26 years later,  The World Will Get Hysterical, Hysteria and you will feel it!

 On the heels of the successful Hard Rock Residency,  Def Leppard set to release ” Viva Hysteria! The Film ”  this fall in major theaters world wide.

If you are like me,  26 years ago you stood in line at the local record store to get what would become a land mark album for the band Def Leppard.  I totally admit to being what some call a ” LeppHead ” and saw the band numerous times, and especially so on the In the Round In your Face Hysteria tour (much to the dismay of my Metallica loving boyfriend who went with me! Frank later admitted he enjoyed himself because he was a guitarist himself and got to see Steve play).  I was lucky enough to again see the band earlier this year, numerous times, during their residency at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Not only did it take me back to a wonderful point in my life hearing all those songs played again as if they were almost new, but, the band sounded amazing! Joe was in top form and Sav, Rick, Phil and Vivian ( who later we found was beginning to undergo Chemotherapy) were just as energetic and their vocal harmonies sounding just as awesome as they did 20 odd years ago.  Now the band is releasing a film to be shown in theaters around the world and sharing the magic of those shows with their devoted faithful, young and old, who may not have been able to make the trip out and see the show live, or who wish to relive those nights that took place in late March to Mid-April 2013.  An added treat for those fans will be being able to see the footage of the acoustic set they played privately for fans who attended the meet and greet ( and yes- it WAS Phenominal!).  Before leaving the stage that last night of their residency,  lead singer Joe Elliott thanked the fans and Las Vegas and said there would be a next time as far as a residency goes.  The film is set for a US release in October ( it is reported it will be out in the UK in mid September) to be followed up with a DVD release. While we don’t have ALL the dates and theaters it will be playing in, we do have a decent list to share with you and will try to update it closer to release date.  Please check with your local theater for times and any changes they may have! Get ready to Armageddon it all over again-  we know it will most definitely make you as Excitable as we are!
