Def Leppard stream VIVA! Hysteria audio sampler



Def Leppard are streaming an audio sampler of their recently-released live package, “VIVA! Hysteria”, which captures the band during their 2013 spring residency in Las Vegas.

The stream features previews of 11 songs from the set, which is available in multiple formats: 2CD+DVD digipak, Blu-ray, DVD and digital album download.

The UK rockers played 11 shows at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino this past spring, following in the footsteps of Motley Crue and Guns N’ Roses.

The Las Vegas shows featured two sets from the band: the first, a wild card collection of songs that changed from night to night – performed under the name “Ded Flatbird”; the second presented the band’s iconic 1987 album, “Hysteria”, from start to finish.

Last month, guitarist Phil Collen told Rolling Stone that the band are heading into the studio in January and that they will release an EP before they put out the follow-up to 2008’s “Songs From The Sparkle Lounge.”

“We've got a shitload of new songs,” explained Collen, “it's just implement them and then, ‘What direction are we gonna take? Who are we gonna get to produce it? Are we gonna do it ourselves? Are we gonna do multiple stuff?’ An album would obviously take too long, so we're gonna do about four or five songs, get those out and then next year have an album come out, so it'll be an EP and an album.”
