Def Leppard to release audio editions of London and Las Vegas concert films

Def Leppard will release standalone audio versions of a pair of recent live concert films on October 16. 

“Hysteria At The O2” and “Hits Vegas, Live At Planet Hollywood” – which were both included in the spring 2020 editions of “London To Vegas” – will be available as limited edition 2CD sets, while “Hits Vegas” will also be issued as a limited-edition transparent blue vinyl 3LP package on December 11. 

“Hysteria At The O2” presents a full December 2018 album performance of the band’s 1987 smash, “Hysteria”, at the London venue, while “Hits Vegas, Live At Planet Hollywood” delivers material from their Las Vegas residency at Zappos Theatre in Planet Hollywood. 

Def Leppard are previewing the projects with video of an acoustic performance of their 1992 single, "Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad", from “Hits Vegas.”

Produced by Mutt Lange, “Hysteria” reached No. 1 in their native UK and in the US, where it went on to achieve Diamond status for sales of more than 10 million while selling more than 30 million copies worldwide.
