Def Leppard launch Pyromania 40th anniversary celebrations

Def Leppard are launching a year-long celebration of their 1983 album classic, “Pyromania”, in sync with the 40th anniversary of its release on January 20.

Produced by Mutt Lange and introduced with the lead single, “Photograph”, the UK band’s third album would deliver a series of hits while going on to break Def Leppard in several countries – including America, as the project hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200 on its way to sales of more than 10 million copies in the region.

“Hugely important record for our career,” explains Joe Elliott in a new video featuring memories from the band members, “and, in America, it broke us wide open; it became one of the biggest records of the year – only behind Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ in sales.”

The group’s social media team adds: “We’re kicking off the celebrations with a special message from the band. Follow along and stay tuned as we celebrate #PYROMANIA40 all year long.”

Def Leppard are gearing up to hit the road with Motley Crue for a global stadium tour this year, which will open with a pair of intimate dates in Atlantic City, NJ next month before heading to Mexico and South America this spring and resuming in Europe in May.
