In Part 2 of this 3 Part series of the Def Leppard Live albums we are tackling Viva! Hysteria (If you want to read Part 1 just click on Mirror Ball: Live & More).
Per Joe Elliott, Def Leppard has been asked numerous times to play one of their albums in its entirety. At the times they had been asked, they were busy supporting an album and didn’t feel it was appropriate. Along comes the day when they are in between albums and the time felt right.
They took up residency at the Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas from March 22nd to April 13th in 2013. From those shows comes the release of Viva! Hysteria. The 2 CD set and DVD of the show make for a great addition to your Def Leppard collection. I have to admit I am mad at myself for not making it out to Vegas to see this show as it would have been a special show to have seen. I have seen them so many times, but this would probably have been the coolest.
