Filmed in December 2018, "Hysteria At The O2" captures DEF LEPPARD celebrating the groundbreaking "Hysteria", one of their two diamond-certified 10-times-platinum albums (the other being "Pyromania"). Performed in its entirety before a ravenous sold-out crowd, this momentous homecoming event is made all the more powerful as it was their long-awaited debut at the iconic O2 Arena in London.

Six months later, just after their induction in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, DEF LEPPARD undertook a residency in Las Vegas at Zappos Theatre in Planet Hollywood. "Hits Vegas, Live At Planet Hollywood" is a 28-song deep dive into not only their greatest hits, but rarities such as "Too Late For Love", "Billy's Got A Gun", "Slang" and "Promises". Highlighting DEF LEPPARD's versatility, "Hits Vegas" presents a livewire stage show with two stages and video walls, punctuated with intimate, acoustic renditions of rarely performed songs "Let Me Be The One", "We Belong", "Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad" and "Two Steps Behind".
"Hits Vegas" offers a behind-the-scenes bonus feature, while "Hysteria At The O2" is rounded out with the bonus "Hysteria: Then And Now" mini-documentary. As a whole, "London To Vegas" encapsulates the prestige of one of rock's most iconic bands.

"Hysteria Live", featuring the performance of the complete "Hysteria" album from the O2 show, will also be available separately on crystal clear 2LP, packaged in a gatefold sleeve.
