Def Leppard

Def Leppard juiced up the lumbering blooze riffs of Led Zeppelin, put a spit-shine sheen on 'em, and slapped five thousand vocal tracks on the chorus. The result: humongous metal anthems with tongue-flickering axemanship and arenas full of topless teenage girls. Steadfastly working through a number of personal tragedies, the band has managed to keep releasing records well into the 21st Century and, maintaining a huge cult fan-base, shows no sign of quitting.

  • Viva! Hysteria: Live at the Joint, Las Vegas

    Def Leppard

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 2 hr 43 min

    With 100 million records sold worldwide, Def Leppard continues to be one of the most potent forces in global rock. For the past 30 years the band has been a top box-office draw, consistently selling out arenas worldwide. HYSTERIA was produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange and following its release the album reached No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200 chart in the U.S. and also No. 1 on the U.K. Album chart. For the first time ever, Def Leppard played HYSTERIA in its entirety during an eleven-show residency which started on March 22, 2013 at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel And Casino in Las Vegas. The band played also under the fictitious name of DED FLATBIRD (which came about after someone once mispronounced Def Leppard as "Dead Flat Bird"). Two different opening sets of 35 mins. on each of the nights. The band showcased some fan favourite and rare songs from the early years of the band besides playing a selection of their greatest hits, highlighting classic material from throughout their career. The "Viva! HYSTERIA" show featured an elaborate set design created only for Def Leppard 's Las Vegas residency. Known for legendary big-scale arena shows, Def Leppard will bring their over-the-top production to your house as "Viva! HYSTERIA" is their first full live show shot in HD released commercially. Finally "Viva! HYSTERIA" showcases for the first time a career-defining album (excluding concept albums) performed live in its entirety - from start to finish - for a commercial audio/video release. "Viva! HYSTERIA"! is unlike any show Def Leppard has ever done or will ever do again.
