Hysteria live next year!
Phil Collen reveals Def Leppard’s plans for 2018.
Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen has let slip that the band are planning a series of shows to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of their classic album.
Collen revealed the news while appearing as a guest on Jonesy’s Jukebox, the radio show of former Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones. Asked whether Leppard were considering the possibility of performing Hysteria in its entirety, he said: “We are. I know it’ll be next year we’re gonna go on tour. We’re getting some offers to play the whole album all the way through. So we’ll be doing that.”
A few days earlier, at a fan gathering, singer Joe Elliott was more circumspect when the same question came up. “Watch this space,” he said. “There are going to be shows next year, there’s probably going to be shows in the UK and they may well feature an iconic album in total… or they might not.” DL
