Def Leppard Planning 60 Date North American Tour

Rick Allen was recently interviewed by BackstageAxxess and revealed that Def Leppard are planning a 60 date North American tour. He said the following:

“I think we’ve got a show in London, which kind of kicks things off. And then we’ve got about a 60-date tour planned for 2018, and that’s probably gonna be North America and Canada. And I take it that’s probably gonna keep me pretty busy for the whole of next year.”

He said the band are “trying to work out all the details, but [he] should imagine that announcement’s coming pretty soon.” The band was rumored to be hitting the road with Journey, so we will see if that’s true in due time.

Def Leppard To Release 30th Anniversary Edition Of “Hysteria” In August

Joe Elliott commented:

“It’s hard to believe that it’s been thirty years since the release of ‘Hysteria’. 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.”

Phil Collen added:

“I look back at the whole ‘Hysteria’ experience with excitement along with fond and tragic memories. It was our commercial zenith, thanks to Mutt Lange’s insistence that we create an artistic hybrid between hard rock and pop Top 40 music using every genre available as an inspiration. It was a rock album that would garner seven hit singles. Mission accomplished.”
