Rock legends Def Leppard have announced that they will perform their seminal album ‘Hysteria’ in its entirety, on UK and Ireland arena tour dates in December.
The tour will see them perform tracks including ‘Animal’, ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ and ‘Armageddon It’ from their 1987 tour-de-force, alongside other songs from their incredible back catalogue. Cheap Trick will support Def Leppard on all UK and Ireland shows.
Def Leppard drummer Rick 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.”
The band have also announced that their entire album back catalogue will make its streaming and download debut across all digital platforms from today.
Joe Elliott says: “It is with a mixture of relief and euphoria that we now see our entire catalogue finally getting a digital release. Having embraced every other format with open arms, especially and 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”.
