Following the news that British rock icons Def Leppard are to debut their full recording catalogue worldwide, on streaming and download platforms, the band have also announced a UK and Ireland tour, stopping at The O2 on Thursday 6 December 2018.
Rick “Sav” Savage says, “After many requests from fans in the U.K, I'm delighted that we can bring the whole “Hysteria” album to arenas across Britain and Ireland later this year. From 'Women' to 'Love and Affection' plus many other faves thrown in for good measure. Oh, and our old pals Cheap Trick will be there also to help with the celebrations!! We can't wait”.
These will be the first Def Leppard UK and Ireland tour dates since the sold-out arena run in late 2015. The band will play their first ever show at The O2. 2018 also marks the 35th anniversary of “Hysteria’s” predecessor “Pyromania”.
The seminal 1987 “Hysteria” album is rightly seen as a landmark recording in the history of rock music. It was the album that saw Def Leppard conquer the world with global hits such as “Animal”, “Pour Some Sugar On Me”, “Hysteria”, “Armageddon It”, “Love Bites”, “Woman” and “Rocket”. The band will deliver “Hysteria” in full alongside other songs from their incredible catalogue.
Tickets go on general sale Friday 26 January at 9am.
