Def Leppard have announced plans to return to Australia with a huge tour scheduled for later this year, and they’ll be playing their seminal 1987 album Hysteria in full.
The band will be taking their live show to venues in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide in November with a setlist encompassing their biggest hits, deep cuts and of course, the entirety of Hysteria.
“I’m delighted that we can bring the whole Hysteria album to Australia and New Zealand later this year,” said bassist Rick Savage. “From ‘Women’ to ‘Love and Affection’ plus many other faves thrown in for good measure. We can’t wait!”
Def Leppard are also bringing German rockers Scorpions along for the ride, marking the first ever national tour of Australia for the band behind hits like ‘Rock You Like A Hurricane’.
