On August 3rd of 1987 Def Leppard released their 4th studio album Hysteria, now nearly 30 years later to the day (August 4th) the band will celebrate their top selling landmark album with the release of several ultimate 30th Anniversary editions.

The reissue will be available in multiple formats: the 1-CD “Vanilla” version, a 3-CD Deluxe version, a 2-LP set on black vinyl, a 2-LP “Direct to Consumer” version on limited-edition colored vinyl and a massive, 5-CD/2-DVD Super Deluxe Edition.

A couple of days ago (June 8th) I did a Chop Shop interview with long-time Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen to talk about the new release, the original offering 30 years ago, guitar and the band’s current tour.
