“We’ve been asked for many years if we’d ever play an album in its entirety, and the answer was always no because we’d be out promoting a new album,” says lead vocalist Joe Elliot. “Then in March and April 2013 when we had no new music to promote, we had a chance to revisit arguably our most important album. It was an easy decision to make. As for Vegas, it’s no longer perceived as the place crooners go to die! Artists like Motley Crue, Elton John, Guns N Roses & Cheap Trick have recently done residencies and Rock ‘n Roll has definitely moved in! So, there was no better place for us to take the show. It was a fantastic experience for us and for our fans.”

“Def Leppard’s Las Vegas residency was a huge success and with this event, Fathom is bringing this legendary band to movie theaters in larger-than-life concert experience,” said Dan Diamond, senior vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “Viva! Hysteria will have Def Leppard fans on their feet – start to finish – in theatres nationwide.”
