VIDEO: Def Leppard preview Hysteria 30th anniversary documentary

Def Leppard are streaming the trailer for their upcoming mini-documentary, “Step Inside: Hysteria At 30.”

The project is expected to arrive in sync with the upcoming 30th anniversary reissues of the UK band’s 1987 album, “Hysteria.”

Due August 4, a remastered edition of the record will be issued in various packages, including a 7-disc Super Deluxe Edition, 3CD Deluxe Version, 1CD Vanilla Version, 2-LP Black Vinyl Version and a limited edition 2-LP Colored Vinyl Version.

The reissues include B-sides and live tracks, plus the audio for “In The Round In Your Face (Live)” on CD for the first time.

“It’s hard to believe that it’s been thirty years since the release of Hysteria,” says frontman Joe Elliott. “In some respects it really does seem like only yesterday. So, to mark this milestone, we wanted to do something very special for our fans and give them the definitive version of the album, one that incorporates all of the memories and milestones that we caught on tape and some of the madness that we got up to on the road. We hope it means as much to you as it does to us.”

Def Leppard’s fourth album, “Hysteria” built on the group’s rising popularity from the success of 1983’s “Pyromania.” Introduced by the lead single, “Animal”, the project exploded with six more hits, including US Top 5 tracks “Pour Some Sugar On Me”, “Hysteria” and “Armageddon It”, and the US No. 1 “Love Bites.”

Produced by Mutt Lange, “Hysteria” reached No. 1 in the band’s native UK and the US, where it went on to achieve Diamond status for sales of more than 10 million while selling more than 25 million worldwide.

Def Leppard recently wrapped up a North American tour with Poison and Tesla, and will return to action in September to begin a series of shows in South America.
