Pre-order Hysteria (Remastered 2017)

“It’s hard to believe that it’s been thirty years since the release of Hysteria…as in some respects it really does seem like only yesterday. So, to mark this milestone, we wanted to do something very special for our fans and give them the definitive version of the album, one that incorporates all of the memories and milestones that we caught on tape and some of the madness that we got up to on the road. We hope it means as much to you as it does to us” – Joe Elliott

“I look back at the whole Hysteria experience with excitement along with fond and tragic memories. It was our commercial zenith thanks to Mutt Lange's insistence that we create an artistic hybrid between hard rock and pop top 40 music using every genre available as an inspiration. It was a rock album that would garner seven hit singles. Mission accomplished.” – Phil Collen

Essential listening for fans across the board, Hysteria indisputably ranks as one of the most decorated and revered rock albums of all time. As the group’s second consecutive RIAA Diamond-certified record (over 10 million sales in the USA), it would go on to sell over 30 million copies worldwide. Moreover, the record staked a spot in the US Top 40 for 96 weeks matched only by Born in the U.S.A. UK’s Q magazine placed it among the 100 Greatest Albums of All Time and Rolling Stone touted it on the prestigious 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. Dominating multiple charts, it captured #1 in the UK album charts and on the USA Billboard Top 200 bolstered by immortal Top 5 anthems such as Pour Some Sugar On Me, Animal, Love Bites, Hysteria, Rocket, and Armageddon It.

Hysteria left an indelible mark on rock ‘n’ roll. Powered by stadium-filling drums, rapturous guitars, and unshakable choruses, the record saw Def Leppard rightfully claim their place among rock’s divinities forever. As a result, its influence now reverberates through three generations of artists to follow. It also historically marked their third straight collaboration with producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange.

Among the new formats, the Super Deluxe Edition boasts 5-CDs/2-DVDs including four books—Story Of, a Ross Halfin photo book, Discography, Hysteria Tour Program, and Tour Poster. The Deluxe features 3 CDs, the Vinyl is 2 black LPs, along with a standard 1-CD. In addition, there will be a limited-edition 2-LP Coloured Vinyl available for the first time, from the uDiscover Store.
