Def Leppard are planning to perform in its entirety their landmark 1987 album, Hysteria, as part of a special 2018 tour. As reported by Ultimate Classic Rock, guitarist Phil Collen was asked by L.A. radio station KLOS if the band had plans to celebrate the LP’s 30th anniversary.

“We are,” replied Collen. “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, yeah, we’ll be doing that.”

Hysteria was recently reissued as part of a boxed set that includes the original album (remastered), two discs of alternate versions and B-sides, two discs of live material, and a pair of DVDs. The original album yielded seven singles.

“… Having an album like Hysteria is kind of like having a tattoo--you make that decision, and we lived this album pretty much every day of our lives since then,” said singer Joe Elliot, speaking recently with Forbes. “It’s an important statement by the band … and luckily for us it remains one. That’s the great thing about it--it’s not one of these records that sold really well, then fell off the planet. It stayed alive, the way Hotel California or Rumours or Led Zeppelin 4 did.”
