USA Today: “Def Leppard will play its multiplatinum 1987 album ‘Hysteria’ in its entirety for Viva Hysteria!, which will begin March 22 at The Joint at Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. The band’s stay follows Hard Rock residencies from Motley Crue and Guns N’ Roses.
“We’re very happy to be part of what I call the first wave of rockers to take Vegas back from the lounge singers — Wayne Newton and his type,” says Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott.
“Things like Run Riot, Don’t Shoot Shotgun and Love and Affection got left by the wayside because of the popularity of other songs that, to be frank, if you don’t play them live, you don’t get out of the building alive,” Elliott says. “The oddest thing is going to be doing Sugar fifth. In many respects, it’s like the Troggs opening with Wild Thing.”
