The trailer for “Step Inside: Hysteria at 30” has been streamed, and it looks like it’s going to be awesome!
Def Leppard‘s album “Hysteria” turns 30 on August 3! To mark the album’s anniversary the band has decided to get up close and personal.
“In some respects it really does seem like only yesterday.”
– Joe Elliot on “Hysteria” Release
Hysteria is the fourth studio album released by these U.K. born rockers. The album is Def Leppard’s best-selling album to date.
Impressively, “Hysteria” effortlessly achieved No. 1 in both the UK and the US. The album even went on to achieve Diamond status for sales of more than a whopping 10 million while selling more than 25 million worldwide.
The title of the album was thought up by drummer Rick Allen. It refers to his 1984 auto accident and the media coverage surrounding it. Additionally, it was the last album to feature guitarist Steve Clark before his death.
The making of the album took over three years and endured many obstacles along the way. This includes the December 1984 car accident that cost Allen his left arm.
On August 4, a remastered edition of this epic record will be released in many different packages. Amongst these include an impressive 7-disc Super Deluxe Edition, 3CD Deluxe Version, 1CD Vanilla Version, 2-LP Black Vinyl Version and a limited edition 2-LP Colored Vinyl Version. Wicked!
The reissues even include B-sides and live tracks, as well as the audio for “In The Round In Your Face (Live)” on CD for the first time ever!
“I look back at the whole ‘Hysteria’ experience with excitement along with fond and tragic memories.”
-Joe Elliot on “Hysteria”
