On August 4th, almost 30 years to the exact day (8/3/1987), DEF LEPPARD is set to issue a very cool Anniversary Edition of their incredibly successful 4th (studio) album, "Hysteria." Although DEF LEP previously issued a 20th Anniversary set for the album, the new collection promises a wealth of more material that will be available in a number of consumer choices, from a remastered, single-disc version, to a mammoth, 7-disc set that's full of bonus material! In a recent interview w/ Rolling Stone Magazine, lead singer, JOE ELLIOTT said of the "Hysteria" album, “During our 40-year career, we’ve been blessed to have experienced some incredible highs, work with some amazing people and enjoy success beyond our wildest dreams. The Hysteria album was a labour of love, of that there is no doubt. But we’ve always believed you get what you give, and the longevity of the album is testimony to our sold belief in ourselves and the music.” The new Anniversary set will also be issued on 2 separate, double-album vinyl releases, also with a healthy amount of bonus material. And the 7-disc box set? DEF LEP fans will absolutely LOVE this! Included in the Deluxe Box will be all manner of ‘extras, including: promo videos, live performances, the Classic Albums documentary on the album, and the audio form DEF LEPPARD’s ‘In The Round, In Your Face’ concert film!
