Def Leppard have released a live video showcasing their classic Hysteria track ‘Run Riot’, which you can check out below.
The ‘Run Riot’ clip was filmed in London in 2018 and will feature on Hysteria At The O2 which makes up the first half of the band’s London To Vegas release. The second part, Hits Vegas, Live At Planet Hollywood, was captured during Def Leppard’s successful 2019 Sin City residency.
The live package was due to be released on 24 April through Universal Music, but the release date has now been moved to May.
Def Leppard say: “Due to the current situation regarding COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the release date of all the London To Vegas formats to 29 May. Stay safe, and keep on rockin’.”
London To Vegas will be released in a variety of formats, including a deluxe box set which will include a 40-page hardback book. There are also a number of bundle options available direct from Universal, including autographed sets.
The ‘Hysteria At The O2’ concert was the first time Def Leppard played their smash hit album in its entirety in London, and the band also dusted off more of their catalogue on the night, performing tracks including ‘Let’s Get Rocked’, ‘Photograph’ and ‘Rock Of Ages’. The package will also feature the mini-documentary ‘Hysteria: Then And Now.’
‘Hits Vegas, Live At Planet Hollywood’, meanwhile, features a total of 28 songs, including acoustic versions of ‘Let Me Be The One’, ‘We Belong’, ‘Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad’ and ‘Two Steps Behind.’
Earlier this month, Def Leppard released The Early Years 79-81 box set to coincide with the 40th anniversary of their debut album On Through The Night. The new box is spread across five discs, with remastered editions of On Through The Night and 1981’s High ‘N’ Dry joined by B-sides, remixes, live cuts and more.
Frontman Joe Elliott said: “Well the fans asked, and we listened! Really excited to have our early years reworked with a load of rare material including the newly unearthed Live at the Oxford New Theatre, recorded on the 1980 UK tour.
