Def Leppard's new concert film, Viva Hysteria, will be shown for a second and final time in theaters tonight (Tuesday) before its release on DVD on October 22nd. The footage was captured during the band's Las Vegas residency this past spring in which they did their Hysteria album in its entirety.
Singer Joe Elliott tells us, "I mean, to play that 63 minutes with the music that took nearly two-and-a-half years to create in 11 nights in Vegas is a pretty intense thing to try pull off. And the fact that we were doing it and it was the middle weekend that they’d filmed. So we had three shows under our belt. They were shows four and five. We had it down. We knew what we were doing."
