Def Leppard

From today, January 19, British rock icons Def Leppard make their full recording catalog worldwide on digital formats. The UK rockers are one of the last multi-platinum selling acts to be made available on streaming and download platforms.

Frontman Joe Elliot says, “It is with a mixture of relief and euphoria that we now see our entire catalogue finally getting a digital release. Having embraced every other format with open arms, especially and more recently the re-emergence of vinyl, we’re now going to be available to everyone everywhere and honestly, it’s as exciting as the original releases were.”

Phil Collen adds, “We felt we’d been left out of the digital party, but it’s a thrill for us to finally accept the invitation and to be able to say ‘Yeah, you can stream us, download us and hear us on all digital outlets.’”

But bassist Rick “Sav” Savage says, “After many requests from fans in the U.K, I’m delighted that we can bring the whole Hysteria album to arenas across Britain and Ireland later this year. From ‘Women’ to ‘Love and Affection'’ plus many other faves thrown in for good measure. Oh, and our old pals Cheap Trick will be there also to help with the celebrations! We can’t wait.” The arena tour includes a date in original hometown Sheffield.
