts to be made available on streaming and download platforms, music fans from all corners of the globe can now enjoy Def Leppard tracks digitally.
Joe Elliott says: “It is with a mixture of relief & euphoria that we now see our entire catalogue finally getting a digital release. Having embraced every other format with open arms, especially & more recently the re-emergence of vinyl, we’re now going to be available to everyone everywhere and honestly, it’s as exciting as the original releases were.”
Phil Collen adds: “We felt we'd been left out of the digital party, but it's a thrill for us to finally accept the invitation and to be able to say "Yeah, you can stream us, download us and hear us on all digital outlets".
