Def Leppard post new trailer for Las Vegas residency

Def Leppard are sharing a new preview/trailer for their first-ever Las Vegas residency.

Leppard will be taking over the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for an exclusive nine-show run entitled “VIVA Hysteria!”, and will perform their iconic album, “Hysteria,” in full, in addition to a greatest hits segment.

“A lot of other bands do this stuff, but I think it’s a little bit more special because ‘Hysteria’ was one of the diamond albums, especially in this day and age there are not that many albums that achieve that kind of status,” guitarist Phil Collen said recently. “That’s why it’s so important to us, it’s such a big selling album. It’s a challenge as well. We’ve never actually done that before. We’ve always said, yeah, we could do ‘High ‘n’ Dry.’ ‘Hysteria,’ that’s a lot more challenging. A lot of the songs on there are hard to sing and play at the same time.”

The shows will run from March 22 through April 10 at the Hard Rock Casino's venue The Joint.
