Def Leppard Streaming and UK & Eire Tour Announcement
As you read this, the entire Def Leppard recording catalogue has just become available to stream globally via all your favourite digital music services. Def Leppard are one of the last multi-platinum selling acts to strike such a deal, but at long last music fans across the world can now enjoy tracks and albums from one of rock’s most enduring bands, any time any place.
Said Joe Elliott, “It is with a mixture of relief & euphoria that we now see our entire catalogue finally getting a digital release. Having embraced every other format with open arms, especially & 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”.
As a cornerstone of rock and roll’s history, Def Leppard’s substantial career includes numerous hit singles including their first early chart hit Wasted, to their radio and MTV staples Bringin’ On The Heartbreak, Photograph, Rock of Ages, Too Late, Animal, Armageddon It, Love Bites, Rocket and Let’s Get Rocked. Their ground-breaking multi-platinum albums, including two of the best-selling albums of all time with sales of more than 10 million copies each in the U.S. alone Pyromania and Hysteria, captured some of the group’s legendary tracks, bringing together classic Leppard hits such as Pour Some Sugar on Me, Hysteria and “Foolin’.
Speaking of Hysteria, Def Leppard will embark on an 11 date UK & Eire tour this December which will see the band perform their iconic album in it’s entirety, plus other songs from their awesome catalogue.
“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’. – Rick “Sav” Savage
Tickets go on sale on January 26 from Live Nation.
