Rock icons DEF LEPPARD are about to run riot Down Under, where they will be finally playing their landmark, longest recording in full - 1987’s seminal Hysteria LIVE!
Four years in the making, Hysteria is the groundbreaking, 12-track album that saw Def Leppard overcome the adversity of drummer Rick Allen’s car crash injury and conquer the world. An enduring legacy dripping with rock anthems such as “Animal”, “Pour Some Sugar On Me”, “Hysteria”, “Armageddon It”, “Love Bites”, “Woman” and “Rocket”.
Igniting this epic piece of rock music history, Def Leppard will perform Hysteria in full alongside other songs from their 100-million-plus selling catalogue. 2018 also marks the 35th anniversary of Hysteria’s predecessor Pyromania, home to "Photograph”.
Rick “Sav” Savage says, “I'm delighted that we can bring the whole Hysteria album to Australia and New Zealand later this year. From 'Women' to 'Love and Affection' plus many other faves thrown in for good measure. We can't wait!”
Joining Def Leppard as special guests will be German rock legends SCORPIONS, for their first-ever multi-city tour of Australia in the band’s 50-plus-years history. The rock heavyweights played their debut Australian show at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre in October 2016 as part of their 50th Anniversary World Tour.
Arguably Germany’s most successful rock band with massive hits “Wind of Change” and “Rock You Like A Hurricane”, these November performances will be the band’s first-ever national tour.
